Future Retro Mobius Sequencer

   (0 reviews)

Introducing the Mobius from Future Retro. The Mobius is a one track sequencer designed to control virtually every type of synthesizer or sound module ever created. Housed in a rugged aluminum chassis that is both compact and lightweight, the unit can be rack mounted taking up 3U spaces.

The step sequencer is one of the easiest to use you will ever find, yet packed with unique features. There are 256 recordable patterns available. Each recording note duration, pitch, accent , glide, loop point, and time signature. Pattern editing features include copy, paste, pattern shifting, pattern transposing, multiple pattern cueing, and LED chase. Pattern editing and recording can be done while the sequencer is running, and it will automatically save all your edits so you don't have to stop creating!

There are 16 songs to arrange the patterns in, each recording it's tempo, the bank/pattern for each step, the transposition of each step, and the song's loop point. Each of the 16 songs contains up to 3580 measures. Multiple songs may be chained together so they play sequentially.

The Mobius is the best stand alone sequencing solution for playing any of the many 303 clone sound modules accurately to that of the original *TB-303 whether they operate via Midi or CV/Gate. Of course you can sequence any other type of Midi or CV/Gate synthesizer in the same easy way,
for new interesting results. For interfacing with these various synthesizers the Mobius has MIDI in/thru/out, DIN sync out, V/Oct CV out, Hz/V CV out, +12v positive / negative / S-trig Gate out, +12v Trigger out, +5v Accent out, +5v analog Clock out (for arpeggiators, analog sequencers, or divider circuits), and +5v clock Reset out (for resetting analog sequencers or dividers).

There is a Glide Time control knob on the front panel to adjust the portamento effect of gliding notes when using the control voltage outputs. This knob is accompanied by an ON/OFF switch that can be used to disable all programmed notes from gliding.

The unit can also perform as a MIDI to CV converter, MIDI to DIN Sync converter, and MIDI to Analog Clock converter with Reset. You can synchronize the Mobius via MIDI to an external clock or have it act as a master device sending MIDI Clock, DIN Sync, and Analog Clock signals to external sequencers, plus send and receive MIDI note data, and velocity.

The Mobius also supports SysEx dumping of patterns and songs, and uses the same pattern format as the FR-777, allowing patterns created in one device to be transferred and played in the other
