v1.2 (January 22, 2024)
- the min and max controls are now mapping targets and can be automated

v1.1 (April 29, 2023)
- added randomization controls for values, toggles or both

v 1 (April 24, 2023)
- initial release

This device is inspired by two earlier Max for Live devices:

Note Trigger Step Sequencer 1.0 by Prebentious

Note Trigger Parameter Step Sequencer 2.0 by dfodel

Known issues:
- If a MIDI note or computer keyboard key is mapped to Reset Now or the randomization buttons, every other press of the key or note will be ignored. Mapping this button works best with a footswitch.
- Live’s automation can’t represent triggering a momentary button. In order to automate Reset Now or the randomization buttons, it’s necessary to automate turning them on AND off.
- When automating Reset Now or the randomization buttons, it’s necessary to place the automation slightly before the time when you would like it to occur.
- At extremely fast tempos or when changing meters, the Reset every x functionality may not work reliably.

Hi Denis,
Thank you for this device, looks awesome! I've been looking for this for a long time.
Do you think it would be possible to implement a control which shifts the starting position in the sequence? like a discretized version of the phase shift control in the LFO device. I think such a feature would be very useful (at least for me) for creativity, etc..
all the best!
Hi salmociu,

This is possible to do, and is actually available in the related devices I mention ( and

I deliberately didn't put this in my version, though, because I thought it would be a bit complicated to have these options alongside the options for disabling steps.

Can you describe a bit about what you want to do that you can't do by disabling specific steps?
Love this thank you! Found from whoever posted it in the max for live facebook group
Awesome Dennis. Your devices are amongst my all time fav. You absolutely rock.
