    Really interested in getting a Multiboard. Have read about all the different firmware but not sure which is best for sequencing external midi synths? Don’t need any sound generation, just sequencing. Understand some of the firmware versions have sequencers for the internal synths but can they also sequence external ones.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question šŸ™‚

    Hey man, there are no stupid questions round these parts ;^) Of the firmware for the Multiboard, the Delta’s sequencer has the most features. It’s based on the one of the Alpha, but I had more programming space left for adding features. I really should make a feature comparison chart when I find time. Yes, they happily sequence external synthesizers. Keep in mind that they’re monophonic.

    Great, thanks for the quick reply.

    Watched the video for the Delta, which is what grabbed me. Just wasn’t sure if it could sequence external synths. Can it sequence multiple synths our just one?Ā 

    Looks an amazing machine, great work you’ve done

    Just one, since it only sends notes out on one channel – well, if you have MIDI through on the synth you’re driving from the Groovesizer, you can daisy chain more synths, but they’ll all be playing the same notes.

    Great. Thanks very much for the info. Going to use it sequence a Shruthi. Just have to balance books before I can justify buying it šŸ™‚

    Hello,

    I am on the way to build a multiboard. It will have to sequence a moog slim phatty. The clock will be given by a roland TR8. I would like to enter the notes and silences of the sequence via an external keyboard (arturia minibrute). And finaly, I would like to save my sequences and be able to recall them easily when playing live. I’m a bit lost whith all that firmwares, more they seem to do so many things I have no use … I use only hardware no computer, except at home for installing new firmware. Could you help me choosing the best one please ? If it is not too hard I can try to make my own for my precise needs, but I’m a newbee in this kind of things…

    Regards, Daniel

    Hey Daniel,

    The Delta firmware should fit your requirements the best – have a read through the manual here:
