Isn't the MMT-8 simple? It's great! Just got mine for £150 - bit expensive I know but they've completely restored it - as brand new. I have only one gripe though - 8 tracks? That it? wasn't there ever an MMT-12 or MMT-24 or something...at this rate I may have to buy another, or try and figure out how to sequence on my rm-1x (ugh.) But I've got my set up pretty well sorted - The MMT-8 controls my Novation Nova and Yamaha SU-700 and FX, and my Rm-1x controls itself. Joy! I love having loadsa gear.

Yo Jeff!! You can get the manuals for the MMT-8, the HR16B and the DataDisk from the Alesis web site and download them if you want. Follow the hookup diagrams exactly and it should solve all your problems. Try a simple hookup first and then add more complexity. Take it one step at a time to make sure you can weed out any problems. That will help a lot. The hookup is very precise and must be done exactly according to the diagrams or you'll have problems getting everything to work correctly together. The manuals really help.

This machine is KILLER. But you need the DataDisk made by Alesis so you can store your sequences up onto Floppy. Get the DataDisk SQ with the built in seguencer (one track) bonus. Also when you shop for the MMT8, try to get a black one. They are the newer models and also worth more because they are fewer. Most of 'em are grey. Hold out for a Black one!! You will find em out there. And also look for the latest software version 1.11 the earliest software version is 1.07--the old ones--then they came out with 1.09 and then 1.11. Try to hold out until you can get a Black one with the 1.11 software. (when you first turn on the unit--it will tell you the software version right away in the display, but only for like 2 seconds).

The MMT8 is the most famous and most used LIVE sequencer in the history of music. You cant go wrong with this simple and fun to use device. I have owned them for some time and plan to use them forever. If you get a totally dead one, Alesis can make it totally alive for about $100. They are totally revivable for pretty cheap. Expect to find the grey ones for $90-120 and the Black ones with 1.11 version sw will be more like $120-150. Cool device that will never go out of style. Leave your mouse at home. MMT8 will travel well.

I like the mmt-8. the buttons on mine work fine. It's a very useful and inspiring piece of gear. If you find one for under 100, I would recommend buying it. You can't record in step, but with quantanize you can get that mechanical sound that is impotant in making techno music.
