Five12 has announced the release of Numerology 4, a major release of the modular step-sequencing environment for Mac OS X.

Five12 Numerology 4

In addition to numerous modernization and usability improvements, Numerology 4.0 adds several new features that expand it’s capabilities in two areas central to its workflow: hardware control & modulation.

In version 4.0, Numerology extends it’s highly-capable grid mapping for the Novation Launchpad to include support for the Ableton Push and Livid OHM RBG grid controllers. Users can easily setup Numerology 4 to use several grid controllers at once, opening up new options when working with longer sequences, or for simultaneously manipulating sequence patterns and sequence ‘control’ settings (rate, direction, key, offset, etc.). Numerology’s grid mapping has also been updated to support accidentals, per-step probability settings, and a mapping for Numerology’s virtual keyboard module.

Numerology 4’s expanded support for hardware controllers also includes new options for transport and mixing oriented controllers, and improved OSC support in Numerology Pro. With these additions, users can easily configure a hardware controller setup that allows them to spend as much time away from the computer as they want.

Extending Numerology’s already generous selection of options for modulating sequences is a new feature called Realtime Automation (RTA), which allow users to record and play looped automation moves up to 64 beats long. This feature is can be accessed by mapping a MIDI (or OSC in N4 Pro) controller to trigger RTA recording. Once triggered, RTA recording captures all parameter edits made by a hardware controller to internal automation buffers. RTA recording auto-stops after a set number of beats, then immediately plays back all automation moves.

Among other general workflow improvements, Numerology now includes a comprehensive multi-panel browser for managing module presets, exported stacks (which are a collection of connected modules), audio and MIDI files. Users can easily setup custom module and stack libraries of their own via drag-and-drop to the browser. The audio section of the browser includes a preview panel and an ‘auto play’ mode for very fast auditioning of audio samples.

Numerology 4 includes a much-improved built-in sampler. Based on Numerology’s previous DrumKit and SamplePlayer modules, the new SampleKit has an updated UI with a zoomable waveform display, a convenient outline-based layout, and proper support for multi-part patches. Also included with Numerology4 is an all-new set of demo projects, stacks, sound patches and samples. Though not large by modern standards, this new library is specifically designed to show off Numerology’s compositional flexibility, including pop and funk tunes, dance music, classic synthesizer tracks, and several excursions into the exploratory world of experimental and generative musics.

Numerology 4 can run either 32 or 64 bit as a standalone app, 64-bit in ReWire mode with a 64-bit ReWire host, or as any of three plugin types (VST, AU and AU MIDI Effect) with 32 and 64 bit hosts.

Numerology 4 also adds support for Apple’s latest Audio Unit variant, the AU MIDI Effect, which allows Numerology to run as a MIDI insert within an instrument channel in LogicX (Mac OS X 10.8.5 and later). Running in this mode provides trouble-free routing and sample accurate MIDI transmission within LogicX’s instrument tracks.

Other changes in Numerology 4

  • A new welcome dialog with an unlimited listing of ‘recent projects’.
  • Per-stack MIDI loop recorders with drag-n-drop export.
  • New quantization options for presets.
  • Auto-mapping for MIDI control over preset changes.
  • Preset-arrangement recording in the timeline.
  • Better zooming and transport locate behavior in the timeline.
  • Auto-Best-Fit chord selection in the Chord Sequencer.
  • Per-step probability control in all note-based sequencers.
  • Separate Key vs. Semitone Offset settings for pitched sequencers.
  • The DrumSeq module can support up to 16 tracks. (As always, users can add as many DrumSeqs as wanted)
  • Background auto-saving of projects.
  • Automatic checking for updates online.
  • Additions specific to Numerology 4 Pro include:
    • Unlimited Undo/Redo with a full history dialog.
    • Automatic plugin delay compensation.
    • User-configurable track delays for managing latency with external instruments.
    • Expanded options for OSC control.
    • Bonjour support for easy OSC setup.
    • OSC Support in Numerology’s AU & VST plugins.
    • A dedicated MIDI/OSC mappings dialog.

Numerology is available for purchase for $129 US (Standard Edition) / $199 USD (Pro). Upgrades from Numerology 3 are $39 USD until December 27th, $49 USD thereafter.

Five12 releases Numerology 3.1, updated Launchpad intergration + VST plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 22, 2011 - comment 0 comments

Five12 has announced version 3.1 of Numerology, the revolutionary sequencing environment for Mac.

Numerology 3.1 is a music creating environment that offers an innovative and exciting approach to electronic music composition based on modular step sequencing.

Employing discrete sequencing techniques, powerful signal processing, Audio Unit (AU) hosting, advanced signal routing, and unmatched modulation capabilities, Numerology seamlessly combines pure brute “in-studio” strength with agile “live performance” response and finesse for musicians, composers, sound designers, and sample artists.

Changes in Numerology v3.1

  • UPDATED LAUNCHPAD INTEGRATION – Version 3.1 of Numerology builds upon its ground-breaking integration for the Novation Launchpad by adding realtime pattern recording for three of its signature MIDI sequencing modules. The “MonoNote” and “PolyNote” sequencers have been tailored to provide live recording over a four octave array on the grid; while the “DrumSeq” sequencer can be controlled from a grid array that is divided into seven velocity levels across 8 drum tracks, including a row of pattern erase buttons. Numerology’s Launchpad mapping has also been extended to include its CV-based sequencing modules. This streamlined, zero-configuration connection between Numerology 3.1 and the Launchpad answers the call for a powerful hardware/software performance oriented solution.
  • NOW AS A VST PLUGIN – With the release of Numerology 3.1, it is now possible to run Numerology as a VST plugin in any Mac OS X host. The Numerology 3.1 VST allows users to greatly expand their compositional options with the added convenience of direct MIDI routing from the plugin to the host. Like the AU version, the Numerology VST includes over fifty modules for MIDI step sequencing, CV sequencing, MIDI and CV signal processing, sample-based synthesizers, and audio signal processing all contained in one plugin.

Numerology 3.1 is available in two editions: The Standard Edition ($129 USD), is for anyone that wants an economical step sequencing addition to their studio. The Pro version ($199 USD) offers a more advanced feature set, including multi-output support for hosted Audio Units, OSC support, custom scale quantization, and many other advanced signal processing modules.

Five12 Numerology 2

Five12 has released version 2.3 of Numerology, a modular music sequencing and audio plug-in environment for Mac OS X.

New in this release is extensive support for controlling Numerology from the Novation Launchpad. This feature provides direct hardware control over the five primary note-sequencing modules in Numerology, including the MonoNote, PolyNote, Drum Sequencer, Chord Sequencer and Matrix Sequencer. Numerology’s Launchpad support also includes modes for triggering presets and controlling the built-in audio mixer.

When controlling Numerology’s note-sequencer modules, the Launchpad can be used to access up to thirteen pages of parameters for each sequencer, including pitch values (up to 8 octaves), sequencer start and end settings, sequencer rate and direction, gate time, velocity, groove timing, random jump and several other parameters. By using the Launchpad’s multi-color LEDs, each page is kept visually unique and easy to use.

In addition to direct control over the sequencing modules, Numerology’s Launchpad mapping can be used to trigger pattern presets, adjust mixer channel volume, channel mute and auxiliary send levels.

Numerology is available to purchase for Mac OS X, priced at $119 USD.
