This MIDI Effect Rack pushes back notes outside of the 3th and 4th octave back into octave 3 & 4. I originally designed it to work in conjunction with the amazing ML185 sequencer (M4L) and its killer randomization function.

Just put this rack after the sequencer. The sequencer's note output is then redirected/folded to octave 3 & 4 and brings more order in the randomization chaos. This way it's easier to come up with let's say a bassline/lead while using the randomization function.

This rack was so tedious and repetitive to make and I don't think there's a rack like this out there so I thought I'd share it.
