The Squarp Instruments Pyramid MK3 Sequencer is a standalone sequencing unit that acts as the centerpiece to your instrument chain. It allows you to sequence, edit, and play your music with ease, acting as a “brain” for your synths. The new and improved machined aluminum enclosure protects everything inside.
Pyramid is amazing for connecting all of the instruments in your setup, regardless of era or connectivity. Featuring Midi, Midi USB, CV gate and DIN sync, and even a footswitch, it’s perfect for connecting all your synthesizer instruments. The high precision clock found within Pyramid makes it an excellent synchronization tool for both old and new gear.
Despite the wide and varied uses, the Pyramid couldn’t be simpler. You can record performances at any time, generate chords, scales, and repeats. The step sequencer allows you to create detailed polyphonic melodies and send the data to your synthesizers. With a piano roll style found in modern DAWs, you can easily chop and change the rhythm and pitch of your sequence. You can even draw automation giving you yet more control over repeats, effects, volume, and more.
At the center of everything is PyraOS, Pyramid’s own operating system. Control everything using this powerful tool. The user-friendly screen means that you have a graphic display over all your effects, sequences, and more. In an effort to reduce menu diving, which can hinder performance, PyraOS gives you all the tools you need on the front panel, right at your fingertips. Fully polyrhythmic, the Pyramid gives you an incredible amount of control over the sequences, allowing you to create sophisticated rhythms or to go completely experimental.
