Korg SQ-10 Analog Sequencer

Korg SQ-10 Image

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. Three channel output allows pitch, tone color and timing variation. 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 also be connected to the Oscillators, VCF (filter) 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 just like they did back in the early days!

One of these was used, along with an MS-20, to create all the synth parts on the classic DAF albums "Alles ist gut", "Für immer" and "Golde und Liebe".

One clever trick is to take one of the channel outputs back into the VC clock and get some complex ryhtms: I use it in conjunction with a MAQ16/3 and a MIDI-CLK interface to get some good polyrhtyms going. I like the SQ-10 a lot but I wish it had a quantised output and V/oct as well as Hz/V.
