I have always wanted a modular style analog sequencer in software form. There have been a few tries at this by various developers but none have really captured the essence of the real thing. The latest to take a stab at it is Orwell Digital. They have just released the OR-1m Step Sequencer and it looks very feature full. Just last weekend in German I was recording two female vocalists on my laptop. They wanted proper EBM backing tracks and this would have been extremely useful to create the basslines. There is an intro price of about $25 so I’m going to give it a try this weekend. Let me know if you have given the OR-1m a try and what you think of it.
“The OR-1m delivers the performance and flexibility expected from a pro-level step sequencer, while introducing several innovative features in terms of realtime modulation shaping and controlled randomness. At its most basic, the OR-1m is a standalone sixteen-step sequencer with per-step controls for note pitch, duration and velocity. In addition, each step features four knobs for generating MIDI continuous controller data of the user’s choosing.” – orwelldigital.com
