Accent Velocity is a step sequencer which alters the velocity of incoming notes on steps you choose to accent. Inspired by hardware drum machines with accent controls,. this device will take incoming drum hits or notes and re-invent their flavour and flow.
Once you've elected some steps, turning the Accent knob alters the velocity difference between the accented and non-accented steps. With maximum accent the sequence will play the accented steps and reduce the velocity of any notes on the non-accented steps. You can also boost the accented steps to maximum velocity for more impact! Dial it back and this difference gradually moves them closer until its turned fully anti clockwise for no effect on incoming velocities.
Select steps to boost the off-beat or emphasise a four-on-the-floor ryhthm - as long as it's receiving notes, it'll have an impact. A nifty Invert button allows you to switch accented and unaccented steps over for a quick swap-around!
The length of the sequence can be changed from 1-32 steps - giving you an opportunity to utilise interesting rhythmns and timings. The sequencer clock can be altered to operate in forward, backward and ping-pong modes - as well as being randomised and reset to start
