KORG SQ10 Analog Sequencer

"This Sequencer is excellent, more flexible than you may first think. You can make bizarre sequences with it and its mega fun to use. Made in Japan 1979. With original manual !!!!

The sequence can be any number between 1-12 steps long (24 if you couple A and B). It has three separate channels, so you can get 3 sequences running at once! Run three synths with a different sequence each, or use a channel to sequencer the filter of a synth etc etc. You can even sequence the speed of its clock so it speeds up and slows down as you want, it can drift out of time with your other gear the reset at what ever point you like so you’re back in sync!! It also has portamento for slides and an output for each step! And more…

It is a 240v ac 50/60hz Australian plug end machine. Serial number 151385

A very good old-school sequencer from Korg. Designed for the MS series synthesizers and using Korg's CV / Gate control the SQ-10 sequencer can really surprise you with some groovy basslines. Use the knobs to adjust and build up a sequence. Sure it's limited to 12 steps (with a max of 24) but when you hook that up to your MS-10, MS-20 or MS-50 you can get some pretty cool TB-303 like stuff happening. Because the SQ-10 outputs CV (Control Voltage) it can be connected to the Oscillators, VCF filters or LFO's of your MS synths for even cooler tricks. Using a CV / Gate converter allows you to use the SQ-10 with other Roland, Moog, Sequential and even MIDI synthesizers. It's definitely a fun instrument which allows you to program basslines like they did back in the early days!"

  1. Is this SQ10 for sale? I assume it is, but just randomly stumbled upon this page surfing the web to find me a SQ10 to buy. I am really really interested if that is the case, so give a shout to ups,
