I made some of my best music with a keyboard player, both playing into a
t.c. 2290.

Not redundant! The differences to a sequencer are
- Feedback, which you can use to change clima slowly and have old things
soft in the background.
- Overdub, that lets you layer infinitally. Especially interesting with a
modular, where you can take your time to create sounds and keep layering
Simple case: repeat the same phrase to thicken it!
- the feel is somehow more played and less machine (?).
- There are other functions a sequencer does not have (easily accessible).
