Sequencing with the Novation Drumstation

October 29, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

dyLAB0303 has treated us with a couple of nice demos using Novation Drumstation

Using the live clips follow actions each clip goes to the next clip at each 16th.
This is based on the Tom Cosm video where he demonstrated something similiar,
The midi out from each clip is routed to the novation drum station drum rack I have set up and then audio comes in from the drum rack.
I have only set up a few step length permutations , with a launch pad or similar you could set up 7 launch permutations and stop for each channel and have a wicked little beatbox app

I extended my follow action sequencer into a series of different length slots, starting off with the 4 then 2 then 1 for the 4/4 style clips, then added 3, 5 and 6 as well as 8 steps.
These sequences can be triggered to experiment with interesting poly rythms using ableton and any drum rack. In this instance I’m sending the midi to my novation drum station.

Add something like a novation launchpad to start the different length clips and you have yourself a world of fun.
