Web-based MicroBrute Sequence Editor
« on: February 08, 2017, 06:25:13 pm »
hi guys, I'm an enthusiast user of Arturia products. I currently own a MicroBrute, and it's awesome. I'm using it mostly for bass, and I love how FAT it gets.

Since creating complex sequences is a little difficult just with the keyboard (at least for me), I wrote this web-based editor, and wanted to share with the community.

http://maticwebdesign.com/microbrute

It's free to use and modify.

There are many things I would like to add, but for now I think it's a nice start. Arturia will probably create an editor of their own at some point.

What you can do:

- create variable length patterns
- listen/edit in real time (I chose one of the sounds I use from the MicroBrute, more options to come)
- turn click on/off (I find this very useful for longer sequences)
- export sequence to clipboard

Once you created your sequence, this is how you load it into your MicroBrute:

1. Open MicroBrute Connection software (download from https://www.arturia.com/microbrute/resources)
2. Choose the "Sequences" tab
3. Click on "Save sequences" and save the mbseq file to your computer. MIDI versions are not needed.
4. Open the file in a text editor (notepad/textedit/bbedit/etc)
5. Choose the sequence you want to replace with the one you created, for example "1:52 x x 52 x x 52 x x 52 x x 52 52 52 52" and replace it with the one you create in the web-based editor (be sure to not delete the sequence number, in this case "1:")
6. Save the file
7. Go to MicroBrute Connection and choose "Load sequences"
8. Upload the modified file
9. Voilá! The new pattern will be available under the name you stored it (#1 for this example)

Let me know how it goes, hopefully it will be an useful tool.

Best regards,

jello

A nice utility - it's handy to be able to visualise the pattern. Look forward to you future mods.

marin_q, there is a button to copy the sequence to your clipboard. Then you paste it into the sequence file.  This is the missing step that is not explicit.

This tool is very useful and I made my account to say thanks and that it is awesome!

Hello everyone. This piece of software is a great idea and very useful for creating more complex sequences. However I cannot get the sequences to load into my Microbrute.
I have saved another mbseq file and pated my new sequence into this and saved the changes. From what I gathered this is the method that you  advise, but I keep getting an error saying: 'Bad file format on line 2 token 33.
Can you help?

the error is due to a final blank space, that you must to delete after pasting the sequence. After deleting it, all works!
