Open a terminal and type
 fuser /dev/sequencer
This will show you the pid of the process using /dev/sequencer (which is basically a number)

Now do
 ps -A
and match the pid (number) with the process. Once you find the process, kill it if it's safe to be killed.

 kill <pid>
Then it should work, hopefully
