MeloDICER is our vision of a sequencer with the perfect balance between stochastic and deterministic creation of rhythm and melody.
Foolproof User Interface meets Extensive Capabilities
The module’s algorithms generate random values that magically turn into musical events only through your defaults. MeloDICER has a well-thought-out set of control elements that makes it easy for you to conduct rhythm and melody in any wanted direction. It doesn’t matter if you are a music theory genius or if you never heard of triplets, ties, and the like. Just take a look at the module’s surface and start playing with meloDICER. Yes, it’s that simple.
Is the Die really cast?
MeloDICER continuously generates rhythms and melodies in realtime-mode or repeats them as patterns in dice-mode. Or do you want something in between? No problem. Set the module to play a looped rhythm while the melody randomly changes or vice versa.
Shift start and endpoints of the pattern to get even more variation and complexity.
Melodies for Eternity
Do you like what you diced? MeloDICER offers 16 memory spaces for your creations. But instead of saving resulting patterns, it memorizes all random values and control settings that lead to a certain rhythm-melody-combination. Thus you can always alter stored patterns and turn them into something completely new.
MeloDICER and the Outside World
MeloDICER comes with two CV and two GATE inputs to modulate and trigger various parameters. Use it to alter certain aspects of your pattern or to expand randomness and chaos with external modules. The stochastic engine ensures that any changes are always valuable and musical.
Like a Swiss Clockwork
The internal clock generator works super-stable and tight. You can access all parameters at any time, and meloDICER instantly adapts any adjustment: no delay, no stumble, and no need for stopping the sequencer. Use the module like a musical instrument and create rhythm and melodies that perfectly harmonize with your performance.
The perfect mixture of randomness, probability, and human interaction makes meloDICER a unique creative tool. Let it inspire you to inspire others!
