The scope of this machine is massive; from IDM/Electronica, Techno & Non-Techno environments which makes it totally experimental, up to genres of music that are actually not related to electronic music at all due to its realistic sounding samples; the MD is capable of taking you into a new world of percussive arrangements never seen before in a drum synthesizer standalone instrument. And the smell of it when you open the box is awesome! your house mates will definitely know you have a new toy at home!

- Pro & Cons for Purist and Non purist analog guys:
If you think that analog sound is going to change your life and that building a Euro rack set up for complex drums is better then go for it, but what I can tell is that happy Accidents actually happens, which is something related usually to modular patches; with the MD due to all the features and its complexity you really get to know the instrument in a few days or so (well wasting a weekend is not a bad idea, huh!) but after that the magic start and of course you end up saving your happy accidents which includes kits and entire patterns, and if get over the fact that it is digital you can really enjoy the sound which are quiet impressive.

- Why you would need to check the MD out:
It has 16 Voices which means it can play 16 sounds at the same time, the sequencer is used to trigger those sounds. Each trigger or note assigned to the sequencer can store 1 dedicated machine or the one you desire to assign to that note, 1 LFO which can modulate the parameter you desire in the machine assigned, distortion, 3 filter types, 1 EQ, 1 Amplitude modulator which means already 2 LFOs; and also you assign individual amount of Master Effects to each voice which means you can have a Delay on a Rim Shot, Compression on the Bass drum and Reverb on a Clap without using external effects and you can assign these effects to any voice at any amount desired.
The Sequencer is very deep, with up to 64 steps, you can also set the scale length and last step per scale; each of these 64 can store Parameter Locks to vary the Machine and the effects. With this flexibility you could use only 1 machine, for example to turn a Bass Drum into a something different in the next notes played by the sequencer and add effects to it and also lock these parameters.

- What could a music endeavour/enthusiastic/hobbyist do:
If you wonder where to get sounds made by guys such as NIN, Thom Yorke, Alva Noto, Kangding Ray, etc. which are the most known for their Glitch/IDM/Noisy ish beats; well the MD does it. And there is no need to process in a computer extremely samples to get weird sounds, MD is capable of it. Apart from the 4 main Synth engines: TRX, E12, EFM & P-I there is 1 more that can be used for triggering clean melodic sounds which is the GND with an included Pulse and Sine wave; this where it get experimental as you can assign different pitches using the parameter locks.
Note that I am talking about the SPS-1 MKII, the one with UW is something that I could just imagine!!!, but I am not into sampling, pure MD sounds are more than enough for me. It worth every single penny!
