Bought this unit after a testdrive for weeks. It may have the name and purpose as a drum machine / sampler but it is much much more.

This unit replaces my apple when i'm on the road. It will be my recorder, sequencer,sampler and editor.

At home i use it in combination with standard studio gear and will be my background vocals, second voice, backup recorder and non destructive dubber.

I also took a good look at the " music production Controller" but you still in need of a computer which for me is a big Downside.

The positive side is that it is not only a drum machine like everybody is saying. It is much more. It is everything you need if you don't have a studio with equipment. it can handle everything from idea till the cd release which this machine can do too.

Downside for me personally are the buildin effects. They are acceptable but not excellent and i realy miss some effects in the audio editor but i can work arround those limitations.
Another downside is the fact that the harddrive recorder option is stereo only and not a direct 8 track. But hey, you can't expect everything in a machine that has so much to offer already.
