16 tracks, hand out an output (a / B) and 4 output (C / D / E / F) section without effect.
audio input
The sequencer is the centerpiece of this machine is a delight with p.locks.
By against the effects are average in my opinion, (reverb / delay / comp) edited a little like a emx 1. Central part to edit the effect applicable to all the tracks where you can only edit the volume effect.
The choice between 4 modules synthesis and midi out for each track.


English manual
editing sounds tedious in my opinion (you must navigate through the menus to switch from one to another synthesis (4 total) for each tracks, and only 8 knobs on three levels.
for those seeking ease of editing a korg emx eg GO YOUR WAY.
This machine is not a toy. .


The original sounds are pretty cool.
Against it by sounds of thunder has provided to the various tracks among layer
with the use of the compressor.
But we spend too much time on editing and not enough on the game in my opinion.


I had all korgs (electribes) between the fingers,
compared the MD sounds much better but much less fun to jam and play live.Seul its sequencer is the level of play.
For those who like to edit this is the machine for you.

I sold it after 6 months for his only regret sequencer.
If Elektron has come out a machine designed solely for sequencing, I go eyes closed.
