xoxos releases Period Seq
xoxos has released Period Seq, a MIDI VST instrument for Windows PC.
Period Seq can generate nonrepeating or complex, structured feeling sequences automatically, or with gui elements geared towards live tweaking.
Period Seq features
- Sequencer uses four counters with the following parameters:
- Offset: delays output by the specified number of counts.
- Period: the number of counts incremented between generated sequence events.
- Count: the number of generated sequence events output after counter is reset.
- Sequences can be made more interesting with the following methods:
- Each counter can be driven by either of two separate clock sources.
- Each counter can be reset at one of four different reset rates.
- Counters can also be reset by higher-numbered counters.
- Counter parameters can be modulated by host-synced LFOs.
- LFOs are also assigned to reset rates and have seven different options for s&h.
Period Seq is included with all xoxos licenses, and can currently be download for free from the xoxos website (it says for 24 hours, so hurry up and get it).
