Cuckoo has a new video going into OP-Z step components in-depth. Step components provide variations to patterns that range from stutters, randomness, and a host of sequence altering changes that can be added per step. In combination, when stacking multiple step components on top of each other, some interesting emergent things become possible which is a lot of fun to experiment with. The other day I stumbled upon adding a step component to the arpegiator track and using the pulse and random components to create a sort of arp trill like the kind you might find in baroque music.
Step components are by far one of the most complex and interesting parts of the OP-Z sequencer and Cuckoo’s tutorial will help demistify it for you. Enjoy!
