This METROSTEP is a programmable step sequencer which triggers MIDI notes in time with Ableton Live. It has four timing modes, multiple velocity settings and a step length from anywhere between 1 and 32 steps.
Each step of the main sequencer represents a retrigger timing, with low speeds at the bottom and high speeds at the top. Notes can be triggered in triplets, whole notes, dotted notes and all combined.
Velocity is controlled in three ways: fixed (all notes have the same velocity), random (between a minimum and maximum value) and sequenced (drawn below the notes triggers).
You'll find it instantly playable for many creative uses - particularly for creating hi-hat and percussive patterns. It's been specially designed to be used on multiple tracks so numerous instances won't conflict like with other Max4Live patches.
The sequencer clock can run at a rate independent from the note triggers and will operate in forward, backward and ping-pong modes. All values can be randomised using the tiny R buttons for ultra chaotic, unpredictable playback.
Included in the download are:
- Install Guide
- Max4Live AMXD File
*** UPDATE*** - METROSTEP now has a feature to slde between velocity values within the sequencer. This works really well for subtle and extreme slides - and can be set by miliseconds up to 250.
