Koma Elektronik Komplex Sequencer

The Koma Elektronik Komplex Sequencer delivers four 16-step sequencers with global controls and CV inputs for every sequencer parameter, deriving complex patterns and control networks via creative CV interaction. Each sequencer features two CV outputs, programmable gate outputs, triggers for start and end points, internal and external clocking, CV inputs for transposition, length, play mode, step repeats, metric divisions, glide, and more. With the ability to have sequences sequencing each other to the nth degree, Komplex extends far beyond “four sequencers in one box” and into a comprehensive platform for designing complex CV control systems through analog logic and inspired patching.

If all that is sounding too heady, don’t dismay! With all sequencer parameters made accessible via dedicated controls and jacks, the Komplex invites creative play through physical interaction and exploration. Simply patch up each CV/gate pair to voices in your studio, set up a few points of cross-patching, and enjoy manipulating the Komplex’s ergonomic panel controls as a polyphonic happy-accident-machine. Each of the 87 patch points are located above the physical controls, keeping patch spaghetti clear from your creative fader throwing and knob tweaking pursuits.

In addition to the four sequencers there are seven CV recorders for creating gestural modulation patterns, four of which are embedded in each of sequencers A-D, with an additional 3 available independent of sequencer movement. Global controls allow you to start and stop all sequencers together with a master tempo, quantize each sequencer’s output, adjust global settings, operate the CV recorder features, and even save current settings as a preset. Rounding all of this out, the Komplex features full MIDI implementation of its capabilities, letting you send note sequences, CCs, and clock to any MIDI gear in your studio, opening up this one of a kind sequence command station to creative play-dates with virtually any electronic instrument.

The Komplex is a perfect command station for any established Eurorack system, and offers the best in patch-programmable sequencing to MIDI-capable electronic instruments of all types. If you are craving complexity to break your sequences out of the usual 4-bar looping rut, the Koma Elektronik Komplex Sequencer is an inspiring addition to any studio.

KOMA ELEKTRONIK Komplex Sequencer: Basic Overview
The KOMA ELEKTRONIK Komplex Sequencer controls the 1 V/Oct input of the Harvestman Hertz Donut via Sequencer A’s CV output. Sequencer A’s Gate Output controls the Cutoff CV of the KOMA ELEKTRONIK SVF-201 Filter and the 4ms VCA Matrix, which the Hertz Donut goes through. After creating the basic patch, we use the other sequencers to modulate play mode, transpose and gate length.

The KOMPLEX SEQUENCER is a musical monster built around four full-featured 16-step sequencers that allow and invite the user to use one or more of the sequencers to sequence the other one. The KOMPLEX SEQUENCER has no screen or submenus; all features have their own dedicated controls, and all features have their own dedicated in- and outputs on the large 86-point patch bay. Each sequencer has its own start and stop buttons, a quantizer (switchable between chromatic, major & minor scales), one-shot-mode and five different play modes (forward, backward, ping-pong, ping-pong reversed, random).

By patching both internal and external CV-sources to the patch bay of the KOMPLEX, the user is able to control the parameters for Sequence Start Point, Sequencer Clock Division, the amount of the Glide between the steps, Skip Step, Repeat Step and Repeat Length. Also, you can Transpose the whole sequence via CV, start it with an external trigger signal and use, for example, an LFO or another sequence to control Sequence Length or Gate Length. This adds up to 20 in- and outputs per individual sequencer, which, when you include the CV recorder outputs, adds up to 86 CV patch points on the whole machine, all conveniently located on the front panel.
