Intellijel Designs Steppy
The Steppy from Intellijel is a feature-packed four-channel trigger sequencer which maximizes the potential of the nascent 1U format. It features deep control over critical parameters such as sequence length (up to 64 steps!), gate length, swing, delay, clock division, and probability. Programming is a breeze thanks to grid- and tap-record modes, and sequences can easily be shifted forwards or backwards to maximize groove. For performance, tracks can easily be muted and unmuted, and portions of a sequence may be looped in "Loopy" mode by simply touching the first and last step. Even better, the Steppy has eight internal memory slots for saving patterns and parameters, making modular beat composition easier than ever before!

Each track on the Steppy can have its own length, clock division, swing, gate delay and probability. The tracks can also be shifted in relation to each other to change up the patterns. The Steppy can also do ratcheting and has save slots.
Each track features numerous parameters that govern its playback independently of the other tracks. Specifically:
Each track has its own length, which can range from 1-step to 64-steps, allowing for polyrhythms, fills, or constantly evolving gate interactions between tracks.
Each track has its own gate length, which ranges from very short to very long, with tied gates possible at the extreme setting.
Each track has its own clock divider, allowing patterns to play out over completely different periods of time.
Each track has its own swing setting, which offsets the timing of every other step.
Each track has its own delay setting, which offsets the timing of every step.
Each track has its own probability control, which sets the likelihood that each programmed gate will fire when called upon by the pattern.
Each track can be shifted (or ‘rotated’) forward or backward by a number of steps. So if you’ve created a pattern that ‘feels’ like it has its downbeat on step 3, you can shift that pattern two steps backward, so that the downbeat sits on step 1.
Tracks can be selected and modified in real time as the sequence plays. A SELECT button allows you to access each track (and each page of 16 steps within that track) directly through Steppy’s intuitive multifunction buttons array.
Tracks can be individually muted and unmuted, and a special performance mode (called “Loopy”) enables you to touch any two gate steps and instantly create a performance that loops between those steps.
In addition, each step within a track can be assigned a different number of ratchets (repeats), and a special Tap Record mode lets you record patterns in real-time, rather than via a step-recording grid.
Track patterns can be cleared without clearing their playback parameters, and all track patterns (along with their individual playback and performance parameters) can be saved as a preset to one of eight internal memory slots.
