tiny and packed with features

26.10.2016
I bought this sequencer to give me the option of a 16 note sequence and to easily link my modular system to my old Korg MS-10. I have not been disappointed.

The options for voltage output are great with different ranges and various selections for quantizing. The choices of sequencer mode I've found I use as a performance control to vary a repeating sequence or create interesting rhythms. I sometimes use it simply as a trigger sequencer and it is quick and easy to get something going. Lots of lovely lights to let you know where you are! Outputs to MIDI as well.

The only downside is the tiny control knobs that I find I often have to reset after the unit has been off, and for that reason alone I have knocked a star off handling. But considering the power in such a small box and that the original Korg SQ-10 now sells for about ten times the cost of this, I suppose that is a compromise I'm willing to make.

I'd highly recommend this as with lots of the new Korg wee boxes it is LOTS of fun!

Excellent little gadget!

Andro, 17.10.2015
I really got to like SQ1. What I like the most is the linear pitch just like it used to be on classic vintage sequencer.

Pitch imperfections (or pitch fluctuations, or micro tuning) is very important aspect of music articulation and I wonder how synth manufacturers cannot grasp it. For example Arturia with their Beatstep, my second sequencer. Now that I got SQ1 I hardly touch it.

Another thing, SQ1 is two channel, a huge advantage in itself.

The only complaint is the programming and the manual. It made me scratch my head more than once, especially setting the clock divisions and gate polarity. Korg should give it more attention and at least provide some more tips and FAQ's.
