Genstep16 is a very interesting kind of step sequencer. It has the ability to generate new arpeggio/melody patterns over time. Also adding variations in velocity and duration make the patterns seem very organic and human. Very inspiring!


Specify a scale, press the "generate random sequence every 8th bar" and Genstep16 will automatically generate a random pattern. You can adjust the velocity and duration for each note or set it to randomly generate variety for both with a specified interval.

You can choose between random, staccato, legato or you can draw in the velocity and duration of each note.
