monome.org has introduced white whale – a new Euro module that lets you use a monome grid controller as the interface to a grid-enabled live probabilistic step sequencer.
According to the developers, “white whale is the culmination of methods and experiments based on a decade of step sequencer design for the grid”.
Here’s a video demo of white whale in action: Continue reading
The SparkPunk Sequencer is a musical control voltage sequencer designed to control the DIY SparkPunk Sound Kit. But the sequencer kit is also designed to support connecting it to other control voltage hardware.
The SparkPunk Sequencer cycles among ten steps, reading the slider and switch for each, and producing corresponding analog voltages on the output pins. The kit offers many mod opportunities - like adjusting Sequence length by connecting solder pads together at the bottom right of the PCB, routing pins to make a one-shot sequence playback, even creating a tempo clock or influencing the analog signals of LEDs.
Here’s a video introduction to the SparkPunk Sequencer Kit: Continue reading
The ADDAC System ADDAC206 Switching Sequencer is a a Quad Channel Switcher, letting you sequence 4 inputs to 1 output or 1 input to 4 outputs, for both audio or voltage (AC/DC).
This series of videos introduces the Switching Sequencer and demonstrates its functionality in a variety of patches. Continue reading

This video, via Audio Damage, Inc, is a demo of the new Audio Damage Sequencer 1 for Eurorack modular synths, a new step sequencer, inspired by the Elektron Analog Four.
The video demonstrates Sequencer 1′s ability to drive Hz/V and S-Trig gear. Continue reading
This video captures a demo of the LegoTechno 2.0 Sliding Puzzle Sequencer. It’s built using littleBits Synth + Arduino + CV + NI Maschine + LEGO building pieces. Continue reading
The CV Graphic V2 is a prototype Eurorack synth module, created by Lysandre Follet, that is designed to allow graphical manipulation of control voltages.
The CV Graphic is built around an Atmega328 chip, a 128×128 OLED screen and two DACs.
According to Follet, “The main idea behind the module is to provide interaction between CVs and graphics, where graphics become a ‘virtual partner’ in the musical creative process.” Continue reading
Future Retro has announced the availability of Zillion, a new hardware sequencer, inspired by the rare Triadex Muse algorithmic sequencer.
The Zillion is a single track algorithmic MIDI sequencer based on the principles of the Triadex Muse. The Muse used counters and a shift register to generate more than a million musical melodies. The Zillion expands on these ideas to add more features and functionality, providing a ‘zillion possibilities’. Continue reading
