kind of… though theres a lot of overlap…
obviously the Torso is focused on a Euclidean/Generative approach, so if this is your primary use-case, then seems a strong contender.
Hapax, however, does also have a lot in this area, with both Algos and FX… but its taking a very different approach - also its v1 firmware, and we are promised more Algos, so I think its going to become stronger in this area.
and the Oxi similarly has randomisation features…
(and again is still in development, so perhaps more will come?)
but all take a rather different approach.
if I was just after generative, I think the TS-1 would be very temping.
as a mix, I think Hapax… but if you want something small/portable then perhaps TS-1/Oxi.
if generative is not your only requirement, there are so many other differences,
size, input/output, power, price…
@phading, yeah, Id throw Pyramid in the mix… Ive been pointing this out on the Hapax post.
there are some really good (used) deals on the pyramid, and indeed, in terms of features its still a top sequencer (esp, if you like polyrhythms) … and the Euclid function on the Pyramid is excellent. so on (used) price, its unbeatable at the moment
all that said, frankly all these sequencers are so powerful, I doubt they will hold any one back… I think in many cases, you might just have to approach it differently, but you’ll get to a similar result.
