Any chance of someone setting up a Forum for Machinedrum users ? This thing is so deep...

It's made me excited about writing music again.

This box is incredible. I agree, there are definitely a few odd bugs that need to be worked out before the final OS, but I was more impressed with the functionality than I expected to be. the sound synthesis on it is WONDERFUL! It has as much punch,if not more than just about any drummachine I've heard, and this includes the analog stuff. anyhow, when the final version of this comes out, GO BUY ONE!!!! :-)

Even in beta form this is certainly amazing. With an x0x style form factor, 6 outputs, 2 inputs, a good sequencer, big LCD display, lots of easily accessed parameters and effects it is a boon for live performance. Despite its ease of use it is not a limited drum machine; it is a DSP based synthesizer with a tremendous range of sound. Since this is a new synth, I'll let the official website reveal the specs and nature of this beast.

The beta has some quirks present and leaves some features I'd like to be added or improved but the great thing about Elektron is that they probably will add features so long as you tell them what you want and it's reasonable and possible. And the great thing about the machine drum is that it only requires software updates. It's also very likely that Elektron will put out new or different machines (as each synth which makes 1 type of sound is called) and maybe eventually we'll be able to create the machines ourself. The only big feature that would probably be impossible to add is wavetable style synthesis manipulation (like an XD-5) but that's why this is the SPS-1: so we can convince them to build an SPS-2 in a couple years.

I think this will probably become the next big thing in drum machines for those who use x0x boxes or MPCs. It is certainly a box where anyone who tries it and can find funding for it will buy it.
