Early analog music sequencers used control voltage/trigger interface, but have generally been replaced by digital sequencers utilizing MIDI. A MIDI sequencer plays back MIDI events and MIDI control information at a specified number of beats per minute.
Software music sequencers run entirely on personal computers. These come in two varieties- pure MIDI sequencers and MIDI/audio sequencers. The former only allows the recording, playing back and editing of MIDI data. The latter adds the ability to sequence MIDI data alongside audio data.
