Droplets is a Max For Live counter based note sequencer inspired by the excellent Meadowphysics patch/eurorack module from monome. Droplets is my attempt at repurposing a few of the ideas presented in Meadowphysics for use without a grid, while still trying to maintain an interface that invites experimentation and interaction.
Droplets is made up of four note events, each called a droplet. A droplet is dropped from a certain height, and when it reaches the ground that droplet is triggered. Each droplet is composed of a base pitch, velocity, duration and trigger probability. A droplet drops at its own clock rate (relative to Live’s tempo), and features an interval offset list processing section that enables each droplet to create a melody or chord centered on the base pitch. A single instance of Droplets can output four independent melodic sequences simultaneously.
A droplet’s height can be subject to one of four rules when that droplet is triggered (increment, decrement, positive random offset, negative random offset).
Outgoing notes can have their pitch quantized to a variety of scales. Each droplet can also be set to transpose its base pitch by incoming MIDI notes.
