I think my predecessors have been around the issue. A lot of original sounds very focused and very electro. Only downside to the machine for my taste (like what you really try before you buy, it is I do not regret my choice): no effects section! Strange as a choice, but luckily the rest catches up this unfortunate gap.


So there on the other hand, if I could put 11, I would put 11! Not easier to use this machine. A microwave is more complicated! No sub menu (which makes it 100% reliable for live), knobs of good quality, visibility (specific to electribe). And with respect to the manual, it's the same, very clear, precise and concise. In short, that's all good!


This is a point on which my predecessors did not agree. For my part, I think it's very subjective. Being from a middle-triphop electro-rock, I think this machine is perfect for additional rhythmic oriented jungle, dub and electropop (pkoi not tecno or dance for the fans. I personally ... um ... ). It may also have ryhtmiques oriented hip-hop and trip hop with a very original tempo 100 -110 without any concern. The real big problem is the lack of effects. For my part, I had no worries on that side because I already had the whole arsenal necessary, but beware of the bad surprise for those who are not equipped. Ok, we have a very efficient delay-no complaints at it - but a saturation, a flanger and reverb would have been another very tasteful ...


I just bought this little beauty for less than 300 euros, and frankly, it's worth a visit. A little disappointed by the lack of effect at the beginning, I still managed to draw something powerful and original to live. So the choice I would do without hesitation. Unbeatable value for money!
