  1. Looks well designed, for a very generous price. I’m not the usual target for things like this, but its striking me as a path to some real fun. It doesn’t hurt a bit for Oberheim to be a partner in it. The sounds can be had in a million sets. Its the challenge of playing the enhanced old school interface that’s interesting.

      Sometime long ago there was gigantic drum library that I downloaded, it has an insane number of drum machine samples all the kits alphabetically listed with some really obscure machines. I think I got it from a link on music radar? I dunno but it’s awesome and I use it a lot, but playing with these emulations, especially on large monitors is a blast.

      Putting these older machines thru tons of FX, one fav secret sauce is putting them thru guitar rig pro, so much fun, just opens so many sonic doors for insane sounding rhythm stuff, my experience has been the more basic machine emulations the more fun.

      I’ve been straddling the software/hardware fence for a long time but definitely more software these days…so for the price it’s a must buy for me.
