Still the easiest sequencer ever made. They will never go out of style. Just make sure you get a BLACK one with the latest OS 1.11. Mine was made near the end of '92. No problems. This puppy IS the ZEN of Midi Sequencing personified!!!

ps--the older GREY ones from the eighties can have serious problems. Buyer beware!

I got this baby for free from a cousin, and I sold it like a year after i got it cause I didn't really have a use for it cause i traded it for sequencing software, tons too. I wish I could have it back cause it was easy to use, powerful and hell, orbital and autechre run their live sets on several! I might buy one in the future, I'd recommend one, just for the fact that it says "Bummer Dude, Memory Full" when you fill up the memory!

Yes, that really does work. Cleaning the contact points on the MMT8 is easy and fast and it will totally revamp the buttons. It only takes a few minutes and its done. Be sure to reconnect the ribbon wires correctly (in the right direction) and you should be all set to go when its done. I have done this on mine and it is just like new again. Very nice to know if you own one of these. MMT8s are still very popular due to their ease of use and control. I still love mine.

Your MMT-8, or HR-16 never really quits working. If the buttons quit working, you can clean them your self, with a pencil erasure... Its an easy proceedure. And it makes your machine work like new. All it takes is a screw philips driver, and a medium erasure. Just remove the bottom of you machine, carefully remove the ribbon wire connector sockets ( mark them so you can replace them in the same order), and remove thr circuit board. The contacts are on the under side of the board. if that is the problem, you will see that they need cleaned. Carefully use the erasure to remove the residue on the contact points. then wipe with a clean lint free wrag. I have used my MMT-8, and HR-16, since Alesis brought them out way back when, and have saved myself hundreds of dollars in uneeded repairs by using this method. Its safe, and cost effective for all of us practicing musitions who can't afford the repair bill.

Great machine. Extremely intuitive user interface, and if you ever need the manual, you just pop up the lid. A load of useful and well thought out functions, all easy to access. Seems to be very stable (with one exception below), I'd take the MMT-8 over a PC-based sequencer any day. Also very easy to sync to other equipment, it basically just works. Click output can be converted to clock output for running non-midi drum machines etc if necessary.

Gripes: there's a bug which can crash the machine if you attempt to record a part longer than 682 beats (the maximum length for a part) (at least in software version 1.10). There's no step time entry either (although there's a very comprehensive part editor), but I don't really miss it. The rubber-mat type keys will tend to wear out over time, so make sure all the keys work before purchasing.
