Black Case MIDIBOX Sequencer V4

via this auction

custom-built MidiBox Seq V4 sequencer.

Specs below. Note these are DIY only. Commercial release is forbidden by MIDIBOX. Typically you will find one-off builds for sale here and there for those not into DIY. This would be one of them. I haven't seen this particular design before. It reminds me of the new Roland Jupiter-Xm.

2 DIN MIDI In ports
6 DIN MIDI Out ports
USB MIDI with up to 4 ports
Green LCD display
Custom aluminum case and panel
optimized for live playing and editing
intuitive user interface with flat menu hierarchy, wide screen display (2 * 2x40 = 160 characters) and 16+1 rotary encoders with menu page dependent "soft function".
multiple MIDI Out ports (up to 12) for reduced MIDI latency
up to 4 MIDI In ports (e.g. for separated MIDI clock and MIDI keyboard inputs)
USB interface which supports USB MIDI protocol to send events more than 100 times faster
optional Ethernet interface for sending/receiving OSC packets (or MIDI events embedded into OSC packets)
every parameter can be modified in realtime w/o affecting the sequencer timings
one sequencer pattern consists of 4 independent tracks
four patterns can be played at the same time -> makes 16 tracks
each track consists of up to 16 layers which can be assigned to various parameters (e.g. Note/Velcity/Gatelength/Chords/CC/PitchBender/Delay/Probability/Roll)
Transpose and Arpeggiator function
Force-to-Scale function with 166 predefined scales
Track directions: Forward/Backward/PingPong/Pendulum/Random Dir/Random Step
Track direction progressive parameters (Step Forward, Jump Back, Repeat, Interval, Skip, Repeat)
free adjustable clock divider for each track. Supported timebases 1..256, normal and tripled
available length for every track: 1-256 steps
with 384ppqn resolution, 256th notes can be played
loop point within track
step events can be triggered multiple times (up to 4 times per step) with a delay value of 1-31 to realize drumrolls, ratterbeats, flams...
8 trigger layers for Gate/Skip/Accent/Glide/Roll/Random Gate/Random Value/No Fx
various Groove styles (shuffle/inverted shuffle/...) + customizable Groove Templates (Delay/Length/Velocity)
Humanizer function (random modification of note/velocity/gatelength)
Pattern Morphing, controllable in 128 steps with a Modulation Wheel
Echo Fx with Repeat/Delay/Feedback/Note increment/Gatelength/Delay parameters
LFO Fx with different waveforms, synchronized period length, adjustable reset point, phase, OneShot mode. Assignable to Note/Velocity/Length/CC
Note Limiter Fx
Manual step triggering
Step and Realtime Record function
Copy/Paste/Clear function
Scroll and Step Move function
Random and Euclidean pattern generator
Undo function
parameters of multiple steps can be changed relatively and absolutely with a single rotary encoder
parameters of multiple tracks can be changed the same time with a single rotary encoder
Tracks and parameter layers can be muted
Accent/Slide/CC sequences
inbuilt MIDI mixer/controller with 128 free definable mixer maps
inbuilt MIDI router
virtual "Loopback port" for Master/Slave tracks
split function for Transposer/Arpeggiator
up to 32 optional CV outputs and gates for analog gear
CV outputs can also be accessed from MIDI In (-> replaces a CV interface)
64 optional 1 mS drum trigger outputs
8*128 patterns are stored on SD Card
128 mixer maps are stored on SD Card
pattern sets can be looped and chained in song mode
phrase mode which allows to switch between the 16 predefined pattern sets (for fills/breaks/chorus, etc...)
pattern switching can be synchronized to the measure
MIDI Remote functions
2.5-300 BPM (MIDI clock master)
external sync (MIDI clock slave)
DIN sync output for controlling vintage sequencers
works with 16x MIDI clock resolution (384 ppqn)
several hardware options (e.g. a 64 Button/Duo-LED matrix)
details and demo samples in the User Manual
DIY ONLY!!! (commercial release neither planned, nor allowed!)"
