Sonicbytes ERA2

ERA is a professional multipurpose Midi-Stepsequencer / Arpeggiator-Plugin. It controls up to 12 instruments or effects in a very dynamic way. All in realtime and controllable via Midi. Its unique pattern-variation approach, supporting different views on one pattern, provides an outstanding musical inspiration and expression.

ERA2 provides many new features like the playlist-editor. The restyled GUI and numerous enhancements make dynamic composing easier. A new demo-version is also available.
