thanks gents. That's very helpful. I did see some videos of the monomachine and goddamn that thing can pump out some awesome sounds! And looks like fun.
Actually sounded like a full-blown groovebox, from the videos I saw, including synths AND beats. Almost looks like you wouldn't need much else, except for maybe a few samples to back it, once it's all in Live. Looks like the MM is more versatile than the MD. Still I don't know. I'm still thinking that what I would "need" (don't really need, but would like) is really a dedicated drum machine, so now I'm conflicted.
Another question about the MM. Are the 6 tracks each hardwired to a synth engine? like, track 1 is always FM, 2 is analog, 3 is voice, etc etc (for example. I don't really know exactly how they are arranged) or can you use multiple instances of the same engine on different tracks?
ANNNNND... are you guys rocking the MK1's or MK2's? I just saw an ad for a pair of MK1's (MD + MM) selling for 900 each. Is this a good price? VERY tempted to go for one of these
PS: @ dbolt, nice tracks. Liked em!
EDIT: the guy offered up any one of them for 800! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEK. I know i shouldn't but goddamn it, i think i might end up going for one of these.
