Didn't they conclude that the Roland SBX-1 made their product redundant?

After trawling some Gearslutz threads it appears that his day job is working for Roland...lol

 

The Roland box doesn't look like it's in production anymore.... Anyhow there seems to be other stuff on the market. The E-RM Multi-clock looks good and appears to combine much of what the Sync Gen and Sync Shift offered.

Looks good but I think the price is a bit steep. :O I'm waiting for Akai to release something that's a bit more portable ala the MPC 500.

That akai looks more capable and immediate, or even fun, than the octatrack to me, but i havent use either of them so...i could be terribly wrong

"Game changer is an overused term, but I think in this case we could allow it."

 

That line made me laugh because the ex-Akai people I've been friends with (they had all moved on by the end of the MPC Renaissance debacle, both out of frustration and because most of them earned about the same as an entry level McDonalds employee does around here) used to say "game changer" ironically all the time because it was so overused there, both internally and in their marketing and press releases. "This new fuzz pedal I got is A GAME CHANGAH!" etc. etc.

 

Not that they're the only ones who do that of course.

but it comes with "unrestricted creativity".

 

looks like a slightly different OS to the akai mpc Live and w/a different interface to attract ableton push users or osmething..

Under Elektron's new "yay a new machine every year" model it will likely be a less functional rehash of one of the MD's drum synthesis methods with a nicer reverb.

Carving up their existing machines and selling for inflated prices is just a Elektron dipping their foot into modular

I imagine the new Elektron will sell like crazy. I think they'll conquer a new sector of the market tbh. The simplicity and price will appeal to a lot of people who previously avoided Elektron gear.
