English definition

Friday 21 January 2005, by Rob Weale

Sequencing is based on the use of an electronic system for the recording, editing, composing and reproduction of musical ’events’ in the form of control signals for a synthesizer (hence an alternative title, ’event recorder’) or sound files. Sequencing musical ’events’ is defined by the nature of these signals - analogue voltages in the case of a synthesizer based on voltage control, or digital in the case of those instruments using either a proprietary digital interface or, since the end of 1982, MIDI, now in universal use.
