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?

Look more like Kong and Maschine together.

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?

that a bit better because it has an practical amount of pads and and at least some unsymetrys in the userinterface that aöow orientation without thinking.... what we actually need in instrument design.... but ugly..uhhh..... however..

here ..thats a good drummachine design..

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