  1. I picked up Spark Vintage Drum Machines and really like it. Having all these old boxes in one place, with one easy to use interface has been a nice consolidation.

  2. i am not a fan of browsing sample libraries for drums. my battery library gets messed up regularly.
    much more prefer sculpting synth drums. i like this and the price is right. getting it.

  3. I like it. It has some really cool features and the sound is great and gives you the 70s or 80s vibe instantly.

  4. greet review, I’m a big fan of the Yamaha R-8, very powerful machine, expensive when it first came out, great sounds. DMX, Linn Drum, and all the rest it’s a deal it’s a steal. the drag and drop bit both out and back in is very cool. As a Reason, I can see a very bright future in the combination of programs.

  5. “Da Da Da” was by German band Trio. If I recall correctly the rest of the album was not so good but that track is just unique but leans so heavily on that drum machine.
