Steppy from Intellijel is a 4-track gate sequencer for eurorack modular synths. It features eight stored memory slots, malleable parameters, external clocking, and a decidedly performance-focused interface. Each of Steppy’s tracks features its own length, gate length, swing setting, delay setting, and probability control. Track lengths range from 1 to 64 steps, gate lengths range from very short to very long (extending all the way to tied gates), swing offsets the timing of every subsequent step, and probability determined the likelihood that the gate will fire when selected.
Programming Steppy is easy, simply enter or tap the active steps in real time or modify them as needed while the sequence plays. An aptly-named Select button facilitates direct access to each track and the 16 steps therein. From there, users can expediently mute/unmute tracks, clear and recall patterns, and enable an exclusive performance mode—called “Loopy”—that creates a loop from any two priorly-selected gate steps.
