So just turn to the Kurzweil 250 Expander's built-in 7900-note, 12-track sequencer. Our sequencer can edit single tracks, edit single notes, run continuous loops and chain sequences together. You can even insert notes, replace instruments or change tempos and volumes on any track. And once you're satisfied with what you've got, there's quanti zation to clean up slight timing errors.
