The Sequential Circuits Model 800 Sequencer

The Model 800 Digital Sequencer was one of Sequential's earliest products. The eagle eyed will notice that the familiar SCI in fact started as SCC, being Sequential Circuits Co. only later changing to "Inc." The "Stop" font was used even in this version product but not on the original wooden enclosed version which sported a short-lived logo which never appeared again!
Unlike true analogue sequencers, the Model 800 quantizes and records incoming control voltages digitally, together with their timing information.  Editing of pitch and measure is also possible.
Sequences are recorded into one of the 16 "banks", each capable of holding 16 notes. These can then be played back individually or as one continuous sequence playing from the leftmost bank to the rightmost.

I purchased a very poorly unit which had been partly dismantled by a parts hungry amateur radio enthusiast looking for some switches!!!!!! Whilst now very nearly fully restored, if anyone has more info on this most rare of sequencers, please feel free to contact me...

P.S. I have a copy of the user manual
