The DIY Sequencer

A Rule-Based MIDI Sequencer
Nest is a modular system which gravitates around the creation of MIDI. The basic ingredients are: 20 modules inspired by classic integrated circuits and today's computer features, a clever voice to synth assignment, 12 patch scenes and a quad VST/Synth/MIDI Interface.

What is Nest
Nest is a modular sequencer. It offers all kinds of modules to generate and process triggers and numbers. You can build highly complex sequencing environments with the aim to produce music with a life of its own.

Nest is equipped with resemblings of classical, transistor based integrated circuits like Shift Registers or Multiplexers, plus programming tools like the if/else and math modules. Also a writable Sequencer and flexible Arpeggiator are onboard, to make life easy when needed.

A clever voice assignment distributes the 8 possible MIDI voices to up to 4 different sound generators like VSTs, internal Synths and Drums or MIDI channels. This can make Nest not only fun when hosting your favorite plugins, you can also use it to drive your hardware park.

A new Sequencer everyday
Hardware is made of interesting components, and tinkering with them is loads of fun, now Nest provides this experience without sourcing parts and magic smoke. It provides access to the main building blocks of modern electronics, and it allows for free patching and experimenting.

You can throw circuits together like Lego bricks, and with that, sheer endless possibilities open up. Create beats from numbers and numbers from beats, distribute patterns across multiple sound sources, build intelligent songmachines.

Nest is a super flexible composition tool, which brings together classical transistor logic with modern computer functions. The wire-patching offers endless possibilities and surprises. With 12 patch scenes and a powerful sound interface, Nest is a little laboratory for complex, intelligent music machines.
