Step Sequencer

Post by Rhizomorph » Fri Jun 06, 2008 12:27 pm

I have a TB-303 and a Novation Drumstation but I want to Sequence the Drumstation without the use of a computer. Iam looking for a TRstyle sequencer but I don't have much money, and sequenceing the Drumstation with my computer really slows down my workflow. Has anyone here any recomendations?

One of the Korg Electribes... maybe the ER-1. Whichever one has enough channels to run the amount of drums you want to. You can get them for just over $100 or so and they are dead simple to use and offer 4 bars of TR style sequencing.

+1 on Electribes for ease of use and pure fun.

TR-505 and TR-626 will both spit out midi and you should be able to find one cheap. +1 on the electribe

Some good recommendations there. I've used both the 505 and ER-1 for this. The 505 lacks the programming style of the 606/808/909, whereas the ER has it, but it's still a capable little machine for hardly any money.
