Just wonderin’ what you guys use to build your step sequencers on a physical workbench?
Seems like I’ve been using the 4017 just because it’s easy. It’s right there and can work with it on auto-pilot. But I’m positive there’s got to be a better discreet IC.
you’d think it would be easy just look around posts and what not- but there’s a lot of echo involved. It seems like once you’ve entered 4017 into google - that’s all you get lol.
When you’re makin’ home-made sequencers, what components are your favorite?

The 4017 is basis of the Baby 10 DIY sequencer project because of its simplicity. Other options are counters like the 4022 coupled with mickey mouse logic or a binary decoder to decode the output steps. Have a look at Ray Wilsons MFOS pages for some inspiration. There’s a lot of info on this stuff on the electro-music and modwiggler forums too.
Outstanding, thanks bud!
Was browsing around Music From Outer Spaces site there and got a little side tracked…^.^
I’m checkin’ out the 16 step with random. great documentation. thanks for pointing the way.

Just want to say thanks for making my favorite VCV Rack Sequencer (and those other modules).
it really helps pull everything together for me. wouldn’t be the same without it.
I’m building an Ornament and crime (actually 2) - uses the Teensy 3.2 microcontroller.
I’m also working on a multifunction module using the Raspberry Pi Pico.
Also, there’s the Gizmo: didn’t build that one yet - it uses Arduino Uno or Mega.
Doepfer Dark Time uses the PIC18F4550P
I used to use a 4066 to select analog voltages. Driven from a counter.
