It's time for a few live performances with just me and pre recorded material. I am designing a big patch in max/msp which will allow me to use 7 samplers with similar features.
All the samplers will be driven from the main, controlling sequencers and presets. The patching is not really given me any problems thusfar, I've designed the samplers and kept cpu usage low so I have a lot of freedom for the sequencers.

I want complexity, but avoid the use of advanced algorithms at the same time. My plan for approach is making a list of possible sequencers and create a subpatch for each one, all running on a single clock, I could then use them simultaneous, change and alter them realtime, while triggering the samplers and resampling the output (for instance). Keeping things simple, but effective.

So far, so good. I now reached a point where the list of sequencers need to grow and I lost creativity after stepsequencers (12, 16, 20 and 105 step). I could think of many more, but I would love to read some other people's thoughts, suggestions and experiences on sequencing methods that differ from the popular grid based.

Like sequencers skipping steps, or running forward and backward, or more like a ring of lfos fm-ing each other (maybe using s&hs to get it into a fixed time frame)?

The control sequencer as present in the Clavia G2 can do some nice stuff, it's actually more like a lookup table, it sequences in the traditional sense when you drive it with a saw lfo.

...you might take a look at the microkorg arpeggiator.

you set the number of steps in the arpeggio (7 or 5 is always good).
you set which of the steps are played and which are rests
playing a number of notes on the keyboard will fill the steps, and by picking whacky combinations (7 steps, 3 turned on, 5 notes) will yeild audio fun Smile

i'm not explaining it very well, but i'm sure you can get your mitts on a microkorg to play around with somewhere.

Be sure to have look at the Klee sequencer: http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-12940.html and http://electro-music.com/forum/phpbb-files/know_the_klee_draft2_671.pdf of course.

Also look at http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-3125.html

It might help to have the G2 demo software for the latter, can be found at : http://www.clavia.se/downloads/default.asp?filter=nord%20modular%20G2

Fantastic replies! Thank you so much for the links to previous discussion (EDIT: searching the site on "sequencing" is a lot to read through!). the arpeggio approach is one I completely overlooked, I am already brewing on it. Very Happy

Please keep this information coming.
