A real sequencer, such as Cubase, makes it pretty easy to pre-delay
the Note-Ons of an individual track so that the sound occurs whenever
you want - before or after the beat.  I find it worthwhile to play w/
the pre-delay on the bassline - pushing it forward or back can often
make for a groovier rhythm.

Using the internal sequencer is a bitch, but it has its rewards.  The
Roland MSQ-100 & MSQ-700, or the Korg KMS-30 are the most commonly
used boxes - expect to pay US$75-150 for one.  There are other more
esoteric ways, but try finding one of these first.

What happens when you play a sequence while using the CV-IN,
anyway? Does it still work?  Does it get transposed?  Using MIDI/CV w/
the internal sequencer un-Synced may yield some interesting results.
