Underwater sequencer

Post by synthetic88 » Mon Nov 12, 2007 8:57 pm

I was just checking out an underwater dive report when I saw this, no joke!

Apparently there's a Roland MSQ-700 60 feet underwater off Redondo Beach, CA. One hopes it was broken before it got there...

They are pretty much a boat anchor these days... Oh wait, I just bought one on eBay to go with my Juno 60...

The only thing I've ever found at Redondo Beach is pollution, cosplayers and dead...boots. The owner must've been having a tough time using it.

At first I thought I should go dive for it just for the h**l of it but then I remembered it's Redondo Beach. I would probably come out of the water with it mutated and fused to me. :P

that is really funny. if it was shallower, I would say someone should go get it-they just look cool to have, even if broken.

But 60 is pretty deep to go serachin for a beat sequencer!
Do you even post on vse bro?

On a rushed initial reading(and filling in the blanks) I thought you said "one hopes it's not broken before I get there" :lol:

I've often heard the saying about gadgets- throw it in the sea, if it floats, then it's worth keeping.

The synth world is so small, it'd be brilliant if someone here knows who owned this sequencer!
