38HP. 12 track
Performance Sequencer

Freshly served for tasty rhythms, juicy melodies and sparkling modulation. Cuisine is ready to spice up your system with intricate rhythmic arrangements, organic patterns and polyrhythms.

 

Showcasing 12 tracks, the Step Sequencer offers you abundant space for exploration and play. From advanced personalized scales to Euclidian rhythms, this instrument provides you with the essential tools for tailoring your personalized workflow.

12

track

Construct complex rhythms through 12 tracks freely assignable to control drum voices, musical notes or CV modulation. Store 12 tracks in one project.

complex

rythms

Play with the flexibility of Cuisine's clocking. Tracks can be clocked independently or coupled together. You can also customize the way tracks interact with each other to create polyrhythms.

melody

maker

 

Craft quickly interesting melodies and chord progressions with a personalized scale and transpose system.

euclid

 

Making interesting rhythms can be as easy as activating the Euclidian function. Manipulate these organic patterns by changing their size, offset and steps.

 

flow

Cuisine is designed to offer you seamless control with just one hand. This ensures rapid interaction and a fluid flow during improvisations in the studio or in live musical performances.

modular spirit

Cuisine is made to connect to your Eurorack modular setup. With Midi In and Out, many Gate outputs and CV's, you are ready to trigger, gate and modulate your system.

ready

to-go

 

Coming in a standalone format that can be converted to Eurorack, Cuisine is versatile and portable, a powerful tool for delectable grooves.

Open Source

Hardware is open source, making Cuisine a powerful platform to develop your very own sequencer or controller application.

Specifications

12 tracks with three different modes available:

Note, Drum, or Modulation

Track Modes

  • Each track can have an independent size of up to 64 steps

  • Individual track clock division settings

  • 12 patterns per track and 16 banks for storing patterns

Track Configuration

Versatile Usage

  • Can be used as a stand-alone unit or integrated into a Eurorack modular system

  • Intuitive operations such as Copy, Paste, and Clear

  • Quick save and load functions for selected tracks

  • The ability to change patterns for the current track or all tracks simultaneously

  • design for one-handed operation

Hardware

  • Endless potentiometer with the silky smooth feeling of a regular potentiometer

  • The hardware is built around an Atmega 4809 microcontroller (think Arduino Nano Every)

  • The open-source nature of the hardware allows adventurous users to develop their firmware.

Musical Features

  • User-customizable scale that can be deactivated independently on each track

  • Main transpose feature for easy chord progression within the selected scale

  • Override/Performance mode for performing a track as a sequenced arpeggiator

  • Individual gate length control per step, as well as a track-specific gate length relative to the next note

  • Euclidean rhythm generator for generating complex rhythmic patterns

  • Velocity control, including the track's main base velocity and the track's main accent velocity for more expressive sequencing

  • Drum track with full-range velocity per step

  • Playmode options, which can be regular or gate

Inputs & Outputs

All inputs and outputs are freely assignable to one or more tracks

Gate inputs can be used for main clock input, individual clock input, reset, or play functions

  • 4 CV (Control Voltage) outputs ranging from 0 to 8V

  • 8 gates/triggers outputs with a voltage range of 0 to 5V

  • 4 gates inputs

  • MIDI TRS input and output

  • USB-C port for power and firmware updates
