Story


Cirklon is a multi-track hardware sequencer, designed to be at the heart of your hardware MIDI, analogue or hybrid studio setup.

Continuing from where the Sequentix P3 Sequencer left off, it retains the P3’s unique step-sequencer capabilites, and adds an event-list pattern type ideal for polyphonic synth and drum parts, with event-list and drum grid editing.

The user-interface is based around a 240×64 pixel graphic LED display, 19 rotary encoders with push-switches, 2 assignable knobs, 35 high-quality Cherry keys with integrated LEDs, and a further 35 tri-colour status LEDs.

Cirklon has up to 64 tracks, user-configurable as 1 to 4 banks of 16. There are 5 independent MIDI INs and OUTs to connect a large number of controllers and synths/sound modules while keeping MIDI latency to a minimum. There is USB MIDI connectivity for DAW synchronisation, soft-synth control or MIDI pass-thru from a PC, and a DIN Sync output which can also be configured to connect an upcoming multi-channel analogue percussion trigger interface.
The CVIO analogue bus provides 16 hi-res CV outputs, and 8 configurable gate out/CV ins on a 25 pin connector, giving direct control of analogue synths with optimum timing response and no further load on the MIDI ports.

The 32-bit, 72MHz ARM Cortex CPU runs a proprietary sequencer engine to ensure optimum timing accuracy.
All MIDI ports are provided by hardware serial ports in the CPU core itself.

Pattern storage is comprised of 2MB battery-backed internal RAM, with internal flash and an SD/MMC card socket for data backup.

 

Specifications


– create patterns by either recording live MIDI input or step sequencer style programming
– patterns can be either piano roll style with high resolution (called “CK” patterns) or rigid step sequences at a division of the master tempo (called “P3” patterns)
– an individual pattern can have multiple “bars” (not necessarily one bar long) which can be individually different, chained together, transposed etc.
– patterns can contain up to four “Aux” rows which can randomize, grab values from other tracks, send out other MIDI values or generally alter the pattern or other patterns in a variety of ways
– there are up to 64 tracks, each of which can play a single pattern plus a “fill” pattern which will play when the Fill key is pressed
– each track is assigned an “instrument” which tells it is which port and MIDI channel to use
– “scenes” store all information about which patterns are played on tracks as well as tempo, key and other pertinent values
– scenes can be organized into “songs”
– with CVIO board and breakout box, Cirklon can output CV and gate to control analog equipment
