  • 256 MB Ram

  • Two High Speed SD card slots (up to 32 gigs)
  • USB in and out
  • Pitch & Modulation wheels
  • All metal housing for added durability
  • Lithium ion battery with 6 hours of portable playing time

  1. I gather that their intended competitive edge against the MPC and SP is that this is made by a company consisting of producers, not technology hounds, but does that work? It just seems like this thing has been hyped since forever, but the proof will be in how reliable it is. It's a nice-looking package with an impressive features list, but we'll see what happens next.

  3. I like the look of the Beat Thang – it's very "Tron". It looks like they're taking the MPC idea and moving it forward.

    We'll have to see it when it comes out, though.

  5. People said similar things about electrix products because they were colorful and a little tripped out but once they put their hands on them their tune changed….We collaborated with the Kangz to come up with the look that very much has their personality in it. Yes it's a little zany, has humor in it and is not uber minimalist but make no mistake about its quality and the knowledge and experience behind the Industrial Design team.
