Ya, I get a itch for a qy300, etc.(like I'm gonna figure that out) I did pick up a qy10 and I'm using it mostly as a portable sound module. I would rather just record the MIDI than step edit. So happens, I just ordered the baby Korg Sunday(with a nanokey). For song sequencers, I have the qy10, old Korg SQD-1, Kawai q80 ?? and stuff in keyboards.

The Bastl Kastle has sync i/o on that 3.5mm patch cable, so I thought I might as well get the little Korg SQ. In that game, I've the Volca FM, Microbrute and Keystep, & akai rhythm wolf
