Out of the Box and Into the Studio


Physically the SPS-1 has a sturdy steel case with a thick, brushed aluminium top surface. As with most new gear the knobs appear to be surface mounted though still fairly robust. The sixteen drum pads are mechanically a little noisy but not excessively so.

The connectors are all bolted to the rear steel panel and feel reassuringly sturdy. As well as these 8 jacks (2 inputs + 6 outs), there?s the usual MIDI in, out, thru and the power connector (6v AC). It?s a shame that they couldn?t cram the power supply inside the unit to avoid another wall-wart but it's no big deal.
