Looks cool, but looks more like a straight up drum synth to me? Kinda like the never-released Dave Smith / Roger Linn beast.

Tries to compete with the Maschine for sure. Does look rather ugly and uninspiring to me somehow. But I guess it would make for a nice midi controller ;)

I don't think it's competing with Maschine. Arturia is about classic gear emulation, unlike Maschine which is stopping just short of a full blown DAW.

Might be interesting if it really has analog synthesis. Shame about the DSI/Roger Linn drum machine, that would have been epic. Machinedrum FTW?

Not that it could ever replace Maschine but it's got a few cool things it seems. It does work with analog emulation synthesis, but also uses samples. Also, although 8 pads are not as useful, it's kinda cool that the 8 pads are separate from the 16 step sequencer. But yeah it does go after the classic drum machine vibe, with 3 dedicated knobs per drum, whereas Maschine is much more in the MPC sampler style. I bet spark used as a plug-in within Maschine 1.6 would be a pretty cool combo with Maschine as standalone eh?

Wow, multiple people did a thread jack. I think Tempest is going to do well.
