1 About

Synergy is a free and open source (semi-)modular MIDI sequencer, patch editor and event processor / router.
It is designed as a performance sequencer that supports extensive realtime sequence modulations and live arrangements of patterns and clips, all of which can be recorded back to new sequences for further editing and / or (live-)recording passes.
Features:

2 Concept

Projects consist of up to 16 pipes which may contain an arbitrary number of nodes (with 13 node types to choose from).
Nodes modify incoming MIDI events or generate new events.
The output of the first pipe ("master") is sent to all nodes while the output of all other pipes is sent to the MIDI ports.
Each node has two automation ports which can be used to remote control (legato or queued) pattern changes, mute states, play positions, playback speeds, note transpositions, and other (node-specific) features via external HW controllers and / or other nodes.
