The compact Korg SQ-64 Polyphonic Sequencer is the feature-packed hardware sequencer your synthesizer rig has been waiting for. Equipped with a 64-pad sequence matrix, the SQ-64 gives you four sequencer tracks to command your synths, drum machines, and Eurorack modules via Gate, CV, and MIDI. You can also use the matrix pads in keyboard mode to capture your playing in the sequence. Use it as the master clock for your synth rig, or sync it to your clock of choice via MIDI or audio sync. Whether you’re producing in your studio, or performing live onstage, the Korg SQ-64 Polyphonic Sequencer provides the hands-on, instrument-like experience that hardware sequencers excel at.
Four tracks of creative sequencing capability
As its 64-pad matrix suggests, the Korg SQ-64 Polyphonic Sequencer supports up to 64-step sequences across four tracks. The first three tracks support up to 8-note polyphony, with Mod, Pitch, and Gate outputs for each track. The fourth track is designed to be a monophonic 16-part sequencer, driving eight separate Gate outputs along with eight different MIDI notes — perfect for driving a drum machine or drum synthesis modules. So in total, you can send three polyphonic sequences to three different devices via MIDI or CV/Gate/Mod, plus a monophonic sequence with up to eight different MIDI notes to a MIDI device, plus a monophonic sequence with up to eight different parts sent out via Gate outputs. That’s a lot of creative potential for a compact hardware sequencer!
MIDI and modular connectivity
While the SQ-64 delivers the experience of a classic hardware sequencer, its ample connectivity is ideal for modern music production rigs. Two independent MIDI outputs allow you to connect your synths and drum machines, while CV outputs for Mod, Pitch, and Gate accommodate your modular synths and semi-modular gear. The CV outputs are designed to support common modular voltage standards, and they can even be biased for optimal performance with devices that require non-standard voltage.
