Overview

Gate Nouveau is a gate sequencer. It produces high/low signals in 64 steps for up to 16 tracks. Each step can be configured with a variable gate width. Steps can be tied together for multiple step long gate signals. In addition, each track can be set with a custom division, giving quite a lot of control over high/low gate signals.

All 64 steps of all 16 tracks can be snapshot into a single pattern. Gate Nouveau contains 16 patterns. Clicking to a new pattern while playing quantizes changing the pattern in beat with the sequence. A "chain mode" can be enabled allowing designing an entire sequence of patterns, creating an almost "song mode" type feature that's quite powerful.

Gate Nouveau offers a hardware-like experience with an LCD used primarily for configuration. This LCD allows quite a high degree of control over each track or configuring preferences for the sequencer as a whole. For example, the LCD allows configuration such as the time signature, pattern quantization duration, MIDI mapping modes, and even if the sequencer should include triplet divisions or not.

Gate Nouveau can be simple to use, but there is quite a lot of power "under the hood". To make sure you get the most out of the module, a complete training course (below) is included at no cost.

Change Log

Jul 21, 2021 - Build #90

  • Bug: Fixed an issue where presets created with the module before Build 78 would not load

Jul 19, 2021 - Build #78

  • New: When "Run Input Mode" is set to "Trigger" a 2nd trigger now stops the sequencer
  • New: "Length on Random" setting (default: Apply) - able to ignore changing length on rand now
  • New: "Length on Evolve" setting (default: Ignore) - small chance to randomly change length on evovle
  • Bug: "offbeat" random algorithm now properly respects masking

Jul 03, 2021 - Build #67

  • Initial release
