Korg has temporarily dropped the price on their step hardware sequencer by 40%, down from $329 at its original listing.
The Korg SQ-64 Polyphonic Sequencer carries a 64-pad sequence matrix across four tracks. Each programmable button can control synths, drums and other instruments via Gate, CV and MIDI. The sequencer also has a keyboard mode for capturing live performances.
For live hardware setups, the SQ-64 acts as a main clock for synth rigs and can also follow another MIDI clock or through an audio sync. The first three tracks on the sequencer work as an eight-note polyphony with modulation, pitch and gating for each track. The fourth “D-Sub” track works as a 16-part sequencer, with eight different Gate and MIDI notes. Sequencing on the SQ-64 comes in several options: Reverse, Stochastic (Nonlinear), Random, and Bounce. Together, each track can uniquely have up to a 64-step length. Ultimately, the SQ-64 can save up to 64 different projects with 16 different patterns for each track.
The Korg SQ-64 runs for $199.99. The SQ-64’s price point is due to being sold as a single unit only. The DIN MIDI adapters and KA350 AC wall-wart power adapter are sold separately, or $217 as a bundle.
