4-channel sequencer inspired by Oliver Wittchow’s nanoloop software.
edit: damn, instagram preview is broken. I’ll make a proper youtube video at some point.
I put this together over the past few days as my first norns/lua project. It’s mostly just a proof of concept / an exercise to learn the environment, but it’s gone further than I expected, so I decided to put it out there.
It works slightly differently to nanoloop. Some differences:
- BPM isn’t saved per pattern
- When changing length, patterns aren’t reset to where they mathematically should be (nanoloop users will understand)
- Currently plays notes only, and at 16th note length. I’ll probably implement velocity, length, and a few assignable CCs.
- No half/quarter/eighth-speed patterns. Again, something I’ll implement in the future.
- A lot more, probably.
Some things I’d like to implement:
- Gamepad support
- MIDI input
- Melody generators (like the ones in Zaquencer)
- MIDI sync (currently it only outputs notes)
Nothing, really, but the internal sound (PolyPerc) is just the default parameters, so it’s better with an external MIDI device.
See here. I’m hoping it’s pretty self-explanatory, as the on-screen text updates live to show encoder/key functions.
