5 Pattern-Sequencer

This Chapter explains how to use the Pattern-Sequencer (the different Step Sequencers) in the G-Stomper Applications.


Furthermore it explains how to load and save Patterns and Sound Sets. G-Stomper provides 4 different Step Sequencers:

• The Drum Machine (the main, sample based Step Sequencer) (G-Stomper Studio, G-Stomper Rhythm)


• The Sampler Track Grid (a multi-Track Beat Sequencer) (G-Stomper Studio, G-Stomper Rhythm)


• The Sampler Note Grid (a monophonic piano-roll like grid Sequencer) (G-Stomper Studio)


• The VA-Beast Poly Grid (a polyphonic piano-roll like grid Sequencer) (G-Stomper Studio, G-Stomper VA-Beast standalone)


Each Step Sequencer provides a common set of Sequencer controls. (see Chapter: Common Step Sequencer Controls)


The “Common Step Sequencer Controls” are available on all Step Sequencers (with some exceptions).


Beside the “Common Step Sequencer Controls”, each Sequencer has special features which are explained in the dedicated Chapters below.


Note: All Step Sequencers are used to create Patterns, which are the smallest building Elements in the G-Stomper Applications. So when you’re working with the Step Sequencers, then you’re always working on Patterns.
