APC Mono Sequencer

The APC Mono Sequencer is a maxforlive device which combines Cycling 74’s sequencer device with a dedicated hardware interface to Ableton’s APC40 controller. It combines a grid-based step sequencer with encoder controls for the attributes of each note.

It is available as a free download on maxforlive.com.

The APC Mono Sequencer received coverage on Synthtopia, and Zeroes and Ones were kind enough to let me write an article on its inner workings.

I followed this project up with another APC40 hack, which allows the illuminated button matrix grid to be used as a virtual “meter bridge” for VU metering of individual tracks.
