A powerful timeline

The Grid is perfectly adapted to create complete projects for a solo performance, a band, an interactive installation, or even to create a full score for a video using SMPTE synchronization with our new Video Player.
All racks can be triggered at a precise time and can last as long as you want. Each line has independent durations, and any of the controls can have an automation curve assigned them. Only current, grid-activated racks become visible. This means that your vision is not polluted by unnecessary items. Read More

They talk about us

“An open-ended production and performance environment for open-minded musicians, this one’s different, demanding and utterly delightful. Making music Usine Hollyhock II is a deep and deeply entertaining experience.”
Computer Music/ issue 220

“The fabulously-innovative Sensomusic Usine combines modular sound powers with multi-touch you can use on high-performance laptop/tablet hybrids.”
Peter Kirn,

“Usine Hollyhock is a mature project, with a GUI neat and pleasant to use ... Olivier Sens gave a personal color to his patches with a 3 stars audio engine for rendering ... was a great moment testing it and I can only urge you to do the same if you are looking for a high class modular environment.”
Christine Webster, Keyboard Recording

“What if your DAW were completely open-ended and modular, allowing you to send audio and control anywhere, and control from any device – including touch?”
Peter Kirn,
