The Tombola sequencer doesn’t really need much of a tutorial, but for those not yet familiar this new OP School video really shows how much fun you can have with creating random patterns. Use the coloured rotary encoders to change the Tombola rotation, gravity and more. It’s an interesting way to spice up a static composition.
There’s not a lot that Teenage Engineering hasn’t covered yet in their OP School, but the Pattern sequencer was one of the functionalities that was still missing a tutorial video.
