What is NASSeq?

Nasseq generates automation data.

Three main sections :

It also includes a Midi-note generator, called Gen1.


The rack can hold up to 8 plugins.
These can be a combination of Instruments, Effects and Midi plugins.

If you want the audio coming from your DAW to pass through NASSeq, you need to insert an effect in the first VST slot.

  •  choose a sequencer
  • click the assign button
  • move the control on the plugin you wish to assign.
The sequencer button    becomes red.
Click the button to confirm the assignment/recording.
Click auto to assign multiple controls one after the other.
