Loomer has released version 1.2.3 of Sequent, a semi-modular sequenced beat looper multi effect for Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Sequent is a step-sequenced multi-effect processor with a flexible modular effects routing system, an incredibly powerful beat looper, twenty-three parameter sequencers, and a wealth of randomization options. Sequent is the ideal tool for mangling audio on stage or in the studio.

Changes in Sequent v1.2.3

  • Native 64-bit support for Linux VST plug-ins and Standalone application formats.
  • Integrated undo and redo, with unlimited history size.
  • Master Sequencer, to arrange effects along a time-line.
  • Random pattern generation functions.
  • Partial preset support for Routing configurations.
  • Thru switch for Delay Module, which if enabled allows the dry signal to be passed through when the delay effect is turned off.
  • Effects are now colour-coded for easy identification.
  • Category support in preset browser.
  • Windows VST 32-bit plug-ins and standalone applications no longer depend on additional runtime libraries. However, these libraries are still required – and installed – for the RTAS format plug-ins.
  • libjack is now weak-linked for standalone Linux. This means JACK is not required (but still recommended) for Linux users.
  • Windows RTAS plug-in is now installed to the correct location on 64-bit Windows operating systems.
  • MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
  • Fix for rare issue that stopped presets from loading in Linux Renoise when LADSPA plug-in support is enabled.
  • Fixed crash that could occur when connecting Effects in the Routing Window whilst simultaneously changing Presets via MIDI.
  • Fix for crash (on both Windows and Linux) that could occur when ‘space’ is pressed when confirming the overwrite preset dialog.
  • Presets without Patterns are now considerably smaller when saved to disc.
  • Improved rendering speed of Router graphics.
  • Reduced CPU usage when switching or editing patterns.
  • Preset Browser is now maximized to fill the entire plug-in window.
  • For Windows VST (32-bit and 64-bit), the preferences file can be placed alongside the DLL file to facilitate USB or portable installs.
  • Additional presets.
  • Various host compatibility fixes.
  • PDF manual is now printer-friendly.

Sequent is available to purchase for £49 GBP excl. VAT.
