Spotted a picture on Instagram of what looks like a finished Vector Sequencer. It’s been in development for a while now and caused a bit of a stir at Knobcon in September. According to Facebook, they gave a beta version to Chris Meyer of Learning Modular just before NAMM so that’s very encouraging.

It’s an 8 channel digital sequencer in the Eurorack format with many of the features you’ll find in Numerology, their MacOS software step sequencer. It has both CV and MIDI connections as well as USB for hooking up to a computer or a USB MIDI keyboard. There are two sets of CV outputs for pitch, gate, velocity and accent and two MIDI outputs.

The main physical features are the one-octave keyboard and the OLED 256 x 64 screen. Between the two are 8 encoders for editing parameters. You can edit one parameter across 8 steps at once. The parameters are selected mostly buy the buttons above the screen.

According to information on the website for each step there is “Pitch, Gate, Velocity (err, Accent), Step Length, Ratchet (aka Gate Divide), Probability, and Random Jump. I expect Step Repeat, Groove, and some sort of Glide will also make it in. ”

There’s a dedicated button got modulation which brings up two sub-sequencers that can modulate parameters in the main sequence. And there are two inputs for external modulation devices.

All of this is subject to change as most of this information comes from announcements at Knobcon. If I can get hold of any updated information or videos on it I’ll let you know!

Here’s the Instagram post which has some information on the second image.
