This is a comercial 21 dollars device, not a no-license needed. Just saying.
I'm new to releasing devices and don't know much about licenses so I might be missing something - But, yep, I've worked on this device for 2 years getting it to do what it does. It creates subdivisions of beats not available with any device or plugin that I've seen. Namely, subdivisions other than the those divisible by 2 and 3. For those of us interested in such things it's a pretty amazing tool.
@Lester - I follow now. Thanks for the heads-up. I didn't understand what you meant before. Corrected.
I've been looking for devices that can generate tuplet midi for a while now. I've tried a few on here but they didn't quite do what I wanted them to (polyrhythmus, wheel of fortune, some others). The ability to quickly and easily generate complex rhythms is exciting and I'll try out your device for it.
ok, this is epic. it's pretty complicated but that's fine. what I really like about it is that you have the full piano roll available for notes. i make microtonal music and I often have to use janky tricks to get ableton's piano roll to do what I want it to, so having a device that can be used with my retuned synths is amazing. thanks for making this. i've only spent a few minutes using it but I can tell it does what I want it to. divisions even go up to 99 which is pretty sweet. would be even cooler if they went up to 999, but beggars can't be choosers, and besides, 99 is already a lot to work with.
