It’s in the beat:

The new Beat Page in Sequel 3 is the centrepiece for all your beats, rhythms and grooves.

Harnessing the power of the Groove Agent ONE drum station and the Beat Designer step sequencer, the Beat Page gives you direct access to groovy drum sounds and easy programming of rhythmical patterns — all in one spot. Following the philosophy of legendary drum machines, the Beat Page combines simplicity and convenience to become the starting point of your creative productions.

Bring your music to the stage:

The Sequel 3 performance mode combines the advantages of linear and pattern-based workflows and lets you create and arrange your tracks in real time.

Just define parts in your project which are then automatically assigned to the performance pads. Assign the pads to your MIDI controller or keyboard and trigger the patterns on the fly without missing a single beat. Break free and let the track evolve live on stage. And it just gets better: you can also record your performance, re-edit or export it back into your project.

The power of sound:

Sequel 3 is equipped with a fine selection of high-quality instruments and effects for your production.

The HALion Sonic SE sound workstation provides you with more than 500 sounds and instruments for all kinds of musical styles — from analog instruments to synthetic pads, leads and basses. Groove Agent ONE adds authentic drum sounds to your tracks and brings the groove into your productions. For guitarists, Sequel 3 includes the VST Amp Rack SE that turns your computer into a legendary amplifier. Even third-party VST 3 plug-ins can now be integrated into Sequel 3.

The Step Envelopes editor in Sequel 3 allows you to easily modulate your audio tracks with reverse, stutter or pitch effects that will make your remix creatively remarkable.
