Weird, it looks all upside down! Those wacky swedes.

it looks like combination of a dj controller / sampler / sequencer / machinedrum

like nothing else out there. which is a good thing! more hardware should be unique.

Glad it's a prototype, because the color scheme is uuuuuuuuuuuugly...kinda reminds me of the M-Audio X-Session mixer, only expanded and with a more reputable name printed on it. Otherwise, it seems pretty cool.

If it has the machinedrum sequencer in it and 64gig flash memory?
I'd buy it if thats the case. Only thing missing on my MMUW is more sample memory.

Only 8 tracks though hmmmm.
Anybody know what sample rate and bit it is?

they've also announced a +drive upgrade for the existing machines....from what I gather - 6000 Rom samples for the MKII , 4096 for the MKI


the sites down, but ya, anyway, check out the +drive upgrade.

16bit, no idea on the sample rate. I agree, looks cool, but all that pitch crap in the demos blows. Oh yea, good news for MD and MnM owners too, they can upgrade their units to "+Drive":

----------------

The +Drive expands the memory of Machinedrum and Monomachine. These
already capable machines can now be boosted by a factor of 128.
The +Drive divides a machine in 128 Snapshots, which allows for
thousands of patterns, sounds and songs to be stored internally and
more or less instantly recalled. The +Drive also makes it possible for
the Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII to host over 6000 ROM samples. The
Monomachine SFX-60+ MKII can be loaded with more than 8000 DigiPro
user waveforms.

A Machinedrum Snapshot can contain up to 128 patterns, 64 kits, 32
songs and 8 globals. If the Machinedrum is a UW model, each Snapshot
also contains a sample bank. A UW MKII sample bank consists of 48 ROM
sample slots. A UW MKI sample bank consists of 32 ROM sample slots.

A Monomachine Snapshot can contain up to 128 patterns, 128 kits, 24
songs and 8 globals. In the case of the Monomachine MKII, a Snapshot
also contains a Digibank consisting of 64 DigiPro user waveforms.

Either load a completely new Snapshot or a single Machinedrum sample
bank/Monomachine Digibank. When loading a new Snapshot, all data will
replaced by new content. Loading a new sample bank/Digibank means all
other content of the current Snapshot stays intact. Load times for
both options are just a few seconds.

The +Drive gives the enormous advantage of having thousands of
patterns and kits available. Change Snapshots during a live
performance for a completely new session. Load a fresh Machinedrum
sample bank or Monomachine Digibank and experiment with new sounds in
your currently active patterns and kits. A +Drive opens up a world of
new possibilities.

All Machinedrum and Monomachine models are possible to upgrade with a
+Drive. When you buy a +Drive, you will receive detailed instructions
how to send in the unit for the upgrade. Shipping back to you after
the upgrade has been carried out is included in the price.

If you have bought a new Machinedrum UW/Monomachine after Feb 1st, you
are eligible for a 30% discount on the +Drive upgrade price. This
offer is valid until August 1. Mail us for more info about how to
obtain the discount."

------------

Not sure how that appeals to MnM users, but for people like myself with multiple live sets using different sample banks, this makes a world of difference. I heard $390.
