New features in Studio One 4 make it even easier to add interest to sequenced patterns.

Studio One 4 is here, and there is plenty to explore. This month, I take a brief look at the fun to be had combining two new additions. Patterns is a step sequencer, more or less in the style of old hardware drum-machine sequencing, and Impact XT is an improved version of the existing Impact drum instrument. In this workshop we’ll only cover a narrow subset of what these features can do — for instance, I won’t even mention the melodic mode for patterns — but that should be enough to convey how far you can go with them.

Some audio examples making use of probability, as well as the other techniques described here, can be found by viewing the online version of this article.
