Simple MIDI sequencer.

Where can I find a super-simple standalone MIDI sequencer?

Fifteen years or so ago I had a very useful little device about the size of a deck of cards. It had MIDI in and out, and 3 or so buttons: just "record", "play", and "reset". It was under $100 back then, I'm pretty sure.

By hooking its IN and OUT to my keyboard's OUT and IN, this would let me play one hand of a piece on my keyboard and then play it back while I learned the other hand.

Find me this device!

It definitely wasn't this, but this is small: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul99/articles/yamahamu15.htm

I'm interested in your device, though, it could be really handy.

That's not small. I literally mean it was the size of a deck of cards. And had 3 buttons. And didn't cost $500.

That's the one! Thank you! Now hopefully I can find a place to buy one.

If you're patient, ebay will eventually turn one up.

It's a shame the market has turned from simple, "do-one-thing-and-do-it-well" devices to "everything" workstations. A ton of those devices look to have been quite useful to electronic musicians.

I talked to a guy at Anatek, who dragged one out of storage to sell to me!
