Sequencer?

    I want to get started on a sequencer... has anyone made a basic one they want to share?

      could do, but building your own is simple tempo/metro into counter in sel for your basic drum sequencer very easy

      aye, sequencer building is really easy. much more than you think. you can easily find one on the forum, but it is really easy.
      also using [button] with indication of where you are up to in the sequence is also useful...

      for a 16 step sequencer id have tempo 120 to a counter 15 to a sel 15 each of the sel outputs would bang a buffer, is you use 3 buffers you could have kick snare and hat very easily :)

      Thanks for the tips guys! I quickly made a midi sequencer, quite fun. Next I want to trigger audio samples... Jagle, should I use an object in conjunction with buffer, or I could just use buffer?

      The [buffer~] object just holds the audio. You'll want to use something like [groove~] or [play~] to actually trigger the sounds. Have a look at the help files for both of them.

      There is a very good Max tutorial on how to make a sequencer. It is unfortunately very confusingly named and located under Data Tutorial 5: List Processing. It really is very simple though. Only takes a few minutes to make a sequencer.

      reading the tutorials and the similiar patches they recomend to look at are a great way to get into things

      Here's a simple matrix sequencer:

      Thanks for the sequencer! BPM2ms, was a external you made that you didn't include I'm guessing? It's a cool algorithm for the final 4 buttons... an interesting feature! I'm curious if you designed it for something specific in mind, or what?

      Okay so more general question. I've rigged up a sequencer using buffer~, play~ and line~. My problem is the samples are cut off by either the next step, or by a repeat of the same sample. I'm trying to see a simple way to avoid this. Any ideas?

      maybe using poly will get you around that problem?

      bpm-->msec can be done like this:
