Redefines music sequencing by merging advanced parameter-driven algorithms with musical constraints, offering an unprecedented level of control and creativity in composition. This innovative sequencer allows users to sculpt compositions intricately, providing a suite of features like Euclidean rhythm generation, arpeggiating pattern creation, and melodic structure modulation through pitch and scales. It also incorporates extensive randomisation capabilities for endless musical variations, seamless integration with external devices and software through Ableton Link, and robust connectivity options. With its user-friendly interface and versatile performance tools, the T-1 is designed for both intricate studio work and dynamic live performances, making it an essential tool for modern musicians and producers.

At a glance

  • Craft intricate Euclidean rhythms, inject repeating notes, and construct arpeggiating patterns and melodious structures.
  • Introduce random modulation to every parameter across each track. Lock this randomness into loops for heightened control.
  • Alter the musical feel by adjusting the timing and emphasis of notes.
  • Utilise the 16 polyphonic tracks to build chords. Navigate through harmonies and confine notes to musical scales.
  • Access a vast library of patterns, with 16 banks each containing 16 patterns, amounting to 256 patterns readily available for use.

The Torso Electronics T-1 represents a paradigm shift in music sequencing, employing algorithms driven by parameters underpinned by musical constraints. This fusion offers granular, dynamic control over every facet of your composition and paves the way for profound musical journeys and the creation of astonishing musical architectures.

Sculpting Compositions with Precision

The Torso Electronics T-1's innovative approach reimagines your interaction with sequencers. T-1 allows you to mould your composition through a suite of parameters, akin to sculpting sound on a synthesiser. The interface is crafted for seamless and evolving workflows, empowering you to modulate melodies and rhythms fluently.

In-depth Features

Euclidean Rhythms form the cornerstone of T-1's rhythm generation, utilising the Euclidean algorithm for diverse rhythmic patterns. This algorithm achieves an even distribution of a specified number of pulses across a set number of steps in a rhythmic cycle. By altering the number of pulses and steps and the cycle's rotation, almost all traditional rhythms can be emulated. Furthermore, T-1 allows the addition or removal of individual pulses, offering functionality akin to a conventional step sequencer.

The T-1's Arpeggiating Patterns feature incorporates a note repeater, enabling the creation of repetitive and arpeggiating patterns. Users can control the number and timing of repeats and arrange them in various styles to produce classic arpeggiator patterns and more innovative arrangements.

For Melodic Structures and Scales, T-1 can lock notes into musical scales, facilitating melody creation through pitch modulation with different melody phrases and looping sequences. It supports both preset and custom scales, allowing for the transformation of melodies and chords through scaling and transposition.

Randomisation is a crucial aspect of T-1's design, offering limitless possibilities for musical variation. Every parameter on each track can undergo randomisation, ranging from subtle alterations to total transformation. These random sequences can be locked into loops and scaled for enhanced control, allowing for gradual evolution and variation over time.

Linking and Synchronisation

T-1 integrates seamlessly with Ableton Link over WiFi, synchronising beat, phase, and tempo across a network of DAWs and Link-enabled devices and apps. This feature facilitates a collaborative and dynamic music creation experience, like playing in a live band, where each device can independently start and stop while staying in sync.

Performance and Connectivity

T-1 is designed with performance and improvisation in mind. It features tools for quick and significant composition alterations, allowing real-time parameter changes across multiple tracks. These changes can either be saved or reverted to their original state. T-1's versatility makes it suitable for creating musical progressions or exploring various composition variations.

Regarding connectivity, the T-1 is a formidable addition to any music setup, connecting with modern and vintage devices. It interfaces with DAWs and software synthesisers via USB and hardware through MIDI ports. Additionally, T-1 connects to analogue and modular equipment through CV, with 16 channels and tracks available to control multiple instruments in large and small setups.
