Yamaha QY700 Music Sequencer Workstation

The QY700 is a high-end Sequencer Workstation released in the mid to late '90's. It's an all-in-one sequencer with a built-in synthesiser, effects, MIDI and tons of memory! It can store up to 110,000 notes, 48 Tracks (32 Linear, 16 Pattern) and 20 Songs. The sequencer has 64 notes of polyphony which is usually more than enough. The sequencer allows recording in Step, Punch-In, and Realtime with overdubbing features. The tempo can range from 5 to 300 bpm and the Conductor Track is very flexible. Thankfully a fairly large 320 x 240 backlit LCD screen makes entry and editing very easy to see and use. In addition to controlling your synths via MIDI, the QY700 has it's own Yamaha synth engine inside. Using AWM2 as well as Yamaha's XG format and good old General MIDI sounds. You get nearly 4,000 drums, bass, guitar, and synth sounds. There's even a library of Phrases like intro, fill and ending patterns that you can use. These phrases are highly tweakable and can be made all your own. There's also Chord memory and plenty of built-in effects to use on the internal sounds as well. (VintageSynthExplorer)
