The Euclidean Sequencer is a 16×16 step sequencer with MIDI and OSC output as well as sound file playback. It utilises a novel implementation of the Euclicean Algorithm to generate cyclic rhythmic patterns as outlined in Godfried Toussaint’s paper “The Euclidean algorithm generates traditional musical rhythms”
. The sequencer was designed to work with the Mutable Instruments CV Pal
Eurorack Module for live modular synth performance however it can be configured to communicate with most existing hardware and software.
It makes use of the the Boids extention which is based on Simon Fraser’s implementation of Craig Reynolds’ Boids algorithm. Boids is a bird flight and animal flock simulator. It is the algorithm which was used in Jurassic Park for the herding dinosaurs. Jurassic Panner is available for download on github
