Numerology 3 is a music sequencing and audio plugin environment which uses an approach to electronic music composition based on modular step sequencing.
With version 3 Numerology now comes in two flavors: a Standard Edition for who wants an economical step sequencing addition to their studio, and a Pro version with advanced features for users "looking to make Numerology a cornerstone of their compositional workflow." Another addition is an AudioUnit version of Numerology that allows users of supported hosts to add advanced step sequencing to their DAW-based workflow.
Both the Pro and SE versions of Numerology 3 come with synthesis options for the built-in sample-based SampleSynth and DrumKit modules. These modules now include a multi-mode filter, 2 AHDSR envelopes, a beat-synchronized LFO and a modulation matrix. Complementing these additions are a new set of built-in audio effects, including tempo-synchronized delays, multi-mode filtering, and a ring modulator.
Two new features in Numerology 3 is designed to expand user options for storing and sharing presets and patterns, the Stack Library and Module Presets. The Stack Library is a new centralized location for storing part-oriented sequencing and synthesis setups. The Numerology 3 download comes with a library of stacks that include demo tracks, examples and core sequencing templates. In addition, the new module preset function in Numerology 3 is designed to allow users to store and load settings for any module.
Numerology 3 requires an Apple Macintosh computer running Mac OS X version 10.4.11 or later, 2GB or RAM, and a screen resolution of 1024x768 or higher. For MIDI-only use, a CPU speed of 1Ghz or more is adequate, but for AU hosting and audio synthesis, an Intel dual-core processor is recommended. The Numerology AU requires an Apple Macintosh computer with an Intel CPU running Mac OS X version 10.5.8 or later and is currently only supported for Ableton Live (version 8), Apple Logic (versions 8 or 9) and MOTU Digital Performer (version 6 or 7). More hosts should be added soon.
