Nina Richards & Zoë Blade of Transistor Sounds Labs have introduced Stepper Acid – a digitally-controlled 16-step sequencer for Eurorack modular synthesizers.
They say it is “Designed by and for musicians, Stepper Acid was born out of our need for a modern step-sequencer.”
Here’s a video intro:
Here’s an extended demo:
- 16-step sequencer, with adjustable pattern length
- Adjustable analogue slide
- Song mode for pattern chaining
- Stores up to 40 patterns
- Detach mode for playing one pattern while entering another
- 0-5V range CV (5 octaves)
- Gate and accent output. 5V or 12V selectable
- Variable swing function
- Dual microcontroller design
- Adjustable clock sync input and output. Includes: 24PPQN (Sync24), 48PPQN, 96PPQN and 4PPQN (one note per pulse
Stepper Acid is available for £295.00. See the Transistor Sounds Lab site for details.

I was lucky enough to see a demo of this over the Summer. It’s a great module, there aren’t many step sequencers as good as this out there. Best of luck with the release!
It’s the elektron sequencer in eurorack format… DROOL!!!!!
How is this like the Elektron?
Seems a lot closer to the 303 or FR Mobius…
Because elektron copied the 303
The Audio Damage Sequencer 1 is the Elektron sequencer in Eurorack format. This is most definitely the 303 sequencer.
Elektron’s sequencers are like halfway between a 303 sequencer and an analog sequencer (due to parameter-locking, hold a step and turn a knob). As far as hardware sequencers go, they’re not all that similar.
303 style programming
Niow if it only was stand alone and had MIDI.
its up to you to make it midi-able with other modules
a really nice module
hope to find the space/cash for one in the new year
and Ceephax Acid Crew for LIFE!
Brilliant. Like a cross between the acidlab euro sequencer and the metropolis. Im pleased to see some ladies in the biz too. Keep it up 🙂
actually they are not ladies, but this sequencer is cool
