stochastically generated melodies? yes, very much: the melodicer, an endless well of beautiful melodies. More detailed descriptions and pictures are following shortly.
Instead of editing each step of the sequence individually, Melodicer allows you to create whole sequences with only a few settings. The twelve sliders in the middle area are used to determine the probability of a certain note value within the sequence. With the two sliders to the right of the note value sliders, you can set the limits of the range of note values. The Rhythm section lies above the Melody section just described and consists of four knobs. Note Value controls the global note length of each event. Variation determines how far note lengths can differ from the note length set with Note Value. Turning to the left makes the deviating note lengths longer, turning to the right makes the note lengths shorter. Legato controls how the gate output behaves in relation to changing note values. If Legato is turned all the way to the right, the Gate output is permanently high. The Gate output can also be manually muted at any time. The rest is used to create rests within the sequence. If you turn Rest to the right, successive notes are skipped. With the Dice button you can create new sets of random values for melody and rhythm. If you press and hold a dice button, the realtime mode is activated by continuously creating new values and no repetitions take place. Patterns can be stored and recalled in 16 memory locations. Melodicer does not only react on manual settings. Two CV and two gate inputs are available for modulating and manipulating the sequence. The legend in the lower third of the panel lists the assignable parameters. Apart from that, Melodicer can also be used as a comprehensive quantizer.
