Well Well Well...

DaturaZbox, 14.10.2014
Awesome drum machine for live acts!
Here are the bad points of this as a drum machine in my opinion (I still Love it)
_forget about the synths (I have "REAL" synths)
_no sine wave
_cant load in samples
_midi isn't quite as good as planned (very good idea but not working )
the 2 previous points are due to an OS wich isnt finished yet and only 2 or 3 updates since ever.
all the others features just rock! check some videos, you'll understand

Hammer machine (with one but)

AMIDIS MUSIC, 16.01.2014
Now I have the box for a while and have worked a lot (in the studio) to sound and processing nothing to complain about. Really great part and already many horny tracks made with it .....

BUT

.... for the live performance came then but the disillusionment. When I wanted to prepare a liveact, I fixed the many things like simply loading a new song during the playback, for example, are not possible and thus for me ever the criterion "live performance tool" is no longer fulfilled, because not all bands want to track For track play with breaks in between.

I also play sometimes seamlessly different parts of music .... in the meantime I have learned that due to the internally too small built-in memory apparently synonymous most problems the still to be fixed would not be realized and if one the price of 1800 euro is taken into account An absolute NO GO. So if you want to work with the machine in the studio will surely be happy with it, for a live gig should be the sequener, however, with an external sequener or you play for piece with load pauses .... pity actually: - /

I'm now waiting again from what the next OS upgrade brings with it and hope that one can expand the memory of the machine still later.
