16 steps and 64 patterns of MIDI sequencing packed into a box half the size of your phone the mini.SEQ from B&C Audio is a little box of grooves.
B&C Audio has been making a few noises on YouTube and Instagram about their first product – mini.SEQ. Only a few noises though, not enough to generate an actual website or give too many details away but the introduction video is pretty cool and tells you almost everything you need to know.
It’s a MIDI sequencer with MIDI and analogue sync in/out on the back. It can record 16 steps in 8 bars in up to 64 patterns for instant recall. Everything is controlled by a single knob which feels a bit limiting but looks like it’s capable of getting to all the required parameters without too much fuss. It can output notes with velocity and a MIDI CC number for modulation.
It has a random mode to generate patterns where you can specify a centre note and a spread to contain the randomness. You can copy and paste patterns and add fills.
It’s also polyphonic with up to 4 voices. There’s MIDI input on the back so I imagine it can record MIDI coming in via that port although they haven’t mentioned that yet otherwise it could get laborious entering 4 notes per step with a single knob.
The mini.SEQ is looking great, seems like a lot of fun and could be a useful box for all sorts of applications. The prototype renders on Instagram look pretty sweet.
No more information on price or availability at this time but check out their Instagram account for further developments.
Update: Their projected pricing is around €65 which is pretty darn excellent.
