For a simple stepsequencer:
Just fill a array with (pitch) values and advance every N midi clock pulses
to the next array position.
As for the Accent and Slide functions.
Accent; a function to emphasize the notes on that step.
On analogue sequencers this is just a extra trigger signal.
Most often accent is used to increase the volume for notes that should have
But you may want to consider alternate destinations for accent too like,
- filter cutoff (opening the filter when there is a accent),
- filter resonance (can be quite nice IMO),
- envelope attack rate,
- trigger a alternate or extra sound (the accent/percussion function on
(drawbar) organs do this, although on organs this function is not sequencer
Glide/Slide/Portamento; think Hawaii-guitar.
Don't retrigger the Envelopes, but slowly "slide" to the new pitch.
