Nk-seq8 - 8 step sequencer on Korg Nanokontrol2


A three channel 8 step sequencer controlled by the Nanokontrol 2.

– 2 monosynths based on the Analog Style C&G patch
– Separate control over volume, pan, decay, filter and delay parameters
– grds drum sequencer (although don’t think it’s in sync properly…)
– Reverb on master output

Also included in the .zip file is a .nktrl_data file for uploading the scene to your Nanokontrol 2 using the Kontrol software.

Play turns the sequencer on / off. The “S” buttons trigger synth 1 and the “R” buttons trigger synth 2. The knobs and sliders change the note on synth 1 and 2 respectively. You can change the step length of synth 1 by pressing the “M” buttons.

The maple keys transpose the sequence.

Lots of improvements planned. :smiley:



This is exceptional!

I’m at work right now and so excited to go home and try this out!

Thank you for your hard work!


Thanks! Any feedback / suggestions welcome. I think it would really benefit from having two different synth voices rather than both using the Analog Style one.


Do I need a Nanokontrol to run this patch?


Essentially yes due to the mappings used. The Nanokontrol is needed to:

  • Run the sequencer
  • Turn step triggers on and off
  • Change the MIDI notes for each step

You could use another controller such as a Novation Launchcontrol but you’d need to change some of the mapping settings.
