Just curious to see how everyone else sequences their Voyagers. I'm thinking about expanding my modular system with a sequencer module, but need to wait a while before I make that investment.

Until then, I'm thinking about using something in the virtual realm. Have any of you had success with any plugins or DAW sequencers? What about MPCs or other synthesizers with on-board sequencers?

Numerology is what I used on a mac until I got the q119. There are alot of great midi sequencers out there on many platforms.

If you get a sequencer for the voyager, try to find one that will let you do skips.

Tell us about your modular!

Personally, when I want to sequence my "Midified' Minimoog D, I use an old Ensoniq SQ80 as a MIDI sequencer. I've found its user interface so straightforward and quick, so that I can spend all my rare creative moments concentrating on the music itself, and not fiddle around with convoluted devices or softwares to try to get the music out of my head and onto a medium as quickly as I can, before it eludes me. :mrgreen:

I also use a relatively easy audio recording software called Audacity on the Mac, to record directly the audio signals coming out of my analog synths into the line input of the Mac.

I essentially follow Bob Moog's philosophy, when he said that "simplicity elevates." :wink:
