Analog sequencers

Post by b3groover » Fri Jul 10, 2009 4:57 pm

I'm jonesin' for a real analog sequencer, preferably something new but if it's old and very reliable that's fine, too. The options seem limited. There's the Oberkorn from Analogue Solutions, the Q960 from Synthesizers.com (I don't have a modular, but I supposed I could mount it in it's own custom made case with a psu), and the one from Doepfer.

Any suggestions? The one from MFOS looks nice and I don't mind soldering. I'm thinking that might be the way to go.

If you don't mind soldering a shieeeetloads of wires then go for the MFOS. Then you can make your own sexy pimp-case.

Anyone else? Are there some older models that are worth seeking out? Thanks!

Analog Systems RS200 looks very interesting.

Yes it does. Any price info? Can't seem to find any other info outside the AS website.

It cost $735 at Big City Music, and €548 at Modular Square.

Are digital sequencers with 'analog interface' (like the Doepfer MAQ 16/3) an option for you?

Also, are you aware that the analog sequencer (module) itself may not be enough, as you probably will need sequencial switches, clock dividers, quantizers, multiples, etc?

Anyway, the MFOS is indeed a good option. =P~ (I wish I could handle the electronics... :( )

Th Q119 form synthesizers.com, quite different from the Q960 and less expensive. You can make a cabinet for one of those sequencers they are awesome

In electronic music, sequencers are as important as synths, they all modify your composition and playing
