Hi there

I'm thinking of getting either one of these, the spectralis is winning by a nose at the moment, so I was wondering if there were any thoughts on them or if anyone has heard of something else similar?

one's very analog, the other is very digital. both are tits! i had monomachine fever for a long ass time but right now i might go for the Spectralis, just for the unique factor. i like tabletop beatbox style hardware and i'd take either happily. the Spectralis might be a tad more versatile at the end of the day b/c of the sampling engine. no idea how the UI is on the Spectralis but the monomachine/machinedrum have one the (if not THEE) best interfaces i've ever seen.

UI of the Spectralis is ok, but nowhere near as immediate as the MnM. Lots of menu diving depending on what you are trying to do, where as the MnM has only three screens.
