Sugar Bytes has announced the release of a modular system which gravitates around the creation of MIDI.

Comprising 20 modules inspired by classic integrated circuits and today’s computer features, a clever voice to synth assignment, 12 patch scenes and a quad VST/Synth/MIDI Interface, Nest allows you to build up complex musical organisms, arpeggiators or intelligent sequencers.

Nest is a modular sequencer. It offers all kinds of modules to generate and process triggers and numbers. You can build highly complex sequencing environments with the aim to produce music with a life of its own.

Nest is equipped with resemblings of classical, transistor based integrated circuits like Shift Registers or Multiplexers, plus programming tools like the if/else and math modules. Also a writable Sequencer and flexible Arpeggiator are onboard, to make life easy when needed.

A clever voice assignment distributes the 8 possible MIDI voices to up to 4 different sound generators like VSTs, internal Synths and Drums or MIDI channels. This can make Nest not only fun when hosting your favorite plugins, you can also use it to drive your hardware park.
