    Lookin’ good.

    Even though it’s really not my kind of thing, I’m pretty excited about giving this a go.

    I’m just kind of surprised that the synthesizer section is not for drums or percussion.

      hybrid additive, FM & RM design; what’s going to stop you from creating percussive sounds?

      • Ravasb

        There are not any percussive presets to demonstrate the potential. Some of the more recent drum/groove machines feature percussive sounds to layer with the samples. This product seems fine, but depending on price, Punch might be better option for me.

    Nice example of what can be done with a 2 bar loop! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOs49PBR0oQ
