Far beyond basic step sequencing logic, the Shakmat Modular Four Bricks Rook brings a highly intuitive interface to all your rhythmic duties. It provides a diverse array of features including: CV addressable memory of 128 thirty-two steps tables where you can store your own sequences; precision timing to allow non–quantized/off-beat rhythms; an auto randomizer/pattern filler; and four modes defining the pad’s behaviour : play & record, recall patterns, play fills, or mute your sequences.


  • Variable length sequences (up to 32 steps)
  • Shift function scanning through different segments of the sequence
  • Non-volatile memory allowing to store and recall patterns (16 slots of 8 – 4 tracks / 32 steps – patterns)
  • Potentiometer and CV input for table addressing
  • Quantize function per track
  • Two playing buffers A and B
  • Play Mode allows to play and record your sequence on pads
  • Table Mode allows to read and load sequences stored in the non-volatile memory
  • Fill Mode allows to use the tables in a more dynamic way
  • Fill Mode allows to use the tables in a more dynamic way
  • Mute Mode allows to mute tracks and erase part of the sequences
  • Random generator allowing to automatically fill the sequence or create random sequences
  • Adjustable trigger length per track
  • Current state (buffers / rndm / pointed slots / trig length) storing
  • Factory tables including pre-programed beats and specials clock divisions such as triplet ones.
  • Elektron style push buttons
  • High quality metal potentiometer with double rubber injected knobs
  • Bi-polar (-5V – +5V) CV inputs
