    +1 Or various ways in which conditionality and probability could interact within SEQS. The Stochas sequencer software has fun logic conditions that would great to emulate

    I'm pretty sure there's at least one other thread that's wishing for this, but I'm happy to glom on here as well, as I'm a huge supporter of this feature.

    This is referred to as A:B conditionality in some circles.
    There's a solid line between probability and conditionality. The blackbox offers probability right now - it's x% probable that a note will play.
    Conditionality is different from probability in that every time the sequence "play head" passes over a note/event - the play condition of the note is either true or false.

    In blackbox speak, I think it would boil down as follows
    a note or event only plays when it's condition is true.

    With A:B conditionality, A sets how many times the sequence plays before the note/event play condition is true. B sets how many times the sequence plays before the count is reset and starts over again. This cycle then repeats until you stop the sequencer.

    For example:
    With the setting 1:2, the note/event play condition is true the first time the sequence plays and then the third, the fifth, and so on.
    With the setting 2:2, the note/event play condition is true the second time the sequence plays and then the fourth, the sixth, and so on.
    With the setting 2:4, the note/event play condition is true the second time the sequence plays and then the sixth, the tenth, and so on.
    With the setting 4:7 the note/event play condition is true the fourth time the sequence plays and then the eleventh, the eighteenth, and so on.

    This could be super powerful with multiple active sequences of different lengths.
    I get confused with the difference between polyrhythm and polymeter... it's poly something!

  • Addition to the probability - repeatable variations

    One thing I really enjoy and use all the time on my Deluge in the probability is to set a repeatable probability.

    i.e.: 1 of 4 - this would mean it would play the 1st time out of every four. You would have options like 2 of 4..... then so on (then 2 of 2 and whatnot)

    This really allows (especially for drums) to create repeatable variations that make a 1 bar loop to sound like a 4 bar with the repeatable variations.

    Hope that make sense.
Working...
