quantum chromodynamic trigger sequencer
Quarks are the heart of observable matter. A hexaquark is a hypothetical particle. Some believe it might be found in pulsars.
HEXAQUARK is a polyrhythmic trigger sequencer with 6 channels, expressive velocity, and dynamic envelope outputs. A tool to write micro beat by composing with virtual particles, anti-matter, and quantum void.
6 channels with trigger and CV output
4 pages of 16 steps per channel, with 6 scenes recallable with CV
12 microsteps per steps for all kinds of tuplets
Beat skipping, polyrhythm, and probability on all levels
Virtual beat particles for temporary or permanent randomization

Quick startCLOCK INPUT
While Hexaquark works with any kind of clock source, its ability to perform both triplets and quadruplets requires a multiple of 12 to be in sync with other modules. x48 is recommended for fast ratcheting effects.
The 6 double jacks are the channel outputs. Trigger out is the dotted jack.
Clicking a second time (or shift + click) on a level will change its state. The default tool is matter, which will active or silent the trigger
Editing the 16 steps allows classic sequencing
Editing the 12 microsteps will create a micro rhythm within the selected step
Extra pages and scenes can be added and edited
Toggling the matter tool sets it to antimatter. An antimatter level will be skipped, and the length of the sequence will be shorter.
CV outputsEach channel has a CV output. Its role can be defined with the envelope button:
Envelope off: A velocity or mod CV output with adjustable slew.
Envelope on: A Vult signature dynamic percussion envelope with adjustable decay
The dynamic of the CV signal is controlled with the accent/ghost tool by defining the color of the level:
Accent (green) amplifies the signal
Ghost (purple) attenuates the signal
Virtual ParticlesIn CW direction, a random group of microsteps has a chance to be triggered.
In CCW direction, a random group of micro step has a chance to be skipped.
This process will give different results at each reading and is not destructive.
Keyboard shortcutMost of the sequencer is controllable with any layout of keyboard, with the mouse over the module.
