A generative polyrhythmic sequencer

genbeat is a rhythm sequencer with polyrhythmic and generative features - created as a Max for Live device for exploring rhythmic variety and complexity. It generates variable rhythmic patterns either entirely by itself or through user inputs.


Enable / disable row - the far left toggle will enable / disable invidividual rows.

Note assignment - change the note assignment for individual rows.

Quantization - set the desired quantization of each row.

Enable / disable pattern generator - enable to generate randomized patterns. Specify the interval (in bars) and how many notes to generate.

Grid - consists of 10 rows - each with adjustable sequence length (up to 32 steps).


Sharing this device is a nice way to support my work. Comments, ideas, and donations are valuable and very welcome too.
