qwertySeq() lets you sequence external hardware from your browser.

Need a quick and easy way to sequence a MIDI-enabled hardware synth? A Google Chrome extension called qwertySeq() will add a 16-step MIDI sequencer to your browser.

According to Synthtopia, the extension was created by developers Matt Dowdney and William Chu, who started the project to help them sequence ’80s synths with no on-board sequencing capabilities using the Web-MIDI API.

The sequencer will work with any MIDI-equipped external hardware and contains eight banks of eight sequences, each up to 16 steps in length. Future versions are expected to include a save feature and return audio recording.

Download the extension for free from the Chrome Web Store.
