The Doepfer MAQ 16/3 - Red LEDs is not in stock.

Manufacturer Description:
MAQ16/3 features:
Sequencer with analog control like vintage analog sequencers with simultaneous MIDI and CV/Gate output
3 rows of 16 dials and 16 red LEDs each (available even with blue LEDs for additional charge) 
grey 19-inch rack-mount unit 4HU
dimensions: about 480 x 177 x 110 mm
weight: about 3 kg
assignable MIDI-Events and MIDI-Channels for the 3 rows:
  • Note On/Off
  • Velocity
  • Controller 0-19, 64-74, 84, Pitchbend, Aftertouch mono and poly
  • Program Change (for dynamic sound change)
  • MIDI channel of another row (for dynamic sound change)
  • Transposition of another row
  • Gate time (length of time for this column)
  • First/last step of each row can be limited by user
  • MIDI channel of each row selectable
for each of the 3 rows the following parameters are set separately:
  • running mode: forward/backwards/pendulum/one shot/random
  • triggering advance to next step with external MIDI note trigger (instead of permanently running clock)
  • first/last step
  • clock dividing factor (i.e. separate tempo for each row)
  • MIDI channel
Transposition via incoming note on events possible
serial operation for the rows possible (i.e. one row is running after the other), even mixed operation possible: e.g. 2 rows serial + 1 row parallel
external MIDI synchronization (via incoming MIDI Clock/ Start/ Stop messages) or internal synchronization (MAQ transmits MIDI Clock/ Start/ Stop generated by the MAQ)
simultaneous output of the sequence data as MIDI and CV/Gate
3 CV and Gate outputs (3.5 mm jack sockets on the rear panel)
CV outputs: 1V/octave standard, range: 5 octaves (absolute voltage about + 0.3 ...+ 5.3V, i.e. about 0.3V offset voltage)
Gate outputs: gate voltage selectable between  0/+5V and 0/+8V by means of a jumper inside the device (Voltage Trigger ! Not switched-trigger, modification for switched-trigger see FAQ). Factory setting: +8V
MIDI Out, MIDI In (no merge function, only for external MIDI synchronization and remote control messages)
Remote control of important MAQ parameters (e.g. first/last step, mode, event type, mute step, mute row and so on) via incoming MIDI program change or note events (no SysEx necessary)
Muting of single steps or complete rows via incoming MIDI program change and note events
30 sequence memories (presets)
full editing capability of all preset parameters
Alpha-dial for rapid input of all parameters
3-digit, 7-segment display
Operation via 8 buttons with LEDs
used by many famous musicians like Kraftwerk, Human League, Jean-Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze
external AC adapter for power supply (AC adapter for 230V AC and European type of mains connector is included, adapters for other voltages or other mains connector types must be purchased by the customer in his country, 9...12V/500mA DC required)
