Handmade Patchable MIDI Sequencer

by Mike Una

I made this simple MIDI sequencer using a HighlyLiquid MIDI CPU.

The sequencer circuit is the old classic “Baby 10” design, but you could save yourself some time and use the Getlofi Sequencer kit.

The nail-and-cliplead design was inspired by the work of Getlofi’s own Alex Deeba, aka Talking Computron.

In this video I’m using the sequencer to drive the MeeBlip digital synth (which I built from a kit), and it’s synched with some drums and basslines from Ableton Live by sending a clock signal to the sequencer via another HighlyLiquid kit, the MD24 MIDI Decoder.
