The design is almost flawless...I say almost because it does have one glitch...I have to constantly reload whatever kit i am using because some of the sounds change when I am using midi(slave editing my sequences from my rm1x) BUT..not only can you use the machinedrum as a slave,but you can also trigger individual patterns individually AT THE SAME TIME! using the MD internal sequencer and paremeter locks)..killer feature..

Price paid: 1000 USD


Hell yeah! super easy xox interface.i was up and running immediatly...also I have had this unit for over a year and i am still discovering sounds i didnt even know where there.


Warning! This is definitly a digital drum machine...some of the basic sounds are a little "tinny" and a little bit thin..however the tweekability and the variety of sounds you can make more than makes up for it.if you are still set on using an analog drum machine,you would have to buy a whole rack of effects to do what this thing does...Reverb,delay,distortion,compression...this thing does it all...and the EXT inputs are awesome..I am still going to buy a Tr-909,but I will definitly keep the machinedrum.


Rock solid machine.played several gigs with it.the only problem i had is because i live in the desert and its super dusty.the machine just locked up one day.it wouldnt even load the OS..so naturally i took it apart.all i did was blow a bunch of dust out of it with a can of compressed air and its worked fine since.I even uploaded the latest OS.

All around a super piece of gear.Used by Roonan,Autechre and 440hz.If you want glitchy sounds and you dont want to use a laptop then this is the way to go! the timing and resolution is superb. esp. if you are using the MD's internal sequencer and syncing up.
