Latronic Notron: Had this since '98, but only felt its full power when hooked up to my modular that I built several years later! Such a nice, ergonomic piece, 4 tracks, lots of note and cc-mangling controls. I can live with only 16 memory locations because it's mainly a tool for improvisation and exploration. Too bad they didn't have enough money to make the full-metal version of the Mk1 plastic one (instead of that square mk2 abomination Razz)

Yamaha RS7000: For full-on composition, I couldn't live without it. There are so many features crammed in every nook and cranny. Comprehensive midi-data jobs, powerful midi delay fx, editing, real-time remixing, etc.

Here's an older pic of the family (which has undoubtedly grown since then):

Ooh, that's right, Notron! Tom was nice enough to let me borrow one of his blue metal ones. It was very nice to use! I think I blocked it out of my mind because I knew it would be hard to find one... Laughing

Some day I hope to see the mark 1 in person so that I can take measurements and make a case, or at least a panel...

My favorite sequencer is contained within my Korg Microsampler.

You simply play your sequence on the Microsampler's keys, or on another keyboard via MIDI, and it quantizes and stores the sequence for playback on the Microsampler or any other MIDI instrument. For CV output I simply MIDI to the Microbrute, which converts to CV out.

Tempo is adjustable before and/or after recording. You select any number of bars, 1 - 99, to record/play before looping.

This unit is perfect for me because I create music by hand noodling. I just play around on some keyboard until I find something I like, then record it. But I'm not a very good keyboard player so these new bits can be rhythmically sloppy. I don't want to practice the bit because that disrupts the creative flow and I grow tired of the bit. Instead, I play it into the Microsampler, which plays it back rhythmically perfect for recording. Then on to the next bit.

My second favorite is the step sequencer on the Microbrute. It's just plain fun. It's too bad the Microbrute doesn't have MIDI out. (I've done a workaround using a Sonuus G2M audio to MIDI converter, but it's inconvenient.) And, once again, I have to "play" the notes on the keys to input to the sequencer. The "rest" button makes this sequencer rock.

I fully understand that these two sequencers are toy-like compared to most of the sequencers mentioned on this thread. But my whole rig is pretty toy-like and I like it.
