Description: Numerology is a modular music sequencing and audio plugin environment for Mac OS X. It takes the step sequencing and modulation metaphors established by the analog sequencers of the 70’s, and implements them in a structured and highly interactive software environment designed for experimentation, improvisation and live performance. By using Numerology in conjunction with your choice of Audio Unit plugins and hardware synths, you can create an open compositional environment that is truly your own.
But there are limitations: Fixed numbers of steps, fixed speed settings and pitch ranges. Limited numbers of voices, or presets, or routing options. Sometimes these issues are tied to a serious learning curve, or a cryptic user interface. And in the case of most of the interesting hardware options, expensive. Very expensive.
Numerology gives you a step sequencing environment that provides all the immediacy and experimentation that you are looking for, but removes the limitations. It does this by giving you several powerful but easy to use sequencing modules and a flexible virtual studio environment for them to live in, complete with audio plugin hosting, audio mixing and a timeline for building arrangements.
Numerology’s sequencers are not primitive modules that you have to spend weeks configuring and routing with other components just to get something playable. These are full-on MIDI and CV step sequencers that on their own are more powerful than most hardware sequencers, while still offering enough flexibility to satisfy even the most die-hard tweaker.
But it doesn’t stop there. A full suite of companion modules can be mixed and matched with the sequencers to expand their capabilities. LFO’s, Envelopes, CV Mixers, MIDI Generators and processors, they’re all there. There is even an integrated parameter modulation feature that makes it easy to automate anything from just about anything else.
