Once the most sofisticated sequencer ever made. It could do everything, almost unlimited.

Today about a quarter century has passed since the QX1 was manufactured, and ofcourse much has happend with the technoly during that time.

But still QX1 is a very competent sequencer. And I have found out that different tools, such different sequensers, are different ways to make music, with different results. QX1 is a nice way to make music with today. And especial in companion with the TX816.

I bought my QX1 for $75 from a music store clearance sale. I used it to sequence a few songs, but as others have said, sequencing software on an IBM 286 can do more and faster, too. I don't ever want to get rid of it, though. It's an interesting chunk of MIDI history.

If your disk drive on the QX1 seems to have died, don't throw it away quite yet. Of course if you already considered it to be junk then yes go ahead.

I found a trick for getting the disk drive to work again!

If you find that the disk seems to be stuck when it is in the drive. Meaning: If you go to push in the release button on the drive and it won't release the disk.


Carefully with power off and power cable unplugged open the QX1

you will see the drive, remove the screen over the drive.

Now look at the release button and follow it into the QX1 until you see a spring that is parallel with the release are. Now to the right of the spring you'll see a brass that looks like a ramp. As you push the release are there is a small piece of metal that can no longer make it over the brass ramp. Careful push the small piece of metal up just enough so that it will clear the ramp. Now push on the release button it should now release the disk, The drive and the QX1 id ready for use once again!!! Good luck
