a shruthi hack puts better oscillators at your finger tips… really does sound exceptionally better… makes me wanna use it more now.
and for ambika

i’ve already installed 1.5 on both my zaquencers. thinking about getting a third one. still have two new bcr2000 lying around.
on hardware i’m using with the zaquencers it’s currently the korg volca bass and keys and the waldorf rocket.
thinking about getting the arturia microbrute or novation mininova in addition. or the waldorf streichfett. not sure, yet.

Hello my name is Carbilicon.
With my Zaquencer, I’m using a YAMAHA PSS480, TECHNOSAURUS MICROCON 2, NOVATION XStation 49. Digital, analog and FM in a nice little rig in the studio where I’ve historically made psychedelic techno-trance…October 17, 2016 at 9:26 pm #5210
Hi, after getting a BCR2000 & the firmware sometime ago, finally got round to having a go on it. Gotta say so far I’m really impressed – seems really intuitive & fun to use. Much prefering it DAW based sequencing. Great work Christian, thanks! ☺
Current hardware setup that I intend to use:
Waldorf Pulse 1
Oberheim Matrix 1000
Novation Bass Station 2
Yamaha RM50 percussion module
Novation Drum Station
Lexicon MX4000 reverb
So far had a play around using few bits of my gear (drumstation,pulse, BSII) all works great ☺…but was wondering if it’s possible to utilise all my equipment with one Zaquencer, with midi thru boxes – have more than one midi channel set up on each track?
Or do I need another Zaquencer to control all the above i.e. a track per each synth module?
Greatful for any advice.
Many thanks NickOctober 18, 2016 at 2:15 am #5212
each track is set up for 1 chanel and is a monophonic sequence for all intents and purposesOctober 18, 2016 at 7:10 am #5213

re-did this track using the Zaquencer, TR626, Volca Keys, Moog Model 15, iMini, Patterning, … and recorded through a little behringer mixer to an old Akai tape machine as you can see in the videoDecember 27, 2016 at 4:36 pm #5343
I’m a rookie on Zaquencer.. For the moment I try to manage the drums, samples and synth sequences for a psycho-rock trio (with two singers and guitarists. )
So my set up would be :
Zaquencer as master-of-it-all : clock out, footswitch to change pattern, not much live pattern modification…
- Korg VOlca Beats (would need lot of CC control for samples rate and parts level), Yamaha RX-21 for drums .. maybe on the same track ( velocity applies on yamaha, but not on volca) .. but would be cool to keep one midi control on this track for ratcheting drum notes…..
Problem : only 16 instruments avalaible on one drum track when it would have been great to have 19 ( for all the instruments of the two drumbox)
_ Microgranny 2 for noise, lo fi drums and bleeps samples with dedicateds CC controls (would need extra CC tracks sending from other tracks) …
- MFB microzwerg ( velocity applyed to LFO’s speed, VCA and / or Cutoff, no CC receive)
- CLavia Nordstage 2 for live playing, send some midi notes to Zaquencer In …And If i succeed to group other gear on same tracks without note overlapping ( for example microgranny and volca on track 2), would be cool to also send some midi notes and after touch to Clavia for some pads…
To sum up : any hints welcome to use MFB and Yamaha Tracks to get more controls on VOlca and GRanny without midi conflicts
Thanks for your advices.. bye allFebruary 5, 2017 at 1:24 am #5527
