I just got mine hooked-up. Mama. Mia. The ONE. Locks my studio together with really tight sounds. Even the presets are good, but they wont last long. This box is easy to work the parameters on.

It is not my favorite studio system, because I have Kyma, but it makes getting a cool drum pattern berry nice and fun. I have a gig coming up to lead into 6 djs with a my two person electronica group. This will be on stage with us. I like to set the stage up into a lot of flashing lights and cool looking gear, such as Buchla's THunder and Marimba Lumina. Lots of programable LCDs. The Machinedrum will fit right in, it is not only a great sounding box, it looks hot.

This is my favourite piece of gear. Hands down. Not only is it welll thought out and easy to use it's built like a tank and it's sexy too. I don't think I've found one thing I don't like about it. Forget the price, it's only a fraction more than an x0x and you get so much more. The sound is amazing and the fx are tight. I don't think I'll ever sell it, ever. Anybody know how many of these have been made?

All I can say is, don't judge this machine by the demos on their site. They show only 5% of what this machine can do. Best drum machine created. EVER.

Overpriced? 1000$ for a 909/808, now *thats* overpriced. I mean sure, if you want that 909/808 sound that's on every track ever made then sure, go ahead, get one.

But if you want a machine that can do something new, and do it in a portable, easy to use (gasp!) manner then get an MD. If you can't afford 1100$ for the MD go buy a used MC303 on ebay for 200$, try and use it. Then borrow a machine drum, you'll know where that other 900$ went...

The machine drum is hardware by musicians, for musicians. It doesn't get in the way, it's transparent in operation and has a hidden depth that is very, very powerful. I sometimes wonder if Roland stopped user testing their crap in the 90's

Now if only the Nord Modular had a front programable step sequencer and rotary knobs....

Ok, this price debate is stupid useless crap. MachineDrum is the Stradivarius of drum machines. No more, no less. You want one ? you pay the price knowing what you get. NOTHING compares to it. If you want basic emulation or really care about analog, go get yourself a 909, roland or jomox. You get what you like, which is 5% of the MachineDrum power, but well, that's your life. You want a drum machine and have 1000$ to spend and want an 808 and 909 and wouldn't mind for more ? Be a modern fetichist, man. SPS1 is for you. If your kid is half stupid as you are, he'll pray you for keeping that old box in your attic. Say no more.
