What is DRG
DRG or Dual Rhythm Generator is a Max for Live device capable of generating clocks and rhythms that can be used witz k k I x xh analog synthX ~ [esizers and drum machines via control voltage. By2 ; R / % $ C using a combination of two clock generators and an optional boolean logic operator, DRG can generate anything from simple clock divisions to complex rhythms.
DRH v p R ]G is great for clocking analog seq| ( S m Tuencers, triggering envelopes, sequencing drum modules and etcT : E S B.

DRG requires an audio inte– s crface with DC-Coupled outputs or an Expert SleeF : w X * _ l apers ES-3 / ES-4 / ES-40 module.

The main parts of the DRG device are the two advanced clock generators.

MIDI Controlled Pres7 / L ] \ 9 Q Mets

The MIDI Controlled Presets section let’s you store 12 different presets and recall them using MIDI, meaning that you can recall these presets using a MIDI sequence or a MIDI contrl { Uoller.

The 12 preset slots can be accessed / recalled through the MIDI notes C3 to B3 and are represented by the virtual keyboard displayed on this section.
