Work Smarter, Not Harder


Chaser has room for unlimited sequences. Well, there is a limit, but it’s very unlikely you’ll run into it.

The Sequence Menu

You can see all your sequences in the Sequence menu. Chaser will start you off with one sequence. Hit the + button add another one.

You can change the order of sequences by dragging them by the three-striped-hamburger button. Hold down ALT while dragging to create a copy. Sequences can be renamed in place by double clicking on the name in the list. Delete a sequence by hitting the big X button the right.

Tip! To quickly move between sequences, use the up and down arrows. Hold down ALT and press up and down to quickly remove and add new sequences.

The Sequencer

In the bottom of the screen, you will find the sequencer. The sequencer shows the steps of your active sequence.

Sequence control

Just like in the Sequence Menu, here you can also rename the sequence to make it easier to remember which one is which. Switch between sequences by hitting the forward and backward button like a CD player from the 90s. Quickly jump to a sequence by directly entering a value in the number box in front of the name. 

Step control

Each sequence can have between 1 and 1024 steps. You add and remove steps with the + and – buttons, or directly setting a specific amount in the number box. You jump to a step by clicking on it, or you can hit the left and right arrow keys to go to the previous and next steps.

Tip! Hold down ALT and hit left and right to quickly remove and add new steps.

Copying steps

By dragging one step to another, you can copy and paste steps.

By dragging one step to another and holding it, you can multicopy a step to every other xth step. So for instance, step 1 will copy to step 5, step 9 and step 13. This is useful for making odd/evens or repeating patterns.

Fill / Fill Ping-Pong and Clear

It’s best to make sequences with the same amount of steps as much possible, to prevent big changes in visual tempo when switching sequences in Resolume. To help with this, you’ll find three buttons to the left of the first step.

The -> button takes whatever steps you have filled and copies them repeatedly to fill the sequence. So on a sequence set to 16 steps and where the first 4 steps are filled, hitting -> will fill out the sequence as follows: 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4, creating 4 perfect loops.

The <-> button does the same, but fills the sequence in ping-pong mode. So on a sequence set to 16 steps and where the first 5 steps are filled, hitting <-> will fill out the sequence as follows: 1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2, creating 2 perfect ping-pong loops.

The X button is a quick way to clear the current sequence and start again.

Wait! I still have questions!
