"Nice quirky Bass Synthesizer - like somehow the Roland 303...

A combination of synthesizer and sequencer. Performs bass synth functions similar to the later Roland TB-303.[20] Originally released in 1980 by Hillwood under Firstman brand, before Multivox released it in 1981.
MX-8100 Sequencer - Digital keyboard sequencer with up to 4 patterns

The SQ-01 is a microprocessor-controlled sequencer with an onboard monophonic synthesizer and a single-octave, 13-note (C-C) capacitance (touch) keyboard painted onto its main panel. It was marketed mainly by Multivox, who frequently distributed other companies' instruments.

The synthesizer section has knobs for tune, fine tune for the single VCO, and for cutoff frequency and resonance for the filter. The envelope generator can be set ASR or AR with knobs controlling the release time and sustain level. There is also a master volume knob for the synthesizer."
