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!

Veru useful little sequencer

zombie-function, 13.07.2018
Really great for sequencing your gear via CV. I use it in countless scenarios, from live beat making to melodies to sequencing visuals. Its USB midi lets you connect it to your PC/MIDI host, so that has endless possibilities as well. The chromatic modes are cool, and beautiful sequences come out of that. Its features for skipping steps and sequence-length-adjustment are also great for getting really weird stuff going. Ive seen this used in many modular setups during live performances. Syncing this with your PC or midi gear over USB has only worked one way for me (sequencer sends the clock, not the PC). Its a perfect easy-to-use starter sequencer if you don't have one in your rack yet. Small, sturdy, portable and cheap!
