Korg SQ-1 Analog Step Sequencer

More Views


Korg SQ-1 Analog Step Sequencer is a brilliantly compact model featuring 2 x 8 steps. Thanks to its array of connections, the SQ-1 can be connected to the MS-20 and a variety of other synthesizers. Regardless of whether you are using a vintage analogue synth or the lastest designs, both can be controlled from this single unit.

You can also switch between a variety of synthesizer modes and use the step buttons to create performances overflowing with spontaneity, just as when using a volca unit.


Flexible Sequencer Modes

You can run A and B following each other to function as a 16-step sequencer, ignore the order and make the steps play randomly, or use A and B to control different parameters as they run in parallel. This is all due to the SQ-1 which provides two channels (A and B) of 8-step sequencer that can operate consecutively, or be used in a variety of other modes. You can choose from a variety of modes to suit your needs, from simple sequences to complex changes.

Great Improvisatory Capability

You can utilise the MODE button to switch their function which opens up powerful possibilities such as allowing you to “perform” the sequence itself, as on a volca unit. The “Active Step” allows you to skip steps half-way through a sequence, and “Step Jump” lets you instantly play just the step that you press, producing irregular rhythms or effects that are reminiscent of short loops.“Slide” produces an effect in which steps are smoothly connected.

Durable and Lightweight

The SQ-1 showcases a compact and very sturdy sheet-metal body, that is full of great features. You'll love the sense of solidity. Handily, the model can function on USB bus power or two AA batteries.
