Thesys from Sugar Bytes is an extremely powerful and intuitive MIDI step sequencer plugin, giving you control over just about all aspects of your favorite MIDI devices. Use Thesys to create varied and organic bass lines, screaming leads, pulsating chords, and organic pad sounds in the studio or on stage.

For live musicians, Thesys provides an extremely versatile palette of performance options which can be triggered right from your MIDI keyboard: you can transpose, manipulate, twist up, mutate, and mangle your patterns without even getting near your computer.

Thesys is a plugin which can be used with any major Windows or Mac VST/AU/RTAS host. This includes Cubase, Logic, Kore, and Ableton Live, among others. No other MIDI sequencer plugin offers you the ease and power of Thesys. It is fully MIDI compliant and therefore provides the ultimate MIDI sequencing solution.

Sequencer Tracks
Pitch: the pitch sequencer works in relation to the root key and transposes it by +/- 12 semitones. It can work in chromatic mode or in scaled mode which expands the tonal capabilities a lot. In addition, the pitch sequencer has a flexible recording function

Lock: Lock is part of the pitch sequencer. An active step deactivates the midi transposing. This is useful for keeping important notes and chords in key while transposing the sequence

Gate: the Gate Sequencer creates notes and determines their velocity

Mute: the Mute Sequencer is part of the Gate Sequencer and mutes the selected step

Gate Time: the Gate Time Sequencer determines how long a note is held. Notes can be held up to four times the duration of a step

Octave: this sequencer moves the pitch the pitch by +/- 2 octaves

Pitchbend: here you can select from 12 pitch bend figures to be engaged

Chord: a chord is generated using the current note in the pitch sequencer as the root note. Six Variations and four wrap-arounds for major and minor plus six special chords like diminished and augmented are available

Break: this sequencer lets you set a multi-trigger at 2, 3, or 4 times the normal sequencer speed, playing the current scale up or downwards or just repeating the current note. 18 breaks are available

Random: each sequencer step can be replaced by a random value. Minor and major chords can be individually randomized to maintain the harmonic structure
Action Section
Gatetime: the Gate Time can be increased or decreased, depending on how long you press the button

Velo Gate: the note will only play if it is above the selected velocity threshold

Looper: the selected part of the sequence will be looped

Slowdown: the sequence slows down until it come to a dead stop

Retrigger: re-trigger the sequence by re-trigger pressing the button; upon release, the sequencer continues at its normal position

Halftime: the sequence will play at half speed

Octave up: the sequence will play one octave higher as long as you press the button

Mute: mutes all data output
Internal synthesizer to create patterns on the fly
