Dillon Bastan Rhythmorphic

Rhythmorphic is a max for live MIDI Effect. It has four sequencers that can create “non”-euclidean sequences (patterns that are not evenly distributed) by morphing or warping a euclidean sequence by the topology (brightness values) of an image or video. This allows for complex and unique patterns to be generated and modulated. There are several options for image sources (texture generator, dropped image/video files, and a live camera). There are also various options for changing the output MIDI note and modulating just about everything for the sequencers and image settings!

Comes with:
The device, user manual, 33 presets
