Plankton Sequencer by Sound Dust is a multi-lane, multi-channel, multi-sequencer that plays any VST instrument or synth. Based on the Plankton sample library, this sequencer takes that idea and explores it further making it into an engine that can play any VST instrument or synth.
Plankton spits out midi notes or exports single and multi-channel midi files directly to the DAW. It includes a scale and key quantizer with unique quantized pitch wheel and tempo sequencing engine.
Hard to explain – intuitive and fun to use.
PLANKTON SEQUENCER is a brilliant, flexible and easy-to-use tool for generating incredible note and rhythm textures and is without doubt one of the most useful and inspiring gadgets that has ever left the SOUND DUST laboratory.
Play 12 independent sequencing devices from your keyboard like an instrument. And because they spit midi into the real world, you are not limited to the sounds inside – play any VST or external synth in real time.
The multi-lane sequencers make it a joy to hand knit complex midi sequences that can be spread across multiple instruments and channels.
Scale and key quantize is a mighty feature that helps you to quickly and intuitively generate and bend new melodies, harmonies and impossible polyrhythms. The unique pitch quantized pitch wheel scans through scales and always stays in key.
Tempo sequencer lane builds human and inhuman sounding feel in ways I don’t fully understand myself : )
Watch a video, and you’ll soon see what I mean.
