hello, I am loving getting bargain bits of midi triggered gear right now, and am looking into to setting up a bit of a MIDI masterpiece out of cheap stuff on ebay etc for fun as I am a total dork.

I have noticed a few times on ebay you can get little units which you can programme a few sequences into and thats it..

anyone know good ones I can pick up for near to nothing, maybe Ill pick up a few, have em all linked via MIDI and run different loops of each, and edit and perform on the fly along side my synths and drum machines

one day I would like to perform live using no computers :)

Alesis MMT8, cheap, easy to use, and great for live work, with it's many buttons you can punch "on the fly"

Yamaha QX series of sequencers. Especially the QX5fd which had a floppy drive built into it.
Kawai Q80
Roland MC series

Alesis Mmt8 is very good especially for improvising in pattern mode. Seriously needs a back up solution as the power supply was problematic leading to sometimes wiping the memory of contents. Oh and the buttons can be temperamental so check before buying.
