Yamaha QX5
Digital recorder (1986)

 

Budget 8-channels Midi sequencer with some recording option, but no sound like Canvas generation. Same weird design as TX-7 synth module

Also exists a version with internal disk drive model QX-5FD

SEQUENCER The QX5 can record MIDI data in 3 ways:


record
- Notes are recorded in the timing that you play them.

- The same as realtime recording, but you can set the point at which recording will begin and end

- You can use a MIDI keyboard to enter notes and specify their timing and gate time using the QX5 panel switches.




editTRACKS RECORDING

Up to 8 tracks of MIDI data can be stored, edited, saved and loaded independently. Recording is always done on track 1. When you have finished recording a track, you can exchange track 1 with an empty track (2-8) and record again.

Channel information is recorded, and each track can contain independent MIDI data of up to 16 channels. Tracks can be joined, mixed, cut, deleted, exchanged, etc.

8 tracks
edit "Each track can be turned on or off for playback."

EDIT classic edit function like copy, paste, transpose, punch in, tempo change, quantisize. Also less common like sysex recording.
