New intellijel Steppy 3U 4-Track 64-Step Programmable Gate Sequencer

1. Tap Recording With Steppy 3U
Rhythms can be played live in Steppy's Tap Recording Mode. When active you can finger drum the four tracks and delete steps from the sequence.
2. Rhythmic Variations From Single Step Patterns With Steppy 3U
Steppy provides a number of methods to add interesting variations to even the simplest patterns. In this video each track is sending a single step pattern, but with per track clock division, random ratcheting, and probability settings, a huge range of rhythms can quickly and easily be achieved.
3. Producing and Perusing Patterns With Steppy 3U
Steppy has a number of quick and easy shortcuts to create patterns, but can also store up to 8 patterns. Steppy will automatically reload the last saved or loaded pattern the next time it powers up. Saved patterns are great for creating basic rhythms to use as departure points, or to set up the structure of a song or live set in advance.

"Steppy is a 4-track programmable gate sequencer with eight internal memory slots, external clocking, numerous tweakable parameters, and a performance-first design aesthetic.

Each track features numerous independent parameters that govern its playback independently of the other tracks. Specifically:

Each track has its own length, which can range from 1-step to 64-steps, allowing for polyrhythms, fills, or constantly evolving gate interactions between tracks.
Each track has its own gate length, which ranges from very short to very long, with tied gates possible at the extreme setting.
Each track has its own clock divider, allowing patterns to play out over completely different periods of time.
Each track has its own swing setting, which offsets the timing of every other step.
Each track has its own delay setting, which offsets the timing of every step.
Each track has its own probability control, which sets the likelihood that each programmed gate will fire when called upon by the pattern.
Each track can be shifted (or ‘rotated’) forward or backward by a number of steps. So if you’ve created a pattern that ‘feels’ like it has its downbeat on step 3, you can shift that pattern two steps to the left, so that the downbeat sits on step 1.
Tracks can be programmed by entering active steps on the grid or tapped in live as the sequence is moving. Tracks can be selected and modified in real time as the sequence plays. A select button allows you to directly access each track (and each page of 16 steps within that track) directly through Steppy’s intuitive multifunction buttons array.

Tracks can be individually muted and unmuted, and a special performance mode (called “Loopy”) enables you to touch any two gate steps and instantly create a performance that loops between those steps.

Track patterns can be cleared without clearing its playback parameters, and all track patterns (along with their individual playback and performance parameters) can be saved as a preset to one of eight internal memory slots.

Also available in 1U."
