Did you take a look at the Manikin electronics Schrittmacher?
Basically its 4 step sequencers playing 8 mono-phonic patterns, a total of
32 patterns.
And there are 32 midi channels available to match, for CV it needs a midi/CV
The 4 'sequencers' follow a master clock, but can have their own time
Editing is quick and can be done during playback, push knob to select step,
turn knob to change value.
Note number, velo, duration and additional midi controllers for each step.

BTW This Manikin is almost but not the same as Manikin Records and yes Herr
Schulze uses Schrittmacher too.
