Running Order offers 2 tracks of trigger sequencing and clock generation with rolling repeats, tuplets and Euclidean rhythms in a compact 6HP Eurorack module.
Operation is really simple. You have a Step button and a Rest button and you hit the combination of buttons to match the pattern you’re trying to generate. No need for all those rows of buttons to make your pattern, just bang it in and you’re done. While in live playback mode the buttons become mutes for the 2 tracks. The Rate knob can go from 30 to 300 bpm or you can clock in externally and then divide it with the same knob. The Repeat knobs set the number of repeats after the step has fired giving you that ratcheting effect. In Tuplet mode all the repeat triggers are stretched to fill a single bar.
All of this clock mangling churns out an interesting array of polyrhythmic and polymetric patterns. In fact it’s remarkable how much stuff is coming out of such a compact 2-channel trigger sequencer and all of it CV modulatable for additional movement and chaos. You can also store up to 8 patterns for handy recall.
Euclidean mode lets you work the shapes and rhythms of the Euclidean algorithms via the two Repeat knobs. It’s a really interesting mode for automatically generating patterns and competing triggers.
Running Order is a brilliant little trigger sequencer which would rule in a small drum rack and probably love to have a twin to interact with. It’s available now for €160.
