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!

Good basic sequencer
mybud, 05.12.2018
I've been using this as a gate/cv controller with various basic oscillators to experiment with generating minimalistic loops à la Reich, Terry Riley, and so on. For such a small unit, it has some well thought out choices, such as variable duty cycles for generating brief percussive attacks at the lowest settings which can then be lengthened for more melodic possibilities. A small gripe is regarding the battery life, which is a bit too brief for my taste. This is only a potential problem in a live setup without a computer, since the USB option eliminates this problem entirely. The control knobs feel a trifle flimsy, but with due care in handling this shouldn't present a problem.
