This is a quick demo of the Endeavor, Illumiringer, and APC2600 (with a little reverb sometimes). Enjoy!
Dr Blankenstein’s “Endeavour Space Line Generator” Analog Synth / Sequencer w/ Theremin Controls
Back from a long video uploading break with a new prototype demo… and many more to follow. What we have here is a 10 step analog sequencer, running a square wave oscillator. Each step of the bass line can be tuned via the 10 main sequence knobs. This unit is intended as a stand alone sound creation device, at has NO sync out or in… hence why it should be considered a “space line generator” Oh, and for added fun.. there is an ILLUMIRINGER put on the end of the signal chain for epic tweaking!
All of this is controlled via the 3 sections at the top of the unit… each section has the option to be either controlled via a knob, light sensor or pair of touch points (at the bottom of the unit.) First, we have the “SPEED” which will control the tempo of the sequence. Next, there is the “PITCH” controls.. and finally the “FILTER” which is tied into the effects section. The filter fx can be turned on and off via the switch to the left of the Knob / Sensor control switch on the right most control section.
The touch points are set up in pairs… from left to right… 1st Speed, 2nd Pitch, 3rd Voltage Drain, 4th Effect. They can be used in pairs OR in different configuration to get some really exciting expression out of the piece.
The light sensors on this thing are SICK! Massive range… super sensitive! So many way to jam on them… I couldn’t include all of them in the video there were SO MANY… so use your imagination.
Unit can be turned on via a mission impossible style key start… or big red momentary button. 9v Power adapter power for maximum juice’ness (this thing is a bit of a beast). This is a solid PCB design, not perf board etc… so I would expect to see a few of these popping up on the website / eBay in coming days.
SECTOR – stochastic sample slice sequencer, for iPad.
Maintain pitch while changing bpm.
Choose probability (as is) OR a definite 1 in X jump OR warp.
Ability to rotate the ‘wave form ring’ to match the slots better.
Import individual samples into each slot.
Set custom lengths for each slot (perhaps by merging slots): – select when the ‘jump’ would take place. – enable polyphony or x-fade to continue the sound after the ‘jump’
Be a midi controller.
The game-changing tool for creative and effective music production is now available on the App Store: scatter 14 intelligent effects across a sequencer matrix and create unheard-of sound patterns and cheeky loop collages.
A playful workflow, refined algorithms and carefully parameterised effects lead to outstanding results – fast! The effects, each exceeding conventional wisdom, cover a wide spectrum from classy standards to scandalising splatter sprees.

NAMM 2014: Moon Modular Sequencers Guided tour of the large cabinet and sequencer
The Zilion is a very compact masterclock and sequencer with a weird sliding data entry control. It is still in the prototype stadium probably coming still this year from production. Jered Flickinger as the inventor is explaining the idea and the possibilities of the product in this video giving examples of what to do with it on the fly.
The BeatStep is much more than a pad controller–it’s a groove sequencer that features analog CV-gate as well as MIDI out. We saw one driving a vintage Oberheim SEM and grooving hard!
Arturia’s Beatstep offers a new degree of functionality and performance for a portable pad controller. BeatStep is highly versatile, capable of triggering clips in such applications as Ableton Live, playing drums in conjunction with such applications as BFD or EZDrummer.
But BeatStep is also a 16-step analog sequencer for creating all kinds of musical phrases to be sent to analog synthesizers, MIDI drum machines, MIDI keyboard devices, or computer programs.
Its vast connectivity allows you to connect the BeatStep to a computer or iPAD using USB, a drum module using MIDI or an analog synthesizer equipped with CV/GATE.
FM get a video demo of a new USB hardware step sequencer with CV and MIDI. Plus, see an update to the Spark software.
This machine, normally associated with beats, can transmit MIDI notes from each of the drum triggers. I tuned the first seven triggers to the Eb scale, with the further three notes on the lower octave.
The accent control functions in the same way, allowing you to vary it`s relative level.
Second half of the video has the synth output going into the ER-1, allowing the use of `Motion Sequence` and `Tempo Delay` effects.
The ARP 1601 sequencer controls VCO pitch

The Doepfer Dark Energy provides some LFO action.
All sounds are live, unprocessed and from the ARP only.
