Hi VCV Users,
I’m happy to announce Gradients – a midi sequencer aimed at composing with timbre.
Gradients aims to help musicians compose with continuous parameter changes with the same degree of comfort that traditional DAWs focus on composing with notes or audio clips.
It’s a standalone program that can be used with whatever sound-generating program you like.
The basic workflow is as follows:
- midi map knobs within Gradients to parameters within your audio-generating program
- save combinations of knob values in frames
- sequence the frames (changes between frames can be discrete or interpolated)
The program also includes an option to send midi notes at the start of a sequencer segment (intended to trigger clip launchers or similar).
Here it is being used with VCV Rack:
If you’re interested in using Gradients or have any questions, please let me know below. I’m planning on making it generally available for a reasonable price.
