Sequencer: Five12 – Numerology 2


Five12 releases version 2 of the fabulous modular sequencer for Mac OS X – Numerology.
Some of the features in this version:
A modular step sequencing music composition environment.
MIDI-based Note Sequencing modules for monophonic, polyphonic and drum sequencing.
Flexible CV & Gate Sequencer modules for 'component-based' sequencing.
GrooveClock module for building custom grooves.
A variety of analog-synthesis-style modules for generating and processing streams of control (CV) data, including LFO's, Envelopes and XY controllers.
Several MIDI processing and filtering modules.
Audio Unit hosting.
An eight-part sample-based DrumKit synthesizer.
A polyphonic sample-based AudioSample module for audio synthesis.
A flexible virtual-rack system for organizing modules into musical parts, called Stacks.
An integrated preset system for coordinating all module settings within a stack.
An easy to setup parameter modulation system for modulating almost anything from anything else.
MIDI remote control of almost any parameter.
A timeline-based playlist arrangement system.
A dedicated audio mixer with 8 stereo aux sends per stack.
Custom routing of CV, Audio & MIDI data streams.
Stereo audio recording of the Master and Alt output busses.
Flexible synchronization via MIDI Clock, MTC or ReWire.
Universal binary for Mac OS X, 10.4.11 or later.

This release of Numerology 2 also includes a pair of sample-based synthesis modules, a polyphonic AudioSample module and an eight-part DrumKit module. Although simple in design, their integration with Numerology affords them some unique benefits, including the ability for the user to customize their settings for each preset pattern, the easy application of modulation to any parameter, and individual outputs for each part in the DrumKit.

Numerology 2 requires an Apple Macintosh computer with a CPU speed of 1Ghz or better, and 1GB or more of RAM, running Mac OS X version 10.4.11 or later, and a screen resolution of 1024x768 or better. Numerology 2 is currently available for purchase from the Five12 Web Store for an introductory price of $99 (US). After January 4th, the price will be $119 (US).

“It takes the step sequencing and modulation metaphors established by the analog sequencers of the 70's, and implements them in a structured and highly interactive software environment designed for experimentation, improvisation and live performance.” Link
