genoQs Nemo

More info is now available on the genoQs website.

"Nemo is a high-end MIDI step sequencer, adding portability to the highly acclaimed functionality and user friendliness of Octopus. It is in many ways an Octopus in disguise, and one that feels equally well in a backpack or on your lap!

It features the same sequencing lighthouse features that Octopus users have enjoyed for years, including polyphonic steps, self-modulating and cross-modulating sequences, freely editable musical scales, user editable runtime directions, full-scale MIDI recording, and much more.

Nemo’s tactile and visual feedback, as in Octopus, is a physical experience so typical for traditional musical instruments. You know already that music is about your body as music is being felt, heard and played with Nemo. And the numbers behind it all.. no display? Well, do you really care? Yes, computers love them. We love light, color, and most of all music!"


  1. not sure care for the oval shape, unless it comes with a guitar strap!

  2. actually, the more i think about it...
    move the step buttons onto a fretboard thingie, and shrink the main body a bit..
    that would be pretty interesting on stage, especially with some sorta early brian eno-ish costume.

  3. If it's on your lap, you can set your coffee mug on the extra space.
    All the extra room on my Octopus is covered with taped notes for all sorts of functions. It looks like you could set an Evolver, or the new little waldorf box on the side space which would be cool.

  4. Looks nice but i'd rather have an octopus.
    Much more tracks and much more control.

  5. I think the trade-off here is legit to keep some hands-on control. You could probably carry this on a plane in your backpack. I'd never travel with the Octopus. It's huge and I'd be too scared something would happen to it. Any of you who travel with gear know that even the best flight cases don't seem to keep stuff from getting trashed eventually.

  6. I just wish there was a place near Portland, OR I could try these out to see if they would even be useful to my setup!

  7. I'm on the preorder list NOW, hooray
