Shut up and take my money.

Paradiddle's idea is also a damn fine one, but wouldn't want to get greedy now. I guess... :)

I apologize in advance if this question seems elementary or noobish, but I've been trying to wrap my head around the values output by the Sequencers in Aalto and Kaivo. I'm coming from a non-modular background, so even thought I love playing with Aalto and Kaivo, and have been for quite a while, this question has persisted.

I understand that the output of the Sequencers can be constrained/quantized to certain keys, and that the most obvious use of the module is to create melodies, etc. But what exactly "happens" when I patch the output of the Sequencer to a parameter that is not "scaled" (pun intended?) to musical scales? For example, what "happens" when I patch the output of the Sequencer to the nonlin or in pos. parameters? Is there internal scaling or attenuation that makes the output of the Sequencer somehow "make sense" for the parameter to which it is patched?

It's possible I'm missing something fundamental, so please edumacate me.

Thanks in advance for any responses!


Ok, thanks, Randy. The more I read your responses, experiment and reread the manual, I think I'm starting to "get it" (or at least stop overthinking it...).


Thanks for responding, Randy!

So if the output of the Sequencer is not quantized/left unquantized, what happens then? My assumption is that it's no longer based on a 1.0/octave system -- is that correct? What would be the "scale" then?

how small is small? is there a size chart? (are the women or men's small, really, is the question...)
