Mikro looks very cool.
350 euro is still pricey enough though.

They should have made it 300 euro. Still cool tho b/c I don't have enough space on my desk for the full one.

it's smaller..

Maschine users... thoughts ?!
(do you see this as crippling your workflow?
assuming you have more controllers for knobs buttons and such)

Maschine doesn't need less knobs, it needs more!

Looking forward to iMaschine though. Finally a groove sequencer that I'll be able to convert easily to something I'll use in my DAW.

Interesting. Have to admit Maschine isn't one of those things I look at and think "it's cool, but its kind of big"

Yeah...It was already pretty streamlined as far as drum controllers go.

The Mikro looks to be less than half the controller the original Maschine is, just looking at it I would have expected it to cost less than half the price, not €350 maybe €250. Mind you I haven't looked at it much yet, I'll have a more detailed look at it later.

Looks nice and I've always wanted a Maschine, but I'll probably save up an extra $200 for the bigger one.

I was literally about to buy Maschine and now this stuff comes out, they should've waited until tomorrow.. Everyone knows that this is the day most people buy their dj gear because of the sales.

Ahhh lets wait and see, stores will be selling it for $350 within the month, that's a fair price.
