RGET's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Simple, ultra compact and efficient"

M.F.B. Step 64
Features already presented by other commentators


Simple or very simple


sequencer has no sound but the rhythmic qualities and other


A sequencer ultra compact and reliable (never had to worry). I replaced the original power which did not leave a current clean enough to ensure the synchronization other than noon. After that, everything is back to normal. Ergonomics for me, it selects the one with no button, then the height of the note and other value and are stored. The sequence is validated in 3 or 4 minutes for all the 64 steps.
This sequencer has the rhythmic groove of analog, even and especially in the afternoon, it's much more fun than a sequencer software. A quality / price ratio, which I believe is unparalleled. However, not enough commercial success to the point qu'MFB pulled out of his catalog, and we find more opportunity.

eyapyap's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" mini but effective groove and analog"

M.F.B. Step 64
What connections (audio, MIDI ...)?

More MIDI CV / Gate

What are the characteristics of the sequencer?

Not 64 or 16 agreements with 4 notes


Simple, manual not really clear but not essential. Transposition possible in real time via MIDI keyboard is really nice.


It is a sequencer, it does not have its control, but a synthesizer or sound generator or sampler etc.


How long have you use it?

3 years

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

software, MV30, Doepfer 16QAM / 3 and Q960

How would you rate the quality / price?

Excellent, on occasion to 180/200 euros in very good condition with diet

With experience, you do again this choice? ...

very happy with this little sequencer. Easily memorize sequences, output midi and CV / gate

Viewing notes and change the sequences in real time

Allows you to select several or all 16 steps at a time. This analog groove, at this price it's amazing and it really is very light and small.

never been a concern for reliability in contrast to what was said previously.

Update 18/11/09

Level connections that little sequencer has a MIDI In and MIDI Out and a CV output and Out Out Gate, it can be used to sequence the old analog synth, but also any non Midif Midi instruments, if we are dealing with a sequencer rather small size (17cm x 12cm) and lightweight (when I received it I wondered if by chance they had not forgotten in the box) but the physical side is correct, it's MFB plastoc thus made quite strong enough, however, parried it (not even when I go to drop the third but well see what I had heard of the product MFB I expected worse ... really) other than that the sequencer up to 64 steps (rare concurrency level for the same price) can be modified using five potentiometers tempo (40 to 240 bpm), the note for each step and the vélocitée ... potentiometers parraisent solid (notched touch for each change in value) as soon as you press the play button the little red light LEDs scroll and found the side of the old vintage analog sequencer ... here I think I was pretty much say! if you want to know more here is a link http://www.mesi.fr/page_produits?prod=369

PS: For your info I sold this little sequencer, because it does not really fit what I was looking (sequencer still limited in many ways), well you figure that some time after he passed away in to whom I sold it. First it was the screen and after the complete machine so beware! It's a shame for a machine that ran on good intentions!


It is therefore necessary to understand the MFB at the start but hey you quickly freelance thing, he is at hand on a piece (though it is in English I specify the pr "do not speak English very well") otherwise it is fairly complete but the best is to hack the machine to learn ... I put 6 not including the manual published in French!


No sound is only a sequencer


I lay for two days ms I am already completely satisfied, at value for money is nothing wrong, I wanted to find Docce ms initially impossible to find so I bought new lay for 299 euros, I do it again if that choice has CETAI again, with a little more I'll be going to see means in Doepfer for a little more controllers ... <strong>At first I thought</strong> the unbeatable value for money, however, after the problems appeared on the machine I have to lower the overall score .. .

1 in / 4 out out noon + cv / gate. no entry cv / gate, a peak for this type of sequencer.


even a bike with all the functions go through 2 or 3 pots max, ie, absolutely not practice live, I feel back to the worst keyboards of 80 '. buttons too small, fragile construction, manual nonexistent. Vive le csq 100 or 600 from Roland.


no sounds, it's a seq.


purchased from online music store and returned after a test day. unable to record a sequence on the fly directly through a keyboard. to go through the 16 pots ribbed to make Zique is not what is best. functions displayed on the display completely incomprehensible. obligation also to program in advance the length of the sequence of steps. can be nice for the techno basic but to unleash it on stuff a little crazy, I tell you, nothing beats again, the good old analog home roland Seq. Briefly: it is cheap but it does not do much either.
