Senode Graphical Music Sequencer (Sneak Preview)


Developer Sebastian Arnold today introduced Senode – a new node-based graphic music sequencer.

The basic idea of Senode is to draw your entire composition as a cyclic graph of nodes and edges. Each node can generate events, such as notes, chords, effects, or any other MIDI or OSC message.

You can now use any incoming signal or a clock to change the current position of ‘tokens’ around the graph.

There are many interaction options that let you decide the generation, direction, transformation and synchronization of the tokens. At all times, your graphical score is perfectly readable. This makes this sequencer the perfect tool for interactive performance of pre-written and generative music.
