The sequencer is the same as that Team GB's Revolution apart from a few aesthetic details.


Super easy to use

English manual


It does not generate its


I use it for 1 week. In price is quite high but the quality is by appointment. I was surprised by its size (small) when I received. I use it with Live for sequencing VST synths and a Virus TI.

What I like:
Design, usability, function remix (énorme!), quality workmanship, that it is simple tweaking loops in every sense and revert to the original ...

What I like least:
Only 16 steps (although one can looper several loops of 16 not very easily) and no possibility to sequence in 1 / 32. Like any MIDI hardware, not easy to integrate into a DAW at first because of latency.

Finally, a step sequencer is easy to use, well Millionaire function through remix and aesthetically beautiful. If I lose I repeat the same.
