  1. Maybe i missed it but I was looking for a video of inputting notes into a melodic sequence. Kept finding videos of a ready-made sequence. If you input notes and chords like the deluge, click and hold a pad/ then the next pad in the row sets the note length, im all in. If you input them by, let’s say, tapping a pad then turning the dial to set the length then im out. The Deluge is so intuitive so its pretty hard to go backwards, turning a single knob to do everything. All the other features look great but i cant find the part where making music looks fun like the deluge/monome.

  2. Very curious about the price. I am looking for something like this that is affordable and fairly featured for years… Anything above 400 euros competes with the choice of buying a synth and wait for an affordable sequencer 🙂

    1. The linked website says it will be “under €600”. As mentioned in a commemt below it will first launch in a crowdfunding campaign, probably with some “early bird” perk to get it a bit cheaper.
      If you want something now and a Beatstep Pro is not enough, you might be able to get a new Toraiz Squid for under €400 (got mine for €399). However, it seems that Pioneer abandoned that thing already.

  3. Nice. Deluge comes to mind and likely the better device (san screen). OXI One however, looks great for euro rack setups. Small and full of features.

  4. The devs are super friendly and responsive on their forum and it already has conditional triggers like Elektron boxes!! They seem super motivated to get feedback and feature requests. Personally, I think it may be ‘expensive’ compared to other sequencers but the support seems already top knotch. For me, its worth paying a little extra knowing it will be supported after launch. Toraiz line looks great but sad Pioneer already abandoned them.
