  1. Seems like the best thing about it is its utter simplicity – lack of menus that plague so many more sophisticated rhythm machines. I guess $240 is market for an analogue machine?

  2. I wonder if it’s hackable… Lack of any sound shaping options seems a bit restrictive. It’s very affordable though, especially as a kit.

  3. No offense, but I don’t really see the point in a hardware drum machine that completely lacks any kind of synthesis / sound adjustment parameters – where’s the difference to using a sampler with analog drum sound samples?
