sequencer max/msp

    I'm making a sequencer and have a few questions, I've created a piano 16 step sequencer, I want to have 4 sequencers with 1 being a drum sequencer, piano sequencer, violin sequencer and another instrument. I'd also like a reset button to reset the sequencer to its original settings. I've tried to change the duration of each of the 16 notes in the sequencer but it doesn't seem to be working. I'd also like to incorporate each of the objects on the right hand side of my patch into the sequencer using a different grid for each instrument and having preset options for each instrument but I'm not sure how to do this. I'd also like to add effects options eg. reverb etc for each instrument sequencer but have been struggling to get this to work. If anyone has any advice i'd really appreciate it! Thanks

      a simple midi sequencer needn't be more than this:
      - the preset object works directly with this this, and each multislider can have its own preset object (check the help file of [preset] for that)
      It seems like you're trying to organize data, and relatively large amounts of it, using individual objects. Typically you find yourself making a ton of inlets and pulling a ton of wires around.
      When you see yourself doing that, then I'd advise you to stop and re-examine the situation, since there are often much simpler ways of handling it.
      Right now you're working in straight midi with some sort of midi note generator going on. These often have controls to allow you to apply reverb. I believe it's midi cc# 91, and you can transmit these using ctlout.
