Oberheim Mini Sequencer

Oberheim Mini-Sequencer Image

A simple 8 step sequencer that can control your Oberheim synth using CV / Gate. It was released back in 1979 and is very simple, designed for use with the classic 2, 4 and 8 voice Oberheim synthesizers. Outside of one of those synths this sequencer has limited appeal and today it is more of a novelty than a sequencer. Use it to create simple step patterns or loops, arpeggiate and sample and hold.

There is no MIDI available and you should be familiar with the types of CV/Gate before using this with your synths. The type of control voltage and gate trigger (CV/Gate) used by Oberheim is the V/Oct system which is compatible with Roland, ARP, Sequential and Moog synthesizers that also use CV/Gate for external control. To use the Mini Sequencer with MIDI synthesizers and sequencers, use a MIDI to CV/gate converter box.

Pretty certain that this unit was available (at least as part of a 4-voice or 8-voice keyboard system) well before 1979... We had Oberheim 4-voice and 8-voice at the Boston School of Electronic Music that featured this module at least two years before 1979...
