Having this technology available at this price would really make me think twice before purchasing a brand new "decked out" Workstation. I cannot wait to buy this one and the pedal when it comes out!

Provided, the whole world economy does not come crashing down in a way that would impede future sofware updates of course :)

Hopefully this affordable vsti-to-box will set the platform for things to come. Its about time live players can take vst's and vsti's on a gig without a laptop or the more expensive alternatives.

Props to SM Audio!

Your not going to do an awful lot with the 512mb ram and 1ghz processor. Probably best suited to run with the installed apps and maybe run a single VST at a time of a more powerful sample player.

There much more powerful laptops with 12/14/15 inch screen at around the same cost that will be better suited to playing VST's and do a couple of other things as well.

But the concept is real. Cannot imagine why they restricted the memory to 512mb RAM since this is where the response comes in.

I agree with tgalf also wouldn't the pulgiator be a better deal? I gotta say I feel like alot of these companies are overcharging for products that should be no where near this expensive. sure it may seem like a good value compared to others but really is it? come on for a box thats basically a cheap outdated pc in a small box with I/O's come on. booooo! shame on receptor too the prices for these simple products is ridiculous.

PCs sell in the millions, thus they can be priced very low. The V-Machine will sell a few thousand at best so it has to be a bit more expensive. I am also surprised at the low horsepower, though that may be a cost issue as well. While boxes like this look good on paper, they will become as obsolete as quickly as computers do (i.e. unable to run current newer plugins that require more powerful hardware).
