Monoplugs has released version 2.0 of its B-Step Sequencer, which is now also available for Mac AU, Android and Raspberry Pi.

Monoplugs B-Step Step Sequencer Chord Editor.

We kept the B-Step 1 base and built a lot of exciting stuff on top of that.

For the right groove in your set, we have added an advanced shuffle mode. Now you can add the shuffle modifications to every second 16th, 8th or 4th. You can modify the timing, velocity and duration of the notes in the shuffle grid.

To fill the pattern, you can use the Sequencer Ratcheting features (Step Repeats). This is ideal when you want to create drum rolls, arpeggios or experimental stuff.

Different measurements? Sure! You can reduce the pattern length down to 1/16th or increase the length by adding some Non-Linear Playback features.

Polyphony: control up to 4 synthesizers independently with one instance of B-Step. Just split it into 4 sequence groups and share the things you like between.

Scales? We have that covered also. You can fill the chords randomly with notes from scales.

B-Step for Windows, Mac, Linux & Raspberry Pi is available for purchase for £29.99 GBP. The Android version is £7.87, the iOS version £11.99 GBP.
