New company, Copper Traces, have released their first eurorack module and it looks like an interesting one. Seek is a 64 step CV/Gate sequencer.
Copper Traces are a new eurorack synth company and have just announced (and released) their first eurorack synth module in the form of Seek, a CV/gate sequencer.
Here's what you need to know about this lovely sequence generating module...
Seek is a 64 step CV/gate sequencer with legato and a multipurpose accent output in 12hp. It was inspired by the simplicity of the SH-101's sequencer with many updates and additions for a more versatile workflow both live and in the studio. It also has plenty of Euro friendly randomness and cross patching options to either keep a static sequence fresh or to make completely generative sequences.
- Any sequence length up to 64 steps
- Five octave range
- Separate gate and accent outputs with per step legato, accent and rest
- Six patterns: Forward, Reverse, Forward-Reverse, Ping-Pong, Random, Brownian
- Multipurpose reset input: Reset, Run/ Stop, One shot, Play Direction, Randomness, Slip-Forward, Slip-Back, Jump to a Random Step
- Internal clock capable of 5 to 250 bpm. The accent output can be set up to output the clock.
- Complex shuffle and gate length patterns are preserved when using an external clock.
- 12 save locations save all parameters for easy recall of complex patches during a live performance
- Cue recalls new scenes only after the current sequence finishes. Use the keyboard to quickly select new scenes while keeping everything in time
- Random algorithms allow for static or evolving randomness that create subtle or extreme note variations. A separate probability parameter controls how often the random algorithm is applied.
- Random sequence generator creates new sequences with one button press
- Quantizer can be set to constrain outgoing notes to any arbitrary scale chosen using the keyboard
- Transpose from -1 to +2 octaves and by any number of semitones as chosen with the keyboard
- Tile function allows for duplication of a section of the sequence for easy multiple bar variations
- Clock divider divides by any power of two from /1 to /64
