Author cheapest/best eurorack sequencer
marlgrey
hi i'm pretty new to this daunting world of modules: i currently have a Doepfer dark energy II, FOH plague bearer rev4 and the Bubblesound VCOb. I'm currenty using ableton to send midi to the doepfer, however i'm massively interested n the idea of a physical sequencer! can anyone point me in the right direction? [s][/s][s][/s][s][/s]

Cheapest and best aren't likely to be the same thing.

Inexpensive:
The Pittsburgh sequencer is $140 and has 8 steps.

I personally like the SEQ-02 for lots of functionality packed in a small space for a good price.

This 8 stepper's been floating around on eBay for a while. $150

Or you could spend a little more and get Rene! $500

I've got a Moskwa - a little pricey for 8 steps, but I like the circle motion and direction changes. $340

Hope this helps!

i just got the pittburgh sequencer because i hadnt much more to spent.
I really like it and it does what its build for.
I like the transpose in combo with my pressure points, which I now can use for something else thant just sequencing.

I'm selling a cheap SQ8 in the BST forum! It's peanut butter jelly time!

I personally use a MFB urzwerg... it's a stand alone unit but works very well with eurorack setup and it's very cheap for the functions (8x4, pendulum mode, random mode, slew, quantizer, gate lenght, number of steps...)
the only problem is the external clock in which works at 6 ppq (real annoying but solvable with a clock divider)... it works very well with internal clock or midi sync

Probably the best solution is SQ8 used!My favorite sequencer is A-155 with the expansion.A good solution would be a sequencer that could be expand for more steps.

Doepfer A155 is a great sequencer and very, very versitile.

The above mentioned Analogue Solutions SQ8 is a nice basic sequencer

I've got a moskwa and really enjoy it. Like said above, not the cheapest considering it's 8 steps but you can chain to another one and the rotary display really works for me.

I just bit the bullet and got a Rene as my first sequencer. I could not be happier with my decision. I can easily get it to work like a linear, 16 step sequencer, and it can also go in some really amazing, unpredictable places. It sometimes feels like a collaborator more than a module.

I'm a sequencer junky.

The FutureRetro Orb is a blast, especially if you can find one used for around $300. It is a standalone unit, but it sends MIDI and CV. It has 16 steps and is easy to program. It can also store 16 x 16 patterns and has a song mode.

As for Eurorack, the Rene is pretty wild. The Intellijel Metropolis also looks interesting, but it hasn't been released yet.

If I had the money, I would buy a Klee sequencer. Unfortunately, the kits are unavailable and they go for about $900 or so prebuilt. Synthcube is taking orders.

If you are handy with a soldering iron, the Turing machine and its add on modules are great for melody and basslines. It helps if you pair them with a quantizer like uScale, so that adds to the price.

The ModCan sequencer looks nice, but programming it is similar to Ableton and other DAWs.

I have a Darktime but it is pretty pricey for 16 steps.

As some have noted, MFB is a great value and I am probably going to buy one of their drum sequencers shortly.

I don't know if I would go with 8 steps. The Moskwa looks cool but by the time you put two of them together with an interface, you're looking at serious money.

You might also look at the Elektron Analog 4. You get four very different sounding analog synths plus a sequencer with two CV outputs.

If you are interested in the Klee or the Metropolis, there are software packages that do the same thing for 40 bucks a crack. They both have functioning demos to play with.

^ with the a4 you get to do whatever you want with the 4 tracks, you arent limited to just 4 sounds. and you get 4 cv/gate outs not 2. a bit more expensive than a sequencer module but its a great synth that you can use to sequence your euro (up to 64 steps too!). plus you can run your euro into the a4's inputs for further processing
wxyz
It's not Euro, but how about a MicroBrute?
ersatzplanet
The Doepfer is good bang-for-the-buck sequencer and most of the 8-step ones out there are very similar. The best ones are costly and if you have a grand to spend the best I think is the Division6/Mattson SQ816. 8/16 step with a built in quantizing and MIDI out and tons of hidden features. Lots of playback modes and skiff friendly.

+1 the A4 is fantastic. Sequencer, envelopes and LFOs. I use it to sequence the modular and also process it with the A4 inputs. I think the FX sound great even if you are limited to chorus,delay,reverb.

Since you didn't toot your own horn, I'll throw in a recommendation for the SynthWerks PGM 4x4. Pair it with an A-151 and you have a relatively inexpensive basic 16 step CV sequencer, and you can also do some very cool stuff with in in programmer mode.
kwaidan
I messed up with the A4. Barto caught me. What I meant was you could control two synths with the four CV outs, sending pitch and gate to each slaved unit. (There are two CV outs on the back of the unit, but each jack can send two CV signals.)

As someone else noted, you can control LFOs, envelopes, and such. I also failed to mention that it comes with a tiny keyboard and its sequencer can go up to 64 steps. With the sequencer, you can set a different length for each track to make polyrhythmic chaos.

My biggest complaint with the A4 is that it doesn't have separate outs. It would also be nice if it transmitted MIDI.

As grimley noted, the FXs are pretty nice.

maybe?
$195, lots of interesting features, and small footprint.

The mighty Z8000 can swallow patch cables like a porn star!
Not cheap though.... w00t

Another vote for the Rene. While it's not the cheapest it's deffo one of the most bang for the buck if you consider all the features. Playing the access mode "live" is great, and in some way similar to the Moog 960 skip imho.

mfb is within the cheapest, i ve the seq 02 it s cool and small, not perfect,
but it s ok i my setup,
i like very much the turing machine,(random seq) it s so simple to use and makes great sequences!!
i ve two of them , one in each system.
