Thanks, AutoStatic!

It's an arpeggiator with a strange way of forming arpeggios.. but definitely worth having around. I hope to get better at using it in the coming days/weeks..

Is seq24 included in KXStudio? I'm enjoying this (not very new) video by neuman...

Sure hope so! :D
I think it could do the trick for arpeggiating quite nicely!

Awesome! :D
Strange, I don't see people talking about it much; but I'm really curious to give it a try, hopefully later tonight, just to keep the neighbors awake... ;)

Thanks!

But, I'm forseeing a potential problem:

It seems that each "sequence part" controls one instrument.

But let's say I want to use a different sound from the same synth, on different parts?? Do I have to add additional instances of the synth?

No, you can have seq24 select another bank (if the softsynth supports it). There was a topic about this recently.
