Analogue Solutions Megacity is a 64-step true analog sequencer. The steps can be played from step 1 to 64 in series mode, or as 2 channels of 32 steps each in parallel mode. The sequencer can also be split into two halves — L and R — and these halves can then be played in parallel, providing two channels of CV and gate, each with their own glide, range, quantize, CV and gate controls and patch points.
Megacity features 64 per-step CV controls, 64 gate channel select switches and 64 reset/jump switches. It also has a built-in CV quantizer, which can be used to quantize raw CV values into semitones.
The sequencer can be clocked by an internal VC analog clock (VCLFO) or via an external voltage (e.g., external LFO). The clock speed can be changed using a control voltage. Megacity can easily be integrated with a MIDI sequencer or DAW. It can be synchronized by sending a sequence the same MIDI note, which will advance the sequencer a step at a time. Megacity also has MIDI out and will send its sequence data to your MIDI synth.
Why do I need this sequencer? What's so special?
Megacity is formatted differently and operates differently than other step sequencers. Traditionally, step sequencers run horizontally from left to right then loop back to step one. You can make the pattern shorter but generally that's it.
Megacity patterns run vertically downwards in columns. As the end of each column is played, the next column to the right is played. Megacity has a unique jump system: when a jump switch is on, the rest of the column's steps are bypassed and the sequencer jumps straight to the start of the next column. These two features in particular are familiar enough to be intuitive, but different enough to encourage you to work and think in a slightly different way, the end result of which is the creation of sequences and patterns that you might not have created otherwise.
Many step sequencers can start to sound repetitive, since it's usually the same single pattern looping endlessly. Megacity allows you to split the sequencer in half and use the right half as a fill-in pattern to add variation, much like vintage drum machines. These fills are activated via a MIDI note, via a front panel push button, or via a gate input.
Megacity's format and jump switches combined with excellent features like fill-in, quantizers, split-sequencers and other features make it a truly unique sequencer package.
