So tempting. I wish I needed it. I especially love the mapping features, and the fast key-based pattern recall. You can record sequences of pattern changes within a live clip. I think you can even quickly record into these changing patterns.

So that's what most interest me hahah. I think most people just like it for making beats.

At that price it's a no-brainer if you don't already have it.

My favorite way to chop up anything!

Better features that both MPC and Maschine, just no hands on control.

Maybe. There is only one place I know of that is doing that though.

Well worth it. I think it's a little more confusing to use than Guru it's predecessor was, but the feature set is great. the multi tool in the pattern window alone is worth the $50. Plus if you like you can send MIDI out to your other drum synths etc.

I don't know how much I'll use it or how stable it is but I figured for 53 and change (had to pay CA tax) shipped it's worth it. Demoing now, confusing but interesting.
