Small box all do: that's how you could sum up the craft.

+ + Sampler sequencer synth fx + + + lfo various arpeggiators

The tape (to save your sequences) is a little difficult to handle at the beginning. But since this is not a conventional operation (band type) it opens up new horizons!


edition sounds very easy (4 knobs) as well as fx

sampling, resampling very easy!


Personally, I love the sounds of this critters but I strongly advice to use it before buying

No aftertouch Velocity or ...


I use it for over a year and I have Verily hard to separate myself:

qd was fourth h, the lights on the couch with headphones and shoo! is set !!!
I use it only to make me samples I rebalance my Octatrack and it's crazy speed or taken out sequences.

The big +: battery + de8h!
+ other: export 4 tracks via USB on your PC and then etched using a daw> 10min after it's all in my Octatrack!
Monitoring Teenage ingieniering with MAJ (synths and sequencer nvx) and grattos more: CLAP CLAP !!!

The big minus: the MIDI sync via USB necessarily a> MIDI (kenton type) housing

Other less: only 4 tracks
The original patch can not be removed in order to save memory storage.
But it was even qd: 42 + 100 stock patch synth samples and 42 drums patch

close to 800 € the bug (which seems gadget) it can be scary but the quality is top!
and with evolutions offered by TE, the quality / price is here!

PS: semblerai they bump on a new machine management ...
