What are Perc Pro ins and outs

PERC Controller IN/OUT:
• 1x MIDI DIN in
• 1x MIDI USB in
• 3x Drum Gate in
• 3x CV Velocity in
• 1x MIDI DIN thru
• 1x MIDI DIN out
• 3x PERC Ball out

What is Perc Pro power consumption?

Maximum 240W - only when three beaters are playing at the same time with the greatest velocity. In a typical situation, it's much less than that.

Some more data about power supply:
• IEC AC power inlet for internal power supply
• Operates worldwide on voltages between 100 and 240 volts at 50 to 60 Hz

What are Seq ins and outs?

• MIDI In to either sync clock or input MIDI notes
• MIDI Thru
• Two independent MIDI Outs
• USB for bidirectional MIDI communication
• Footswitch input to control Start, Stop, and Record

What are Seq'a sync options?

You can choose to sync clock form:
• internal clock
• DAW via USB
• external MIDI

Is Seq USB-powered?

Yes. You can connect Seq to any USB power source.
It can be even powered from your smartphone or tablet.

Can I use Seq to play virtual instruments on my computer?

Yes. Seq will appear as MIDI device in your DAW/virtual instrument if connected to a computer with USB cable.

Can I use Seq with a smartphone or a table?

Yes, there are tons of great apps that support MIDI.

With Android devices, you do not need additional equipment. Androids works as host device so you connect your smartphone directly to the USB port and you can send and receive MIDI notes.

With Apple devices, you need either the inexpensive Lightning-to-USB-camera adapter or iOS MIDI interface like IK Multimedia iRig MIDI 2 and use standard MIDI din cables.

Is Seq's USB connection bidirectional?

Yes, you can send and receive data to a computer/tablet/smartphone.

Receiving data from the external device is useful when programming a sequence. You can send MIDI notes, velocity, and modulation.

How do I enter notes to the sequences in Seq?

There are three options:
• hold step and hit the note on external MIDI device
• choose a note using Note knob on Seq
• choose a note that is displayed on Seq's grid

What is stored when live recording a sequence in Seq?

There are many parameters stored when recording live sequence:
• note
• velocity
• length
• MIDI cc message (modulation parameter on Seq)

Can Seq play polyrhythms?

Yes. Each track can have different length, so it's very easy to create polyrhythms.

I'd like to use Seq with my Eurorack modular synthesizer. How to do it?

We have a dedicated Eurorack module - Poly.
http://polyend.com/poly

It converts MIDI signals to CVs.
Each Seq track is represented in Poly by a row of Gate, Pitch (v/oct), Velocity and Modulation (CC message).

Poly is also a universal polyphonic MIDI to CV converter so you can use is also for different MIDI devices.

What are Poly First, Next and Channel modes for?

Let' start with Channel. In this mode, voices 1-8 are received from MIDI Channels 1-8 accordingly. You can switch to channels 9-16 using dip switch on back panel. This mode is useful if you want to connect external sequencers like Seq or your favorite DAW.

First and Next become handy when you want to play your modular using external controller. What is cool in these modes is that we implemented automatic gate recognition. So say you just want to control only two voices - you input whichever two gates.
In First mode when you press a key on external device first non-occupied voice from the top will be triggered. The use case here might be for example playing bass synth with your first note and then melody using different synth while holding the bass note.

Next mode works like voices do in most polyphonic synthesizers. When you send MIDI note, it will look for next non-occupied inserted gate and trigger it. Here you can get the very cool effect if you send voices to different-sounding modules. Then playing melody will scroll across those voices. Again, these are only basic examples.
