Re: [AH] Is there a hardware sequencer that supports playing the same se

Hi John,

this is what I did at home yesterday:

I use Cubase VST sequencer. I created this 16-step sequence that I also 
heavily modulated with FM, until it sounded right. I recorded this, and than 
started playing the same thing with different filter/FM settings/envelope 
lengths, but also moving the sequence in 1/16 x N increments, until I got 
the second sequence that, due to relationship to the first one, complemented 
the whole mix very nicely (in both rhythmic and timbre sense). I believe 
this relationship is truly worth exploring.

Hardware sequencer would speed up the process described above, and it is 
worth saying that I always look for opportunities to beef up my modular, and 
excuses to spend more on modules :-)

Regards

Zoran
