Introducing The Octopoid Sequencer ...
Many well known and famous rhythms can be related to Euclidean Patterns: Geometric patterns which are generated by a specific algorithm. They offer great opportunities to generate a broad spectrum of new and interesting rhythms and allow you to easily create fresh rhythms and grooves for your next music productions. Within just a few steps, complex and inspiring patterns can be created. Go for a dive with The Octopoid Sequencer and experience the creative world of Euclidean patterns …
Assume a full bar is split into a certain amount of beats, for example four beats. Next define the amount of active beats, let’s say two. Finally the algorithm decides which two of the total amount of four beats should be active. Just by playing with these two parameters you can already create a huge amount of inspiring rhythms. But The Octopoid Sequencers offers more …
By choosing odd-numbered or differing beats for each of the eight modules, rotating the patterns, changing playback speeds (x2, x4, …) for individual modules or by customizing and randomizing velocities / timings as well as using more variations, complex and interesting rhythms can be easily created which will lead to surprising new inspirations.
Beyond rhythms and grooves: Create melodic progressions by triggering chord notes! Different modes allow you to add variations, to manipulate melodies and to interact with The Octopoid Sequencer in real time. Ideal for live performances!
In Split Mode, all modules can play simultaneously or sequentially arranged in groups or even one after each other. This leads to more and longer melodic variations. Pitch all modules on the fly or trigger them using your external MIDI keyboard / DAW in Floating Pitch Mode.
Finally manage and backup your presets using the internal SD card. You can store up to 160 presets grouped in 10 banks, each with 16 slots.
Integrate The Octopoid Sequencer
As modular basic package: Integrate the Octopoid Sequencer into your modular setup and use the 8 x CV and 8 x Gate outputs to control your modules. The Octopoid Sequencer is designed according to the Eurorack standard and can be integrated into your own modular Eurorack case. The basic version has all functionalities and features.
Full MIDI support allows you to work with your favorite drum machine, synthesizer or DAW. You can either use an external clock source via MIDI or the internal clock provided to operate The Octopoid Sequencer and other hardware / software instruments.
Use MIDI CC / Program Change to integrate The Octopoid Sequencer in live performances and to dynamically change presets.
Extensions: Add 8 arm modules to your modular base package to overview and control all channels simultaneously.
You don’t have or want a modular system? No problem! Add the DIY Case to the basic package + 8 Arm Modules and you are free and flexible…
Whether you’re a producer, live act, in the studio or on stage. The Octopoid Sequencer offers a wide range of possibilities to integrate it into your workflow. Barely there, it will inspire you …
