Sequencers are graphic editors of sound
 
I have been using Numerology quite a bit..

I have read thousands of pages of piano notation, studied all of Bach Preludes in Fugues book one over a period of 3 years, my daily idea of good work was to play through the whole book (70min) or work on 8 or 9 in detail and spend 2-3 hours playing through all 48 preludes and fugues at the end of the session.

Did and exhaustive period with a large program of Debussy works.

Anyway to get to the point, I'm nuts/love the way Musical Notation looks as a purely graphical form, it's really very ornamental and beautiful to look at..

Now Numerology with it's Launchpad has something of this quality..

Sometimes when I'm working on a sequence, I get a sense that if it looks good, it often sounds good too.. Am I crazy??

Thanks

Not crazy at all I think. At the school where I work I've always found it interesting that you can usually guess the final result of a student compostion based on first impressions of a chart. I'm not quite there yet with the launchpad, but I haven't had it for too long and maybe I just need to write better stuff if I want pretty pictures. :o
