ive owned the q-80 since its release back in 82 or 83 when the mmt-8 came out and i have two manuals with mine and i have never had a problem with it i mainly use it for sysex dumps with the older synths and drum machines the data banks dont hold enough data but you can record sysex on the tracks i think it is the best hardware seq made for the money i use cake pro 9.02 and it is a lot easier

This unit is way cool to use. Its easy and its very capable of many many live performing features. I just dumped my MC-50 which was kind of cryptic since this unit is so much easier for me to use and depend on. I also use the Alesis MMT-8s (3 of 'em) for the same reason with the Alesis DataDisk. But Kawai costs a little more and has more tracks. They both work great. Simple and easy to use. Lot of FUN!! LIVE TOOLS!! Fuck computing--fuck mouses. Q80 and MMT-8 is the way to go. SEXY machines!!!

Solid timing, my sniglets: this thing lags like Urkel on pay-day. Once I put more than like 6 notes on the same spot, forget it: lag-city. Do i have a bad one or something???

got mine for $70 from ishibashi (plus another $75 for shipping.. :) love it.. i've had memory loss when it was maxed out.. and i've known plenty of people that have ha dtheirs go out on them too, but generally just so reliable and usable i can't imagine that anything is half as good a value at twice the price. to earlier poster.. no swing/shuffle.. have to write it in..

but that's the beauty of it.. 32 punchable tracks.. all the microediting you could need. the only things is doesn't have are features that do some things faster.. like a swing button or writing in controller values with a mouse :) but the q80 can still do it! i've put an extensive review and description of the features at :)

i've got a photocopy of half the manual.. the function instructional stuff.. not the general midi workings stuff.. it's like 200-250 page manual folks! it's a hell of a lot to photocopy off.. so if you're desperate, i'll do it, for a semi hefty fee.. i'd be much happier to answer questions. it's a pretty straightforward box but there are so many functions that it can be intimidating to know just where to start looking for what you want to do..

if you need a sequencer with solid timing, some nifty editing functions for $1-200, look no further. designed to be used!

The Q-80 WAS the heart of my midi setup. I've had mine for some time now. And about every month or soo unexpectedly it would crash!!! In the middle of a song and on power-up. So I tossed mine out. BUT... It is a very good Sequencer, when it works...
