One knob controlled variation
I have been playing around with techniques to add variety to a sequence, controlled with one knob. The goal is to have one knob per track mapped to my beatstep, to allow easy variation during performance.
This solution I've found is to map the knob to a midi chance module. That on its own is too chaotic, so what I've done is also hook up the chance module to a beat-synced graphic modulator. So when the midi controller sets chance to its minimum value, the chance will be entirely controlled by the modulator. Inbetween you get some subsetting but mostly the original sequence.
This video isn't the best example of the technique but you get the idea.
