  1. "Da industrys gonna be scared ?" I have no idea which industry this clown is talkin about but everyone i know is laughing their asses off and cant wait to see them closing doors. Massive fail guys.

  2. Also a funny quote from their license:

    "The Software contains various pre-recorded sounds (“Sounds”) and patterns (“Beats”). Subject to this EULA, BKE hereby grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license, without rights to sublicense, to incorporate the Sounds or Beats into sound recordings produced by you and to copy, distribute, and publicly perform such sound recordings, provided that you provide an attribution credit to BKE as the source of the Sounds and Beats. You shall not copy, distribute, license, sell or otherwise transfer the Sounds and or Beats in their original and unedited or edited forms."

    You may think about that before you consider da thang 😉

  3. The wording of the original EULA did not accurately convey what our intention was. In version 1.0.5 the EULA paragraph 2 will read as such. We will honor this agreement with early adopters that signed the original EULA.

  4. Hey, i'm not a hater…i love music technology no matter which country it comes from. This video shows a very childish / not serious-formal presentation and the product no matter its functionality, looks like a "gangsta toy". Well…these are not serious movements in the industry and i don't think that they will change the world with that "pimp my drum machine" design and attitude…

  5. software is cool, waiting for updates for things like manual/auto chop and step sequencers. As a real time beat machine it's pretty coo, fun to play with, but still needs some work. They are supposed to be working on an update, hopefully it comes out soon.

    October is just around the corner…so I'm gonna wait to see what the hardware actually works like, it wasn't ever the marketing that got me interested, it was the specs and what they said on paper it will do.

    now just waiting to see it delivered…I will say this, i'm not sure the "industry" will allow them another push back on the release…so we'll see what's good.

    the pace thing isn't that major to me, i've never had any problems with pace on any of my machines, but I know tons of folks don't like it and I'd definitely like to see a simple serial number system or something other than what they are doing now for authorization…the system is too manual and cumbersome.
