Kandi: Circle Sequencer

Kandi: Circle Sequencer

A beautiful step sequencer:

Lovechild of LockStitch_2 and Adlais_V.

4 interactive 'Euclidean' trigger sequencers, combined in weird and wonderful ways

Kandi: Melody Sequencer

Kandi is a tuneful, polyphonic step sequencer

Kandi uses 4 independent pattern generators to create inspiring melodic phrases

Kandi's UI controls have been stripped down to give easy, repeatable access to some very complex patterns

I'm so not going to use the word evolving...

Kandi - Circle Sequencer is available as a Max for Live device for use only with M4L within Ableton Live

Kandi_1.0

Kandi’s UI is laid out in four sections:

  1. Clock Pulse module
  2. Euclidean Trigger module
  3. Pitch module
  4. Note Out module

Each module has 4 parallel generators colour coded: Green, Blue, Yellow and Red

Signal Flow – Left to right

  • A Master Clock generates a regular pulse at a division of Live’s tempo
  • Master Clock is divided and a pulse count sent to the Euclidean module
  • The Euclidean module generates a series of Triggers which are sent to the Pitch Module
  • The Pitch module outputs values to the Note module where they are combined with Velocity and Duration data to generate MIDI Note Out

Iosif – Interference Pattern Step Sequencer

Iosif – Interference Pattern Step Sequencer

Iosif: Makes Machine Music -

A new way to step sequence.

Easily create extended, complex melodies from just three numbers

Iosif combines 2 innovative techniques to create monophonic melodies

  • 3*integer Interference Pattern generates complex, evolving rhythms
  • K-Teck's advanced Scale Scanning module to apply melody to the rhythm

Iosif makes machine music beautiful

 

Iosif features:

Iosif can generate complex, non-repeating rhythms

To do this Iosef generates a series of Trigger Pulses from an ‘Interference Pattern’ formed by the interactions of 3 numbers 

These 3 numbers control 3 looping Pattern Counters

Every time a Pattern Counter resets a note is triggered in the Scale Scan Module

The Scale Scanner is taken from Adlais V - it has been improved with full control over 10 octaves

 

About Iosif:

Iosif uses Joseph Schillinger's interference pattern concept to generate complex rhythms

Iosif has very few controls - don't let that deceive you

Iosif is easily the most powerful monophonic step sequencer K-Teck has released

Every control can be automated by Live - clip or arrangement automation

Every control can be modulated by another Max for Live device like an LFO or K-Teck's Paul sequencer

In short - if you like step sequencers you'll love Iosif

 

December 2020 - Iosif has been updated to permit MIDI Note In to control - Step Advance and Root Note

Sarn Elen: Scale Scanning Sequencer: Free Download

Sarn Elen: Scale Scanning Sequencer: Free Download

Sarn Elen: Free Tech Test Sequencer -

Try out some unique K-Teck features in a deceptively simple 'Euclidean' Step Sequencer

What is a Scale Scanning Sequencer?

Sarn Elen 2 loads a musical scale

Sarn Elen 2's clock counts around the steps of the 'euclidean' circle

When the count  encounters a 'hit' on the circle, a trigger is sent to the scale scanner

These triggers step through the intervals of the scale

For the Harmonic Minor that would be notes 0, 2, 3, 5 ,7, 8 and 11 of an Octave

Sarn Elen 2's triggers can skip through the scale in increments of 1, 2, 3 or 4 notes

So for harmonic minor in 3s that would be 0, 5, 11, 3, 8, 2, 7  and back to 0 again

Sarn Elen 2 has several other new tricks up her sleeve

Download now and see for yourself

 

 

What is a 'Euclidean' Sequencer?

Euclid's algorithm calculates the Greatest Common Divisor of 2 integers

In electronic music it is used to fill a number of empty steps (#Steps) with events (#Hits)

Sarn Elen 2's 'Euclidean' section controls a gate which allows notes to pass to the output

All controls are MIDI mappable and automatable - no more drawing in notes

LockStitch 2: Quad ‘Euclidean’ Sequencer

LockStitch 2: Quad ‘Euclidean’ Sequencer

LockStitch_2 -

4 interactive 'Euclidean' sequencers are perfect for polyrhythmic percussion sequencing.

The new Combiner algorithms create unique 'non-euclidean' patterns.

New features in v2:

LockStitch_2's all new Combiners allow creation of more complex rhythms than are normally obtained with Euclidean Sequencing

LockStitch_2's new Velocity Sequences add expression to your rhythms

LockStitch_2 plays nicely with Drum Racks for beat programming - is also good for melodic work

Features:

LockStitch has four 'euclidean' sequencers with control over:

  • Clock Division
  • Sequence Length
  • Sequence Fill (Hits)
  • Sequence Rotation
  • Sequence Direction

 

More Features:

Each of LockStitch's Sequences can be 'Combined' any one of the 4 sequences:

There are 12 possible outputs from each Combiner

  • Thru, Combine, Interlace, Join
  • 4*Reverse
  • 4*Scramble

More Features:

Each of LockStitch's Sequences Output Sections offer:

  • Note Output
  • Probability
  • Active

Plus Velocity Faders for each sequence step

LockStitch v1 videos

What makes LockStitch_2 different from v1 is that the combinations are significantly improved:

Want to join 2 sequences end to end - done

Want to interlace or overlay 2 sequences - also done

Want to offset the 2 combined sequences? - that too...

Plus reverse and scramble (retains the Fill value) options for all algorithms

Sometimes the spacing in euclidean patterns is just too regular

Not with LockStitch-2 - This is euclidean sequencing on steroids

Update from v1 is free - as are all K-Teck updates - check your User Area or register here

I am super happy with this and i think you will be too
