Best Sequencer for Multiple Moogerfoogers?

I purchased the EHX 8 Step sequencer which is great but I'd like to create a complex setup that runs multiple sequences in tandem to different 'foogers while *ideally* being able to save patches. Does such a thing exist? The best I've seen is a rack mount Oberheim sequencer that can run three different sequences at once but offers no patch saving (and runs $700)
Surely the best answer isn't to buy 7 or 8 EHX sequencers and sync the midi clocks for each?!

That looks like it'd work!
I guess it'd be too much to ask to find something aesthetically similar to my Moog stuff ;-)

Still not the right color scheme, but consider the Arturia BeatStep Pro:

Multiple sequences: check
Patch storage: check
Similar aesthetics to Moog: somewhat check

3.5mm jack connectors: check
over $700: check


Or did you mean this one:

?

Check out what jsharpphoto did with his where he posted a couple photos on page 81 of the "Post your latest purchase!!" thread:

Are there any news on the issue of BSP potentially frying a moog - including Moogerfoogers, which maximally takes 5v? I am getting a BSP, and would love to use the cvs with my Minitaur and MFs, but since the BSP goes to 10v, I would be rather safe than sorry.

It seems to me that people converge on the necessity of some degree of attenuation. Cables or DIY boxes. As I think e.g. KOMA cables appear a bit imprecise and as I am hopeless at soldering, I am lost. I am quite surprised that one cannot get small attenuator boxes commercially. There is of course ones like this http://www.doepfer.de/a1832.htm for Eurorack, but even though their price appears decent, it will bring along lots of extra costs, and I probably should have three. :?

PS: The color scheme is really cool.

Well there is this little self-contained device:

Sure!! I have one already :D . But I would need two more if I would control my Minitaur with BSP cv out (so far I use the midi, and it works fine, so it is not a biggie). And for current purposes two more beauties are not on the table. I may then rather go the Doepfer road (but I hesitate: It is opening up for a new path of endless possibilities).

Maybe consider this 5X attenuator from Analog Craftsman:
http://analogcraftsman.com/?product=5x- ... escription

The standard model sounds like exactly what you are looking for, and provides 1/4" jacks (in the larger 5U 'Moog Unit' format) instead of 1/8" (3U Eurorack).

Thanks! The format is definitely more to my taste. Still, it seems to be a unit to be installed in a box. But very good suggestion!

Actually, the attenuator doesn't have to be installed in a box. As a quick & easy Saturday afternoon project, I took a couple of passive Synthesizers.com modules and a scrap piece of 1" x 2" and created a custom little Euro/5U Converter. Sawing the wood into two pieces (sized for the modules), I made a top and bottom rail that the modules screw into. I painted the wood black before assembly, and then used a labelmaker to create the legending at the top. Finally, I put some self-stick feet on the bottom of the rails to keep the assembly from sliding around:

Except for the cost of the module, you could do something similar for very little money... :D

Beautiful! Just beautiful!!!

EDIT: In recognition of my poor craftsmanship, I folded and bought Eurorack modules

(along with Doepfer's noise generator and the dual s/h). The Pittsburg acts as an attenuator.
