Cycling ‘74 Starting Points
Thanks to the folks at Cycling’74 for commissioning this
patch for their starting point series. What an honor! The patch can be downloaded here.
Meta-sequencer starting point: After making a bunch of sequencer patches focused on performing with a sixteen-slider MIDI controller, I found myself tending to use only one or two at a time. Aiming towards more substantial pieces, I came up with this patch. The main principles are: ︎ to only use sliders to control the patch, and ︎ to create a meta-sequencer that can combine several mini-sequencers. One result I love is that each slider controls many parameters, pairing every intentional change with something unexpected. I’ve been playing with a handful of pieces using this as a template. Hopefully it can be a useful starting point for you!
