It's been pretty quiet around here. Have AD moved onto newer and greater things? waah


I apologize for my protracted silence. Blame it on an unfortunate combination of my forgetfulness and, yes, being busy with other things. It's a truism that Audio Damage is a tiny company consisting of two people. It's our main job and what we depend on to keep a roof over our respective heads and food in the cat bowls, so at times we necessarily have to focus our attention on the project(s) which we think will result in bolstering our revenue.

Here's a true story which is a bit of a digression but perhaps amusing, or at least illustrative. When we met in Portland for the Sync 02 event, we talked for quite awhile about Sequencer 1. (Bear in mind that we live in two different parts of the country and hence see each other in person an average of once every three years.) There was a specific discussion about an issue related to something that was brought up here. As he often does, Chris came up with an elegant solution--one which both worked well from the user's perspective and didn't appear particularly difficult to code. I was so pleased with it that I wanted to start working on the next firmware update ASAP.

Then, after the show, we returned to our respective homes. We got wrapped up in other stuff (including the usual post-show catch-up and decompression) and some time went by. I didn't find time to start on the update. More time went by, and one day I suddenly remembered that discussion in Portland. However, I could not remember what exactly the issue was, and what solution we'd come up with. I drew a total blank.

So, I pinged Chris, since generally his memory is better than mine. He drew the same blank. He could also remember the discussion, but he also could not recall the specific issue or its solution. Ironically, this discussion happened during one of the rare times that we had a face-to-face conversation. Had it happened in our usual chats, we'd have an electronic record of it and I could just scroll back a ways and find it. But since it happened in person, and since it seemed so blindingly obvious at the time, nobody wrote it down.

I think I've figured out the particular issue under discussion, but neither of us is sure of the solution. It's gone.

Anyway, there will be another Seq 1 update in the future, but exactly when I won't attempt to forecast. Many thanks to all of the people who have jumped in here to answer questions.

Update:

It happens only now and then after having switched (via stop) from EXT sync to INT and back to EXT. Only with one particular pattern which is 64 steps long and plays in rnd0d mode.


Off the top of my head, my best guess on this is that there's a problem with the detection of the end of the pattern when the pattern is in rndOdd mode and has 64 steps. Hence it doesn't switch patterns when you expect because it doesn't think it has yet reached the end of the pattern. The end-of-pattern logic is a little odd for the random modes, so it wouldn't entirely surprise me if there was a flaw there. It may or may not have anything to do with INT/EXT syncing, i.e. while it may seem to be related to that, since you're observing the behavior of a system which both involves random numbers and has a coding flaw, you may be making an association which doesn't actually exist. But maybe it does; I'll bear that in mind when I attempt to fix it.

Now I wish you hadn't even told us that story Adam! very frustrating

I miss that great feature that I don't even know what was but that now I'll never have waah

Oh well, happy to say I use Seq 1 in every patch and it does what I want it to do, and then some.

Hooraay! It's peanut butter jelly time!
DDJ
It's a great day!

I too am using the SEQ1 as my main sequencer and use it (and it's amazing LFO's) in most patches.
phutureboy
Hey Adam, thanks for sharing this anecdote but from personal experience I would say if it was a meaningful new feature or bug correction don't worry, it will come back to your memory at some point for sure...
Anything to do with reset gate/trigger as per my last post by any chance ?

Hey Seq 1 gang - I'm having an issue where the CV1 and CV2 input settings are making changes to my sequences, however I don't have anything plugged into the CV 1 /2 Inputs. Thoughts?

I have had some quirky behavior but never this issue. Is it intermittent or all the time? Are the 'changes' you hear consistent with what CV1 and CV2 are set to? Do you see any improvement after a hard restart?

It's all the time, unless I turn them off, and it is consistent with what the CV1/2 are set to. I also just updated the firmware to 1.5 and it's still giving me the same issue. It's like I have cables plugged into CV1/2 IN, but I don't!

Any news of a seperate module only featuring the seq1 lfos?

I should note that I've used my Seq 1 for quite some time now without this being an issue, so I feel like this might be an odd issue (vs something fixable via a settings change).

I had not heard of this before, but I'd certainly be interested as I make use of the AD Seq1 LFOs in most patches, even when I'm not using the sequencer.

