Korg has announced the SQ-64, which they describe as an incredibly powerful and compact Polyphonic Step Sequencer with amazing hands-on intuitive controls and deep editing options to give you all the flexibility and sequencing power needed for all your musical projects.
A spokesperson told us, "There's nothing that offers the combination of CV control, MIDI & Audio sync, and polyphonic multitrack sequencing that Korg's SQ-64 does. Compact as it may be, it gives you three tracks, each with dedicated Pitch, Mod, and Gate output, plus a fourth Drum-Sub track with a total of 16 triggers; eight gates and eight over MIDI. Each of the 64 step buttons uses graduated LEDs to show you exactly what's going on in your track, and a crisp OLED screen gives you an at-a-glance look at details. It's all packed into a rugged aluminum case roughly an inch thick for durability and portability - every step of the way. Whether you are into Analog synths, Eurorack semi-modular synths, Digital drum machines, or do everything on your DAW with digital plugins, the SQ-64 will give you instant and precise hands-on control of each and all of these."
