The Machinedrum is impressive trs. It offers four types of rev INTERESTED synthses diffrent really for no less than 16 votes. You really have to listen to see what she has in the stomach.
It also has a section trs complte effects even if it is true that the reverb and delay effects are inserts. They are of great quality nanmoins and possdent paramtres 8 each (plus the determination of sending by some well-sr). Other effects are all conus specially for percussion: legalization Settings, compressor, distortion ...

For cons I am owed by some features of squenceur. Indeed, one can not CRER patterns not only 32 maximum. Gnant is enough for some applications live but ... Otherwise everything else is nickel, melted paramtres when changing kits, glide ... We can even custom settings for all rgler synthse / routing / effects for each of the steps of each party: HUGE.

Last few BMOL: I find that there are not enough options for MIDI. You can not filter the available control for example. I think it lacks some features quin may be important for those like me who do not plan their network south of Fawn classic.


The machine is very simple using mostly live. It is very easy to grate patterns, and mute the custom settings of synthse at the same time. It's a real rgal. on the other hand, it is true that it is to learn all ncessaire abrviations DIFFERENT paramtres corresponding to the notch. But it comes quickly and trs programming sounds is quick and intuitive trs.
Overall, the Machinedrum is simple to use. The manual is not pais trs than enough. (But this does not detract from the immense potential of the machine, however ...)


Sounds are effective trs. You can have both clean and clear sound that sounds grimey. The ventail standard is the fact that the sounds are really parameter. This is really a synthesizer by Entire. It is true that the sound is numrique trs. Impossible to compare one BAR entirely analog. on the other hand, which I immediately sduit which for me is the biggest advantage of this wonderful machine, that sounds really original crs. This machine is suitable all kinds of music as long as the player wishes to bring an original touch his percussion (This is in my opinion is rarely the case).


I use the SPS-1 since ending for a year and is one of my best tool with Fast Fashion VIRUS C. I Rasht without hsiter if c'tait again. I think it is unique and can marvel complter reader or a BAR analog sample.
ELEKTRON it's all good!
