It’s like intellijel Metropolix for norns. 🤖❤️
All functionality and terms are directly adopted from metropolix. If you’re not familiar with it, please have a look at the metropolix manual or do some binge watching on yt. And, if you’re looking for a nice and powerful eurorack sequencer, consider buying it of course. :)
The screen shows a simple representation of the pulse count matrices of the two tracks. The selected loop range, as well as the currently playing pulse is being highlighted. The dots in the middle show the selected octave ranges.
Beneath every stage you can see a symbol, representing the gate type.
The bottom row shows the currently played note and octave on the left, the clock division in the middle and the playback order on the right. A line beneath the matrix indicates the currently selected track and the selected loop range.
In the top right corner, you can see the play state, the top left corner shows the tempo and a little dot to indicate if the sequencer is synced externally.

The grid layout of metrix is strongly influenced by skylines and Kria. 🙏
Use the first row to select track 1 or 2.
[shift] while selecting to mute/unmute a track.
Use the second row to set the loop’s start and end points:
[shift]and tap a single stage to skip that stage. One stage must remain active.
In the bottom left corner, you can choose among the following pages:
In the bottom and top right corner, the
[mod] keys are located.
Hold these keys for secondary functions and shortcuts.
[shift] key to switch to the secondary functions of a page.
More on that on the corresponding sections. Also:
||Mute / unmute tracks 1 and 2|
||Skip the selected stages. One stage must remain active and cannot be skipped.|
||Randomize the basic values related to the selected page|
||Set all stages to the selected value. Use the shift key additionally to access the secondary functions.|
||Set loopy’s start and stop to all stages|
||Randomize all possible params. This can lead to unpredictable results.|
||Set loopy’s start and stop to all stages and activate all of them|
||Randomize all possible params related to the selected page|
[shift]to access the matrices for ratchets (top) and probability (bottom).
[shift]to access the matrices for accumulating transposition (top), slide on/off and transposition direction up/down/freeze (bottom).
[shift]and selecting on of the 64 preset slots on the top.
[mod]and selecting a preset slot.
Connect crow to connect metrix to your eurorack system:
Connect your MIDI device using the corresponding param. Track 1 defaults to MIDI-Channel 1, Track 2 defaults to MIDI-Channel 2. The Channels can also be assigned in the params.
