SKU: Kit_NOH_Pianist Categories: , , , , Brand: HP Size: 8 HP


The NOH-modular Pianist is a complex voiced chord sequencer. It sequences chords using v/oct with up to 8-note of polyphony by controlling the root, third, fifth, seventh, and two colourful extensions. Additionally, the module has alternative modes making it compatible with Chord v2 (Qu-Bit Electronix), Plaits- Chord Model (Mutable Instruments), and Chord Organ (Music Thing Modular)!

There is a total of 32 chord slots, the Pianist will automatically voice them to make sense as a progression. However, each chord is easily editable through inversion, and spreading. By default the sequencer will play chords in order, but the chord direction tool enables song structures and clock resolutions in a musically efficient way.

The Pianist can help you compose a chord progression by quantizing your edits within a set scale! This is beneficial to beginners or experimentalists to come up with good-sounding chord progressions. Additionally, the module has a multi-function gate input that brings to life the sequence and makes it incredibly performative. The gate functions are: reset, random, shift, spread, freeze, and skipping to specific chords. Finally, the Pianist has four save slots for you to keep your compositions, or access the three presets with Jazz, Classical, and Modern examples of what the Pianist can achieve!
