Makenoise - RENÉ

We currently have 4 of these in stock.


René is the world’s first and only Cartesian Sequencer for music synthesizers. Named for the French philosopher & mathematician René Descartes, it uses his cartesian coordinate system to unlock the analog step sequencer from the shackles of linearity.

The primary goal of this sequencer is to have a maximum amount of artist controlled musical variation, with a minimum amount of data input. There are no menus, ALL editing is done real-time, and thus, the programming of René becomes a key performance element.

“cartesian sequencer,” “geometric sequencer,” “planular sequencer,” “axis sequencer,” “non-linear sequential tuned voltage map,” all of these would be good descriptions for René.

René has up to 4 clock inputs and 2 CV inputs which may be used simultaneously to achieve complex, musical patterns output in the form of quantized voltages, non-quantized voltages and two gate/ pulse streams.

The faceplate for the René is a printed circuit board. It is black, with white and gold graphics.
