sequence a particular step in a sequence


Is it possible to sequence a particular step in a sequence in order to create variation?

In this example step 3 is sequenced;

Cycle 1 C C C C

Cycle 2 C C G C

Cycle 3 C C B C

Third step it sequenced C G B

The third step is controlled by the ADDR SEQ, steps 1.2 and 4 are fed by Reftone, clock 2 is /4 clock 1 = 120


If you want to expand on Yeager’s solution and change any step in a chosen sequence, you can use CYC by docB. It allows step voltages to be controlled by CV.

I am sure there are many more ways to do this.

Just another module to address one step of a sequence: VCV Library - Befaco Muxlicer

this is another good module for that - each step can be a set value, or an input with attenuator

Not exactly but close enough: Count Modula Nibble Trigger Sequencer

As you can gather from the replies, the type of module you’re after to do this is a “sequential switch”, and we have many of those. Also Stages/Segment Generator is great for advanced uses of this kind:

Wow! So many useful answers. Thank you so much for this =) I am new to the forum and was waiting to recieve notifications on answers so i thought nobody answered this. Will look into this!

So many ways to accomplish this, like Seq3 could have all three different versions as a row of cv sequence and fed into a switch that changes with each cycle of Seq3.

By golly, yer right. Just switch between CV1, CV2, and CV3. Use the second-from-the-bottom row of output jacks to trigger a switch like VCV’s Sequential Switch 4 to 1.

Similarly, if you wanted more steps in a sequence, one could use Count Modula’s 16 Step Sequencer

and any number of Sequencer Channel 16 expanders.

He’s also got 8-step versions of those, and the simpler Basic 8 Step Sequencer (plus Expander) versions:
