Something I’ve wanted for a long time. Pretty expensive in 1984.

Growing up I listened to so much synth-pop and it’s only natural that my own music takes inspiration from many of the acts I loved back then. I still love them and listen to them!

Howard Jones, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Erasure, Thompson Twins, Tears for Fears, The Human League, Propaganda. FGTH, Ultravox, OMD, Eurythmics, Duran Duran, Giorgio Moroder, Jean Michel Jarre, Jan Hammer, Alphaville, A-ha as well as loads of artists doing what is now called Italo Disco. And many more great acts like Nik Kershaw, Spandau Ballet, Wham, Dire Straits ++

  1. I remember seeing this in a music shop and wondering what the hell a sequencer was. After the sales rep showed me, I thought….how much does this cost and how much do you cost…..not because I had a crush on him but because I had no hope in Heaven or Earth of operating it. LOL.

  2. These are quite something! Hope you've got plenty of 5.25" floppies handy. I had one of these hooked up to an RX11 and TX81z, amongst other things. Very powerful in its day.

  3. I wanted one of these badly back-in-the-day. Couldn't afford it, and couldn't justify the expense anyway as I already had the CX5m. Yamaha stuff was always well made, so no surprise if this still works today.

  4. My Favourite sequencer by Yamaha was the QX5.
    With the Yamaha's back then imho it was all about the "macros"
    Wonderful devices

  5. Very cool. Here in Canada, I just got my QY700 in the mail – still in package – opening tonite. Love your sequencer videos…they are inspiring. ☺

  6. The QX21 was my 1st sequencer in the 80s. I can understand you want to collect these bits of History but honnestly, as far as I remember, it was a good machine but quite limited and it's GUI was realy poor.

    I sold it for a Alesis MMT8 which was easier to work with.
    This MMT8 was my last hardware sequencer as I switched, like many, to an Atari(+Creator).
