Device Overview

Name/Version: Ultimate Ztep Zeq 3.0
Author: animatek  
Description: UZZ 3.0!!
UZZ 3.0 is a Max For Live device inspired in the step sequencer created by Len Sasso for Logic Audio. Redesigned and reviewed for the new Ableton technology and taking advantage of the ability of Live 9 to automate and map any parameter from his interface. We have created a totally optimized and new fascinating device.

Step Parameters:

UZZ 3.0 is a 16-step sequencer where you can adjust each parameter in every step independently. Also, all parameters can be changed randomly with very few clicks. Awesome results really quick!!!


Mode : In this section you can see information of the corresponding step note and enable or disable the step with the cross or play button.

Pitch : Here you can change the step pitch range from 0 to 12 (full octave).

Octave : Change the octave of the step, five eights are available from -2 to 2.

Velocity : Change the range of the velocity of the step, from 0 to 127.

Duration : The duration can also be adjusted in each step, 128n, 64n, 32n, 16n, 8n, 4n, 2n.

Controls : With these two controls you can modulate any of the four maps controls or any destination using the matrix section.

Map Controls: The four controls allow you to map any parameter in your Live set. To make them work you should assign an entrance signal activating them at the Matrix modulation section.

Global Parameters:

Xpose: Xpose has two states. ON: the notes coming from a MIDI clip will be the source for the transposition, OFF: transpose the sequencer manually using the adjustable number.

Direction: The playback direction can be modified: Forward, Backward, Back and Forth, Random, Drunk.

Steps: Select the number of steps of your sequence from 1 to 16.

Quantize: Change the quantization of the sequence: 1/2, 1/4, 1/8,1/16, 1/32, Dotted and Triplets.

Swing: Activate or deactivate swing on your sequence and adjust the amount.

Scale: Select the type of scale (up to 19 different scales).

Matrix Modulation:

In this particular section of the device you can activate the incoming modulation signal from the Pitch, Velocity, Duration, and the two controls.
The parameters that can be modulated are:

The four MAP parameters (M1 to M4).
Two adjustable Controls Change (blue numbers)
Program Change (PC).
Pitch Bend (PB).
AfterTouch (AT).

Fantastic update! Bought instantly ! Been using UZZ for some time now. Great to see you're advancing the sequencer.
Works wonderfully mapped to the bcr2000..
cheers

actually haven't mapped the uzz to my bcr2000 yet.
was thinking of another.
there's no right click midi learn here. is this possible ?

Glad you find it useful!!!

Do you want to map the pitch and velocity sliders?

I'll make an update in a couple of days, don?t worry!

Thanks for the support!!

definitely! map as much as possible.
especially pitch, quantization, randomize buttons.

being able to map this to the massive amount of knobs available to the bcr2000 is where its at!

how do the updates work for folks who bought it ?

Hello, i send an update of the UZZ through Sellfly to the 1.1 version, please confirm all is right with the download stuff...

fully mappable ;)


download update confirmed! danka

Grabbed myself a copy. Can't wait to get home and run some analogue synths through it.

ok bought this because it promised maping of all major parameters... now i cant find how to use my BCR 2000 to change OCTAVE and PLAY/MUTE for each step... there is no email on authors pages... anyone can help me how to change OCTAVE and PLAY/MUTE for each step via midi mapping and BCR 2000... thanks

the standard Ableton 8 "Edit MIDI Map" highlights and lets me assign midi to:

- PITCH
- VELOCITY
- DURATION
- CONTROL 1
- CONTROL 2
- QUANTISE
- QUANTISE AMOUNT
- NO. OF STEPS
- RANDOMISE BUTTONS
- and probably more i didnt spot

but id love to have midi map to MODE PLAY/MUTE and OCTAVE for each step - its either there but i dont see how to map it... clicking with mouse open submenu on MODE and OCTAVE and it doesnt let me midi map

thanks

not next to my bcr2000 at the moment.
but will look into this in few.
i use uzz with the bcr2000 as well.


@VR hi, in the next update the mode will be switched to a toggle or a menu;)

I'm looking at some method for the octave too...

For the nexts updates, how do You feel the UZZ with 32steps????

ooh my. 32 steps! heck yes. do it. why not. would be amazing for sure. can't wait for the next update..
cheers

Hello,

I'm sporadically having issues with stuck notes on external synths when I use the sequencer. Anyone else having this issue?


Hello again! I did some testing, and I used Ableton's mono sequencer, Sting by Skinnerbox, and the Uzz sequencer.

The only sequencer giving my external synths stuck notes is the Uzz. I have to power them off and on again to get them to stop.
This is everything from my Minibrute, Moog synths, and Korg synths.

Is it possible to add a panic button that would give all an notes off to the sequencer? It's very usable with soft synths, but I bought it to use with my externals.

Can you help me out?

Hello i will add a panic button for the next update!!! thnxs for the support!

panic button Added!!

Hi

Loving this sequencer, am planning to map it to bcr2000 soon

It seems to be messing with my undo history in live 9.1, max 6

or am I missing something?

Thanks for a great sequencer :)
