  1. A synthesizer, sequencer, and audio capabilities for $829 with WiFi. Eat your heart out iPAD! I’ll take 2, one for each pocket.

  2. Remove the video, just listen to what he says and you wouldn’t know whether he’s promoting that thing or just any laptop with a DAW….

  3. Doesn’t really have much going for it for the price when you compare it to the obvious competition does it? Also, why is it so big?

  4. I really hate people who wear sunglasses for promotional videos when they’re indoors. They should’ve found someone that makes interesting music at least!

  5. Part of me thinks the makers of this device chose this spokesman because he might appeal to kids – but does he? Certainly he doesn’t appeal to adults – so who Does he represent aside from a result of improper parenting and a thuggish pride in bad taste?

  6. i’d love to mess with it, portable battery powered fun is one of the best things ever, why not more devices like that?

    i am curious to hear more details about sample sound mangling, the included synthesis methods, fx, and all

  7. For $800, would you want a kdj-one or an OP-1?

    Unless they make a better price point, these are gonna be passed over for the OP-1 anyday.

  8. Beat Thang Redux: The Thangening

    Who put up the venture capital for this, and who decided the spokesman should be DJ Starscream of notable dead 00s nu-metal Slipknot? I can’t remember the last time I heard of them, let alone heard of them in a non-derogatory context.
