Korg SQ-64 Poly Sequencer
Korg SQ-64 is an incredibly powerful and compact polyphonic step sequencer with amazing hands-on intuitive controls and deep editing options to give you all the flexibility and sequencing power needed for your musical projects. With its 64-step pad matrix, crystal-clear OLED display, sturdy and elegant aluminum body, a wealth of connections and a variety of modes and features, SQ-64 will become the centerpiece of your music studio, providing total and seamless control over all your instruments so you can focus on what matters most: your music.
- Four-part note/modulation CV/gate sequencer
- Drum sub-part provides 8 parts of CV and 8 MIDI notes
- 3 × pitch, gate and mod out for each part A–C
- MIDI I/O/O (2 × dedicated outs)
- 1/8" audio sync I/O
- 64 LED-backlit soft touch buttons
- Project memory: save and recall all your sequences
- Keyboard mode: play and record in real time
- Supports all standard voltages and can be biased as well
- All-aluminum chassis
Despite its compact size, SQ-64 has unparalleled connectivity and will allow you to easily control, connect and make the most of all your analog and digital gear, with MIDI in (×1) and out (×2) and USB Micro-B. The 1/8" sync in/out connections will allow you to seamlessly control all your other Korg gear, such as the Volca synthesizer series, Minilogue, Monologue, Minilogue XD, Prologue and many others.
Each of the Melody tracks (×3) has 16 patterns of up to 64 steps each and the Drum track (×1) has 16 sub-tracks, also with up to 64 steps each; these patterns and tracks can be played, chained and edited in a variety of ways. Melody tracks and patterns can be edited in several modes (gate, pitch, modulation) so you can alter the information sent by SQ-64 on each of these steps in many interesting ways. The Drum track trigger outputs can be fine-tuned to match the polarity and voltage of your connected device(s).
Whether you are into analog synths, eurorack modular synths, digital drum machines, or you do everything on your DAW with plug-ins, SQ-64 will give you instant and precise hands-on control of each and every one.
SQ-64 has 64 LED-lit step button pads that not only let you see the whole picture but also allow for super-fast and satisfactory editing via its encoder knobs and dedicated mode buttons. Each step has graduated lighting; the higher the modulation value, the stronger the button lights up to give you a clear overview of what's going on in your sequence.
The OLED display is crystal clear, bright and visible from any angle, so you can have access to all the information you need whether you're making music at home, in the studio or playing live.
The 3 melody tracks include a modulation output, so every step on your sequence can be creating complex modulations on your gear of choice, greatly expanding your options and possibilities for sound creation. SQ-64 makes it easy to create polyphonic chord patterns, melodies, complex polyrhythms and modulations on the fly and record them as data on each of the 64 project slots available.
The 64-pad matrix can be also be used as a keyboard, allowing for several layouts to be used for maximum flexibility (several scales can be assigned to any of these and a number of other parameters can be easily changed).
- Keys: traditional piano layout
- Isomorphic: the notes are displayed symmetrically in rows and you can easily transpose the same chord pattern up and down without changing its shape
- Octaves: one scale displayed in 3 different octaves on each row
With its powerful built-in arpeggiator you can easily bring to life and create interesting patterns out of any of your soft synth plug-ins, analog or digital synths for immediate inspiration. Break free with 4 alternative sequence playback modes: reverse, bounce, random and stochastic can be selected independently and on the fly to each track to add variety. All of your patterns can also be freely chained and looped, making this the ultimate device for live performance.
SQ-64 is housed in a highly portable and elegant-yet-robust solid aluminum body that will provide years of reliable service. Powered through USB or external 9V DC adapter (sold separately), a choice of power options offer both versatility and flexibility.
SQ-64 comes with a diverse variety of music software including Izotope Ozone Elements to create songs and master them using AI, Skoove to help you improve your keyboard playing skills, Reason Lite DAW software and software synths from Korg and other brands. In other words, the moment you get your hands on this sdequencer you'll have a variety of tools to help you take your music to the next level.
