Consequence is a VST/AU compatible synthesizer/sequencer plugin.
The word Synquencer describes the combination of a powerful
synthesizer and complex step sequencer which creates pitch-,
modulation-, and trigger data.
Consequence uses 16 chords to play them in sequence, extract
melodies to trigger a unique sound section with lots of available
instrument sounds and intelligent trigger interpretation.
The Consequence VST plugin sends MIDI data, so all kinds of
MIDI-compatible gear can be controlled by Consequence.
Three individual sound generators called Instruments are
available. Each one of these Instruments can play its own
interpretation from the existing sequence due to individual
trigger settings and volume envelopes. The instruments work
with a sampling library which has been created exclusively
for Consequence. 237 sounds are currently available, recorded
from first class natural instruments and synthesizers. Also
there´s a multi effects device available containing
Reverse, Chorus, Phaser, Delay and Reverb effects. The final
stage of the Consequence sound section is the master section
which offers tuning features, a fine master compressor and
a kickdrum which plays a 4/4 rhythm. The kickdrum is a friendly
helper to keep the groove while you are creating sequences,
also it can be sent to the compressor explusively to glue
the mix together or let the level drop at each quarter note.
The central part of the Consequence surface is taken by the
Sequencer Section. The eight 32-step-sequencers represent
the ultimate playground for groovedesign. For each Instrument,
the Filter and the FX section there is a modulation track.
Beside the classic gate sequencer track, there are the chord
sequencer and the performance sequencer which arrange chords
and melodies. Up to 16 chords can be created and stored in
the Chord Memory and all will be called by the Chord Sequencer.
The Peformance part of the sequencer lets you to choose for
each step if a chord or a single note plays and offers simple
but powerful methods to create pretty complex music out of
a handful of chords. Notes can be held for a number of steps
or triggered multiple times on a single step. Additionally,
each Instrument can decide for itself if its triggered exclusively
by full chords or by single notes and if it plays each gate
step or each second, third..and so on. All sequencer data
is sent to MIDI out, so you can trigger any instrument, hardware
or plugin, with Consequence. Finally, with Consequence you
can create song structures from chords and melodies in a fresh
and intuitive way.
