Sequential Circuits Model 64 Sequencer



(sorry for the old photo)

I dumped the contained EPROM (which works in Vice), including PCB pictures HERE. HOWEVER. Unless someones emulates the onboard ACIA and PIA chips in a Vice ad-don, this is really just an exercise in digital archeology.

EDIT (2013) This cartridge has been used by the MMA to showcase the enduring power of the MIDI Standard.

Evolution of sucking



Choice to desolder chips:

1)5$ (and millions of curses)

2)20$ (less curses but a lot of frustration)

3)200$ (And worth every penny.)
