Sequencing tools play a central role in our ability to create computer music. Despite their importance, there has been little structured analysis of how the characteristics of sequencers impact our ability to use them effectively. This paper addresses this through a new taxonomy for classifying sequencing tools. This taxonomy can be used to help us better understand the strengths and weaknesses of current sequencer tools, and suggest novel possibilities for future sequencers.
