Re: Sequencer question

In my opinion, drum machines were the first popular sequencers, using drum
synth audio.  So I feel that sequencers are *allowed* to have tone modules.
As far as bare bones, the Alesis Datadisk is a sysx storage device which as
serves as a sequencer/player--no editing, and no module!  There's just a
whole lot of options when it comes to electronic equipment these days, and
that's just the way I like it!  I'm using a laptop with Cakewalk 9--works
pretty good.
