Korg SQ-64 Step Sequencer is currently on sale for just $199 in the US

Korg has slashed prices on its SQ-64 sequencer. Regularly retailing for $329, this is currently on sale for just $199 – a saving of almost 40%.

After allowing US users have the Opsix synth for just $330 about 2 months ago , Korg is offering another great deal to US producers and musicians – this time on the SQ-64 sequencer .

The SQ-64 is a 4 x 64 polyphonic step sequencer. There are three melody tracks, each of which offers dedicated Pitch, Mod and Gate CV outputs or up to eight voices of polyphony when connected via MIDI (one Input and two Outputs).

On top of this, there’s a Drum/Sub track with 16 trigger outputs – eight CV gates and eight over MIDI – giving you 16 monophonic voices. Korg’s Audio Sync technology, which offers pulse-based clocking to many of its instruments, is also supported.

When it comes to the actual sequencing, you have deep randomisation options. You can vary the next step from four possibilities within your sequence, and randomise an entire sequence or just the first step. You can also reverse the sequencer play order.

Further variation can be introduced by morphing control voltages, and there’s also an arpeggiator.

There’s plenty of visual feedback, as well: each of the 64 matrixed backlit step pads has graduated LEDs to indicate control level, and there’s an OLED screen so you can see what’s going on at any given time. You can also use the pads as a keyboard and play and record in real-time.

The SQ-64 has 64 project memories, with a project comprising those three melody tracks and a Drum/Sub track. A project can have 16 patterns, with each of these having up to 64 steps.

We view SQ-64 “an intuitive and very musical bit of gear and that should stand the test of time,” and at just $200, it could be a very good investment indeed.

What they say about it:

“For a limited time, we’re dropping the price on SQ-64 from $329.99 to $199.99 (US ONLY)!

That’s a 40% savings on Korg’s 64 step hardware Sequencer!

Korg’s SQ-64 offers:

  • A fun sequencing hub in a user-friendly interface
  • Powerful hands-on control for modular, synth, and DAW users
  • Keyboard mode so you can play in real time
  • Connectivity to drive 3 melody tracks and 1 drum track”

Be quick, though – the previous Reverb warehouse deal on the Opsix sold out quickly, so this one might not be around for long.
