Sequencer 1 Now Available...

by Chris Randall
 



As the title says. We're "soft-launching" Sequencer 1 today, shipping on Friday. We got the first few units in the office today, and we're going to sell this little batch direct before we stock the retailers.

If you hit up the AD store, you can get a load of the feature list in the shipping v1.0 software. There is a fairly long list of feature additions that will be rolled in over the next couple months. The v1.1 version of the software, which isn't feature-complete or tested yet, has some ludicrously face-melting features that will essentially make this sequencer untouchable. Other than little stuff we've already mentioned, there are two marquee updates in v1.1 that will basically ruin all. I'm loath to talk about them at this point, as we haven't verified their stability yet, but... wow. Even I was amazed when Adam sprung this shit on me.

In any case, Sequencer 1 is, and will be for some time, our flagship product. We basically bet the entire company on this thing, and it needs to do well. If you live near one of our retailers you'll be able to check it out in person as we stock them. The manual will be up in the store by Friday, but honestly, it's pretty self-evident for the most part. If you're familiar with Elektron products, this will be a walk in the park for you.

If you have any questions about functionality or any of the features mentioned on the AD site, here's the place to bring it up.

Okay, yeah, I caved in to peer pressure and clicked the boobs button, even though it was a self-congratulatory guesture.

Anyway, thanks, everyone, for the congrats. Many thanks to the brave souls who forked over their money even before we managed to draft a proper manual. I intend to kick out revised drafts over the coming week, but, as CR said, feel free to ask questions here.

Here's a question:

Say I write a 16 note sequence and want to extend the length of the sequence to 32. I basically want to duplicate the first 16 to the next 16 in the same sequence so I can start building the variation from the initial 16 notes. I tried copying from measure 1 and then flipping the sequence to measure 2 and pasting, but didn't seem to work as I thought it would? It's also possible I did it wrong...

@rollmottle: Good news: you're not doing anything wrong. Bad news: it won't do what you want it to do. Copy & paste copies _all_ of the pattern info, including the length of the pattern, so copying and pasting back to the same pattern produces no change, regardless of which measure you might be looking at.

However, what you describe would indeed be a nice thing to be able to do. We'll think about a graceful way to add it.

@rollmottle: Hid that last comment. This isn't the place for issues like that, which require a lot of back and forth; write me at info @ audiodamage.com and we'll sort it out.
