I notice that the new Alesis Micron will have a phrase sequencer.

What exactly is a phrase sequencer? Is it like a step sequencer that allows you to play a sequence of notes per step?

these are some quotes from synth having a phrase sequencer:
Quote:
..Phrase Sequencer where you can create and store up to 960 cool musical phrases, ready for instant playback at any time.

Quote:
..Phrase Sequencer for triggering complete musical phrases w/ a single key

Quote:
..The internal phrase sequencer, eight sample pads (64 banks) and the ability to resample with effects allows you to easily lay down and manipulate grooves as in the *****.

they sound pretty explanatory Very Happy

A phrase sequencer sounds pretty handy. I hope they will offer it for my Ion with a firmware update.

it's similar to a phrase sampler but with a KUI (keyboard user interface)

There's no way the Micron will have a phrase sampler.
It just doesn't have the architecture for it.
What they mean by phrase sequencer is probably a step sequencer, which is triggered and transposed by playing the keys. Possibly you could have different sequences triggered by different keys, but I wouldn't count on it.

Key transpose! The old Roland CSQ-100 and CSQ-600 had key transpose! Great fun!

Yes, that's the way the step sequencer on the Andromeda works.
e.g. if you hold down three keys, it will play all three transpositions of the sequence.
