only in the MIDI realm, which leaves a h**l of a lot to be desired anyway so that's no big loss at allninja6485 wrote:Hardware sequencers in general have really fallen off.
au contraire, there are more analog sequencers around now than ever...at least 100 different ones can be bought new today, no joke. there is no wider variety of analog circuits in synths than there are in analog sequencers. and things they can do are so beyond the scope of MIDI it's not even funny (sequencer as a custom-waveshape VCO? no problem - just clock it at audio-rate and set each stage/step where you like to create the waveshape - viola, you've instantly transformed your sequencer into a variable-waveshaping VCO)
filters and VCOs are a distant 2nd & 3rd compared to the variability in viable analog sequencer designs; there are thousands, really. just ask any synth designer that truly knows their analog stuff.
