This is the sort of box I've been waiting for. Hell if I'll pay $1000 for a 909, and in that same vein I can't afford a Jomox XBase-09, so this thing comes along, chops the price in half, still manages to look cool, and it even has a silver bass-synth brother to go along with it. Very cool. Still, I want to hear one straight out of the headphone jack before I'm totally convinced. :)

Comments About the Sounds:
Is this in fact an analogue modelled 909? Well, judging by the RA file on the Japanese Korg site (www.korg.co.jp) I'd have to say 'even better'. Thumping, punchy bass drums, what sounds like the 909 hihats (though that could have been fed into the input), and that classic x0x-style sequencer plus knobs for realtime mucking up the sound allows this thing to do something similar to a 909 and yet go beyond it sonically. I'm waiting for the local music shop to get one in so I can get a more solid listen before I go ahead and buy one, but I think I'm hooked already.

(Thanks to Leviathant for this info.)
