For less, find an ASQ10 and an ASR10. that's a good sequencer and and a good sampler, and those pieces WILL let you make whatever you want, and have it sound good.

I know someone with an ASR-10.. it's pretty old,
Pongoid, though I realize that lots of people still use
it, and look for them. It does certainly has some nice
filters, and others available for a price (like Q and
resonance), but it doens't have/ won't support alot of
RAM (30 pin RAM is hard to find, too, I should know),
and unless it has the expensive SCSI card add-on, only
has a useless floppy.

Some poeple use it, probably because they've been using
for years and have banks and so faorth that they can't
live without.

Just my opinion... it does sound great and it very
versatile.

It's built-in sequencer is real-time only, and
therefo

MC-303 is not that bad, I made this track 2 years ago with only a mc-303 and one line of Rebirth's 303.
It was a lot of fun!

(click on the link to listen to the track)

fruityloops blows the pants of off an MC303. But really....how much do you need? if the beatles can record a hit album on a rooftop in the wind, you ought to survive with a drum machine and a computer.....

well he needs a sequencer, and is his pc gonna run tite and what about playing out?.. so a sequencer and a cheap sampler and one synth which accepts patch changes and has storage for sounds for a set - sorted.. oh, and a mixer and delay and reverb - so first you gotta decide, s/w or hardware sequencer...

well, if youve a soundcard with a synth in it you can try the 'demo's' and see if they run ok and even add some loops into the audio tracks... but sequencer is a tuff one cos still the manufacturers dont bring out any like they used to ...

why the hell cant someone make a sequencer with a disk drive, 16 mute buttons and loads midifiles from dos disks is beyond me.. it would sell absolutely shitloads.. perhaps we sould design one and market it... raise the capital etc... my old man can make all the case castings etc ready for vacuum forming or whatever process of moulding, so we'd need someone to design the board & os etc etc...

what about it peeps ?... the 'dancetech live playback sequencer' ideal for live gigs and super tite clock for mixing down - yeah !!!.... i'd want it in a thick plastic tablet case with rubber feet and made of some type of non-brittle plastic like a padded shell available in: camoflage, glow in dark, fluro orange or Fluro green, white, or yellow - a good scribble-strip for marking channels, led's for channel mute-button and activity led... plus 3, 4 or 6 assignable controllers on each strip... and a volume fader, plus a fader 'lock' button, and pan luverlee jubbleeee... plus a 'filter out controller data' switch for each channel so you can override controller moves on a track and go manual.

i like it ... classy cool and yet so easy to use

I KNOW.....!!!

how bout this ....
get your self a phat boy controller right ...
AND a P-mix controller....
Youve never heard of a p-mix controller?
it's a live controller for mixman.

ok get this ..
i'm told that logic audio has a fuction (touch something) that enable you to mute tracks on the fly for you keyboard...
i dont' know which keyboard so lets assume your computer keyboard
the p-mix is just a glorified computer keyboard, with big arcade style buttons and no problem with locked keys ever...
so if the logic audio timing is tight... then mute/unmute your midi tracks with the p-mix and fuck with them on the phat boy ...

ohh you wanted hardware ...shit
well that shot my ballon down..
but that's not a bad idea that.

MC-30 and ASR-10 old, but better than other. you can make any kind of track with that. That will work best. Try them
