The René Cartesian Sequencer from Make Noise provides a whole new way of thinking about sequencing. It is designed with Cartesian character, meaning it is mapped out in two dimensions, rather than a single 8 or 16-step sequence that loops. This means the X and Y axes can be clocked independently, sending the sequence around the grid in different patterns depending on the timing relationship of both clocks. Because of this, sequences much longer than the 16-stages present on the René can be created. There are many built-in menu options that can be accessed with the exposed panel metal above the step buttons. These include skipped steps, pattern styles, quantization and logic operations. Not only can the René be sequenced, but it can so be played by pressing the exposed PCB buttons, making it a complex 16 note keyboard.
