Euclid Rhythm Generator BUY IT NOW
Euclid Rhythm Generator is a Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason that uses Euclid’s Algorithm to generate natural-sounding rhythmical patterns. You can use it to trigger anything that has a gate input: Drums, synths or even external instruments. It’s dead simple to use — Just hook it up and start tweaking the knobs! The interactive graphical display visualizes every change you make to your pattern in real-time, and Euclid always stays in time with the music. Euclid also comes with plenty of inspiring patches for you to use as starting points.

Use this if you want to create your own Remote Maps for Euclid. See this web page for more details.

The back panel comes packed with CV connections. Hear your rhythm tracks come alive as you modulate everything and anything! Euclid will keep playing without missing a beat.
All modulation inputs come with trim knobs, of course.
The manual reset button and CV input will force Euclid to restart from the first step, for when you want to match a time signature change or just create interesting counter-rhythms. The Enable button can be automated in order to create arrangements.
And although Euclid includes a very powerful and flexible sync section, sometimes you need even more control. Using the Clock and Reset CV inputs, Euclid can easily be synced to Reason’s built-in pattern devices, without having to start the main sequencer. You can also feed it irregular clocks, including random LFOs or even other Euclid patterns!
Get Your Groove On
Euclid also comes with a Pitch CV output. If you want to play a specific key on a sampler you can easily dial it in using the Pitch knob on the front panel. If you want to play simple arpeggios, just send MIDI notes to Euclid from a sequencer track. All pitch changes are of course quantized to Euclid’s clock (internal or external) to avoid any unwanted glitches.
