Time’s Arrow is a 16-step control voltage pattern sequencer designed for fast and intuitive creation of unique patterns. By blending traditional step sequencing controls and parameters with controlled randomization, Time’s Arrow allows you to generate a nearly endless variety of step sequence patterns.

While Time’s Arrow can be used as a traditional sequencer – allowing you to modify and set events such as notes, accents, ties, gates/rests, and slides, you can also generate new patterns at the click of a button. Time’s Arrow can randomize each individual event based on pre-programmed probabilities.

You can stop here…but randomness can be so…random. It’s unique and interesting, but potentially useless without the ability to control it. Time’s Arrow gives you a unique set of tools to chisel and sculpt generated patterns in fine detail – and this is what really sets Time’s Arrow apart.

Time’s Arrow allows you take each event in a generated sequence and manually adjust it; sequences can be transposed, slipped forward or backward in time, and note events can be run through the onboard quantizer. Finally, Time’s Arrow allows you not only to randomize notes, accents, ties, gates/rests, and slides (or any combination thereof), but to control the probability of randomization for each event independently.

Get inspired, then take ownership.