While on the subject of LFOs.... Is there any way to set an LFO to run globally instead of per pattern? I just read through the manual again, and I don't see it mentioned. I'd love to be able to string together some long patterns and have the LFOs operate in a continuous fashion. I have not tested this yet, but I assume that when a pattern change occurs, that the LFOs are reset.

I recently picked up a Batumi and now have a scope, so I'm hoping I can achieve something like this w/o using the Seq1 LFOs, but there is a comfort and predictability in just quickly setting a shape, amplitude and length and knowing it is going to be right on the money first time through...

Just borrowed this from a friend to try out, as I've just started looking into a more sophisticated sequencer for my system. So far, it's very, very easy to navigate.

One question I have is whether a sequence can start on any other step than 1 (not counting the direction options) - more specifically wondering if I can offset the starting step. My sense is that it can't from what I've read in the manual and from watching all of Divkid's videos on it. I like the ability to have, for example, a 12-step pattern, and be able to shift from playing steps 1-12 to 3-14, or 6-18 during a performance, something that a Kilpatrick K2579 or MengQi Voltage Memory could do quite handily. It's also the reason I like the SQ-1, for turning active steps on and off on the fly and offsetting smaller sequences that way.

"Step position" is one of the destinations for the CV inputs.

Hi,
Been using the Seq1 for a bit now, excellent all around sequencer. Driving it with an ALM Pamelas New Workout, the only thing right now is that the measure led on the Seq1 does not always reset, the pattern and the measure indicator in the main window will show the correct step / measure change, but the measure led will be off by a step or two. If stop PNW, hit start then stop on the Seq1 and then start from the PNW the measure led will be in sync, it's a small bit I know, but distracting, especially when I'm trying to track down timing problems. Can anyone confirm this with their Seq1. Appreciated.
Thanks

I was also baffled, but then the manual says the bar LED lights up every FOURTH beat. NOT every first beat. As I understand this behavior cannot be changed.

I just had to get used to it.

I am sending the reset gate correctly.

Yesman
Yes,
I had seen that, but if I am running the Seq1 stand alone using the panel start/stop buttons the measure LED lights on the first step, then every fourth from there (i.e. 1, 5, 9, 13......). Running as a slave it responds as I noted previously. So, which is it and why does it respond differently.
Always Appreciated,
B-

I have seen people selling the Seq 1 as (Discontinued). Is this correct? I can't seem to find any evidence anywhere, so I thought I would ask.
tonymasiello
There was another thread on here where Chris Randall stated that he was going to stop development of Eurorack, at least for the near term, to focus on Audio Damage's plug-in business. All of the Euro products on the company website also show as sold out, so 'discontinued' seems accurate. I believe there are still new Seq 1's in stock at some of the major retailers.

I did not see that, thank you for the update.

One question about the Sequencer 1:

Can i enter notes and gates to the sequence by manual-playing the included mini keyboard?


or using the CV inputs to enter the notes and gates using an external keyboard or anything else etc?
tonymasiello
To your first question... kind of... You could 'play' the notes with one hand, but the other hand would need to select the step button. You also need button presses to switch octaves and move beyond sixteen steps.

The second question is a flat, No!

It was my first sequencer and I liked that it could save and that it could do long sequences. It is not really very playable in real time, which is a quality I've grown to appreciate.

Yes you can do #1 without having to hold each step...

“If you hold the Alt button down when you press and release a Note button, Sequencer 1 will automatically advance the current step. In other words, press and hold the Alt button while tapping the Note buttons to set the notes for a series of steps, without having to press and hold each Step button to select each step. When operating this way, the Stepping Mode of the pattern is ignored; the current step just advances from left to right as you press the Note buttons. Also, steps whose Gate is turned off are skipped. The idea is that you can enter the rhythm of the pattern by first turning on the Gates on the appropriate steps, then experiment with different melodies by tapping in notes. ”
tonymasiello
Always something to learn... Thanks for correcting my bad info!
FatRocky
it was just an idea , if the firmware could be upgraded so that one could just play the sequence and allow to enter notes and gates either by the mini keyboard or external input ( everything being placed according to the internal sequence grid )... Then using the SEQ1 modulation possibilities to mess up with it.
