Wusik has introduced Wusik SQ200, a virtual “hardware” sequencer that features VST/AU hosting for instrument and effects plugins.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
The idea behind this project is to have a sequencer that works just like old hardware sequencers. With little mouse usage, you get to use keyboard shortcuts for everything. You can still use the mouse in place of keyboard usage, but using the keyboard makes things go much faster.
With time I plan to release an open source Arduino based hardware remote that will feature the same interface but in real life. This will connect to a computer and allow you to use Wusik SQ200 just like a real hardware sequencer.
Initially I will support PC Windows and MAC OSX, but with time Linux and other types of platforms may be implemented. Such as Raspberry PI, Android and more. This will all be based on the demand of the product.
Pricing and Availability
Wusik SQ200 is currently in beta, but is available for US $99.95. A demo version is planned. See the Wusik site for details.
