About soft stepseq and my deMOON midi control mapping

I've shared some finds of alternative midi sequencers in my previous blog. But wizardmaster WMCP was the only one I've been playing for the previous a few days!

WMCP is beautiful, free and very smartly designed! Straight forward design, monophonic per instance, but multiple instances is possible, with all independent tempo, length. You can only manually sync them, do poly rhythm and much more... very wizardmaster, very fun.

It's great on any synth that accept using program changes to select patches. And there is a little extra work (compared to some other soft seq) if you want it to play a single patch.

And there is always the lovely... Seq303 by technotoys.

One more software step seq share:

I don't like the interface because it imitates a hardware and it's not designed very well.
Anyway no complains because it is free. Just the above 2 are better IMO.

I've been doing some kind of midi controller mapping for ths whole afternoon for the deMOON. Using the mass available, cheap and very full featured bcr2000. I've tried a few workarounds to make sense the best way. And I feel very satisfied with the progression. Now every parameter is laid out and mapped in a logical way.

By using my mapping for the deMOON I suddenly unlocked the sonic beast lies within this little box. It is totally unique and extreme. Now I love this synth even more.

After I fine tune my mapping, I will share the files, write a tutorial and shot some videos for it.
