Continuing from where our P3 Sequencer left off, it retains the P3's unique step-sequencer capabilites, and adds an event-list pattern type ideal for polyphonic synth and drum parts, with event-list and drum grid editing.
The user-interface is based around a 240x64 pixel graphic LED display, 19 rotary encoders with push-switches, 2 assignable knobs, 35 high-quality Cherry keys with integrated LEDs, and a further 35 tri-colour status LEDs.
Cirklon has up to 64 tracks, user-configurable as 1 to 4 banks of 16.
There are 5 independent MIDI INs and OUTs to connect a large number of controllers and synths/sound modules while keeping MIDI latency to a minimum.
There is USB MIDI connectivity for DAW synchronisation, soft-synth control or MIDI pass-thru from a PC, and a DIN Sync output which can also be configured to connect an upcoming multi-channel analogue percussion trigger interface.
The optional CVIO analogue bus provides 16 hi-res CV outputs, and 8 configurable gate out/CV ins on a 25 pin connector, giving direct control of analogue synths with optimum timing response and no further load on the MIDI ports.
The 32-bit, 72MHz ARM Cortex CPU runs a proprietary sequencer engine to ensure optimum timing accuracy.
All MIDI ports are provided by hardware serial ports in the CPU core itself.
Pattern storage is comprised of 2MB battery-backed internal RAM, with internal flash and an SD/MMC card socket for data backup.
I’ve just joined the Cirklon waiting list, I think? I filled out the form with my name and email. Was a bit confused by the ‘message’ box - so just put ‘I would like to join the waiting list, thanks’, pressed send and that was it. Could anyone who has been through this tell me what...
...provides arbitrary length patterns. I don't know what the current level of advanced step capabilities are on the Deluge. The Cirklon gives you P3 patterns which are step type patterns and CK patterns which are list type patterns. So you have the option to choose the type of pattern. In general, I...
I've not sequenced it from external but i have played them via a midi keyboard - to input bass channel 2 - bass channel 10 drums you can change those midi channel assignments if you want to velocity kicks off accented notes i tihnk you can set midi vol accent level per part ...
