Step Seq

Recently I discovered a ‘game’ on Kongregate called Step Seq. Apparently there are electronic devices that look exactly like this simulation. Their point is to create music on a time and frequency grid. I’ve been playing around with this one, seen at http://www.kongregate.com/games/quickfingerz/step-seq.

The fun of this is that I’ve also been video-recording a few of these and have been posting them to Youtube.

The few I’ve uploaded include an initial boring tutorial and then three more samples. They can be seen with the following links:

Step Seq

A few days ago I discovered an amazing music program hosted on the game site Kongregate. Apparently the creator, the guy who runs QuickFingers.net is in some sort of contest for a LOT of money to see who can make the coolest music game on that site. Well, his was on top when I checked a few days ago, and I tried it out. It was AWESOME!! The game he created is called Step Seq (try it at https://www.kongregate.com/games/quickfingerz/step-seq).

Really, this is just like any hardware-based step sequencer, which is apparently some sort of grid of buttons that you can press and it will modulate a midi device and play back notes. Each row on the grid is a single note, while each column is some sort of time index. The sequencer part is based on a concept that the grid will play itself over and over and you can change the settings each time.
