..i havent heard anyone mention the new analog sequencer that is currently 
on www.modcan.com which for $750 canadian(not confirmed as of a few months 
ago) looks to be pretty good..all the specs are on the site but im not as 
knowledgable as some on this list so ill leave the review of this item or 
other analogue units to them..
..its called the performance sequencer..
..i also remember seeing the schematics for another analog unit in massive 
magazines tech articles but the month which this was current im not sure 
of...
..ill throw one question out though..will an analog sequencer allow for more 
live flexibility on a sounds triggering(for lack of a better word) than the 
m*d* sequencers?..i am assuming this would be alot of fun to play with 
because you could have any start point with an input.i think it would get 
really good if you put the same sound to two seperate channels for some good 
tweaking...i think it would bring a whole new light to syncopating as im a 
fan of changing my bass drum start notes to change the feel ..(i make 
techno!!)

..cheers..
