A staple within music production, sequencers are renowned for giving music producers complete control over the sound. At DJ City, our aim is to help you maximize your musical potential, which is why we stock a wide range of top-class sequencers to take your production and performance to another level. Varying greatly, one of the biggest differences between sequencers lies in the design. It will also likely be one of the biggest deciding factors in the sequencer you end up choosing.
Choosing a Sequencer
You might be looking for a drum-pad-based sampler design such as an MPC or Maschine that will perfectly complement your hip hop production. While for more intricate notes and chord arrangements you might prefer a sequencer with a traditional keyboard design. Or, you might even find a nice combination of both. However there is a common theme; most sequencers come equipped with a number of memory banks made for creating and storing a number of different patterns. As well as providing quick-access groups for fast recall and easy synchronization.
Another thing to consider when choosing a sequencer is size and portability. If you're looking for something that's going to stay put in your studio, a large 88-key keyboard sequencer might do the job. However, if you're after something that's able to fit in your backpack and be with you at all times; something smaller and more compact might be the ideal solution.
Again, most sequencers are powered by their own power supply, as well as featuring USB connectivity. While there are some options that are completely battery operated, allowing you to play wherever you are, whenever you want.
At DJ City, we stock a wide range of sequencers at all our stores. Including some of the most popular brands such as Arturia, Korg, Pioneer DJ, Akai, and Roland.
