Pretty sure the seq resolution will be adequate. Modern producers need their trap rolls to be on point
With 2 gigs of RAM, I hope good round robin implementation will be onboard. Wouldn't say no to a looper either, although this eill never replace the for me.
As for the MIDI sequencer, all I care about is that duplicating loop lenghts on the fly work well. This is the biggest shortcoming of the 1k IMO, and prevents building longer loops/sections from 1-bar loop seeds on the fly without stopping.
The price is a mystery to me. It cannot be too cheap or it will piss on the MPC touch. But too expensive and it will stay on the shelves. Hmm
