"From Social Entropy:
Engine is a powerful multitrack step sequencer with 8 polyphonic tracks for recording both melodic and percussion patterns.
Pattern chaining, snapshots and a song mode help move your ideas from simple loops to completed songs.
The six performance knobs can be used to control external devices or the built-in performance effects system, which includes velocity and gate offsets and ratcheting.
Engine includes comprehensive editing features to fine tune your performance, with rotation, cut/copy/paste for both patterns and individual steps.
STRUCTURE 8 Polyphonic Tracks Each of the eight tracks can be programmed with individual time settings for scale, length, shuffle and skipped steps. This allows for experimenting with polymeters and polyrhythms.
Synth type patterns can record and play up to four notes of polyphony, while drum type patterns have sixteen notes of polyphony.
512 Patterns Each track has 4 banks of 16 patterns, for a total of 512 patterns.
A pattern can be up to 64 steps in length, and patterns can be chained together for even longer passages, up to 1024 steps!
128 Snapshots 64 snapshots allow you to store settings across all eight tracks for quick recall.
This includes things like selected patterns and pattern chains, track mutes, transpose and individual drum mutes. Snapshots make it easy to construct songs on the fly.
32 Songs Entire performances can be performed using the 32 songs. Songs are created as a sequence of snapshots that can be programmed or recorded in realtime.
6 Control Knobs The 6 knobs can be used to send MIDI control messages or control voltages with the optional CV expansion. This makes Engine the perfect studio centerpiece.

WORKFLOW Realtime, Grid and Step Recording With three types of recording, you can choose the right method for your workflow, and you can switch between them any time.

Grid recording gives you the traditional drum machine type programming interface, which works great for synth lines also.

Realtime recording lets you play notes in via the mini-keyboard or using MIDI controllers, great for capturing a live performance.

Step recording moves automatically from step to step as you enter note events. This is great for generating unexpected grooves."
