Version 0.1 from October 2020

Step sequencer with gates and triggers that I built for my drum machine project. It’s based on an Arduino Nano Every.


  • ✅ 8 steps
  • ✅ 3 tracks
  • ✅ Speed control by external CV (triggers/gates forwarded with 5V)
  • ✅ Speed control by internal clock (speed set by tapping, sending 5V triggers)
  • ✅ Set and unset track hits on the run
  • ✅ Predefined track patterns


User Manual

  1. Set the internal clock speed (step display lights are blinking): Tap the steps button four times.
  2. Unset the internal clock (step display is running): Hold the steps button for two seconds.
  3. Set and unset track hits (step display is running): Push the according track button once.
  4. Use an external CV: Plug it in the track jack.
  5. Start steps at position 1 (step display is running): Push the steps button once.
  6. Choose a predefined track pattern: Hold the according track button for two seconds to enter the mode, push it once to skip through the patterns, leave it for two seconds to activate the current pattern.
