Oliver

Dual Non-Euclidean Step Sequencer

OK, what is Oliver?
Oliver is a monophonic step sequencer
How does it work?
There are two (non)euclidean sequences playing alternate steps
Yellow, Blue, Yellow, Blue...
The pattern of 'Hits' can be created and modified using an array of controls
Oliver is particularly great for bass lines...

Oliver is available as a Max for Live device for use only with M4L within Ableton Live

Each has a full set of controls for Fill (Hits), Rotation through X and Y axes, Squeeze (the non-euclidean bit) which clusters the Hits to left or right, Velocity, Duration - up to 4* and Range up to 1 octave.
Plus there's a pair of Flip Flop (On/Off) modulators - which can be combined and sent to every independent sequence control
+ of course everything is available for modulation/automation.

A video

There are two (non)euclidean sequences playing alternate steps:
Yellow - steps 1, 3, 5, 7 etc., Blue - steps 2, 4, 6, 8 etc.
Each has a full set of modifier controls:
Fill:
Fill Yellow = 3
Fill Blue = 5
Its amazing how quickly Oliver gets funky...

Rotate X:

Rotate either or both sequences horizontally - to the right

Rotate X Blue = 6

If a 'Hit' reaches the end it is 'wrapped' around to the beginning

Rotate Y

Both sequences can be 'rotated' vertically too...

Rotate Y Blue = 3

Squeeze:

Squeezes the Hits together, to the left or right

As Rotate X = 6, the blue hits are clustered together in the middle

Squeeze Blue = 1.0

Skip:

Spaces the notes played further apart

So Skip = 1 plays adjacent notes, Skip = 2 misses every other note in the scale

Skip Blue = 7

Range:

Range = 1.0 = 1 octave, Range = 0.5 = 1/2 octave

So you can cluster notes together vertically too..

Range Blue = 0.2

As the Blue sequence has already been rotated vertically

the cluster of notes is higher up the scale

Flip: counts steps before the Value is sent to the destination modifier

Flop: counts steps until the Value is switched off

Modulation:

Every sequence parameter can be internally modulated

A pair of Flip Flop switches are used - Yellow and Blue

A Value is set for the modulation and then 2 Step Counters control the Switches:

Yellow and Blue switches can be applied to any destination modifier

Sending both can generate interesting 4 step modulation patterns

Random:

Oliver has two Random buttons

These randomise the sequence modifiers

Oliver is Push 2 ready

Featuring 8 banks of parameters at your control...
