Short review : the covert seq

I've posted a few suggestions about new Machinedrum step sequencing machine and Minicommand step sequencer firmware. They are some of my dream sequencers and can be very useful for most of their users. But now, they do NOT exist! There aren't much for me to do?

- nope, I've met a great step sequencer in the form of ableton live rack - the covert seq.

This thing has a massive amount of thoughts in there, thus make it very complete and useable. There is a hell lot of functions : different seq length/step length, force to scale, randomization, multiple parameters per step...altogether. This is the tool for live users to use when you want some very step sequencing characters in your music.

The down sides being:
1) it's a big rack, so it needs a bit time to load;
2) it's a software, but a step sequencer needs real knobs to be playable - just like you won't be using your mouse pointer as a pick, and keyboard as guitar fretboard. And a controller simply won't do the same;

Summary : Big ups to the author!
