almost ridiculously overexcited to have scored a very nice condition Yamaha QY700 … replete with the original printed manual (I do appreciate a nice printed manual) - and a universal power adapter.
going to sequence an OB6 with this beauty.
if only “going dawless” wasn’t such a trendy thing to do these days…
wanted a QY700 for a while now.
even though ableton (or any daw) is so great for the visual comprehension of say a 32 bar midi recording, and then the mouse is super easy for selecting blocks and moving them about.
and when in grid edit mode, playback must be stopped on the QY700.
but for all that i still believe this midi sequencer is a totally valuable songwriting instrument/tool. if only for the tightness of timing. and the old typewriter style keys are priceless
having two midi inputs and two midi outputs makes things very easy as regards integrating with elektron gear whilst also playing and sequencing a poly synth keyboard.
