Korg SQ-8




Quote
The SQD-1 is a classic and easy to use stand-alone sequencer. It has 15,000-note capacity and 2 tracks. Your song is created by bouncing down between these two tracks as you go. Real-time and step recording is available as well as pretty in-depth and precise editing of events. It has a built-in 2.8" disk drive that can store up to 30,000 notes of data. (1986)

I recently got one of there second hand. It's fairly big, and primitive. Just got it in the door, so have not had time to explore it thoroughly yet. Main drawback of it is that it uses Quick Disks, and has limited note memory (15 000). This maybe not be to bad, as there is supposedly possibility of saving data via midi to computer.
It only have two tracks where one is full (16 midi channels) and the other the sub is limited to 1 midi channel. Method of operation is that you record until you are satisfied on the sub track, then "bounce" it over to the main full track. Nice thing about it is that it has an analog button for adjusting the tempo of the machine. Will report back when I have had time to get deeper into it. So far it has a nice primitive digital impression.

im wondering if this device can be used to convert between 24ppq + 48ppq (korg vs roland Din Sync)
as it has MIDI in/out aswell as DIN sync in/out

can this be used in the place of an SBX?

my reason of interest is ive been offered a korg kpr-77 for trade
