Absent from both NAMM and the MESSE this year, Elektron obviously like to do things their own way, it not a strategy that has let them down so far with all of their instruments achieving modern classic status relatively quickly after release. The MachineDrum is considered by many to be the ultimate modern drum machine with it's powerful pattern based sequencer and flexible sound creation, it's capable of a huge range of sounds. The latest enhancement to the Elektron is the new MachineDrum SPS1 -UW (UserWave). The new UW adds User Sampling and the RAM for sotrage, some extra DSP coding with 32 new ROM machines for sample playback. The major news is that it now enable you to sample into the machine and store the samples for use in your kits, either in the form of single hits or loops. it's not geared up for keyboard like multi-sampling, but you get a couple of MB in which to store your favourite sounds. Daniel Hannsson, Elktron head honcho, grudgingly accepted that poeple could now include the ubiquitous 909 hat samples in their kits, though I suspect he never would. The SPS-1UW retains all of the features of the original SPS-1 and will be available world-wide from May 2005 at EUR 1590/$1640 Elektron are keen to let exisiting owners of machineDrum will be able to get their units retrofitted with the new updates at a favourable rate - details to be announced shortly.
