Yeah, I think the link just got taken down. There was another video I can't find anymore of this sequencer being presented at a convention, some of the comments suggested that it was a hoax, just a box with LED's in it, because functionality was never demonstrated. I have had my fingers crossed because it looks like what I have always dreamed of- a 16 channel midi mixer/sequencer with 16 individual midi outs...
However, seems too good to be true, I think the price point was 5 or 6 hundred dollars... Soooooo.... Can someone actually make one???

Give the guy some money so:


I doubt it has 16 individual MIDI outs. That would give it actually 256 channels.

Yeah, it's only one MIDI OUT with 16 channels total. There are option for 8x & 16x MIDI THRU boxes.

Confused as to why the per-item cost on the Dealer level ($7k for 10 units = $700 each) is more than the cost of a single unit on the Basic level of $599.

Because the $599 price is a 40% off for kickstarter backers...

The demo video I saw must have had the 16 channel splitter, hence my confusion with individual outs.

The video came up on my phones newsfeed one morning as I was getting ready for work in the summer and I hadn't tracked a link down again until now.

Looks like he didn't meet his fixed goal on indiegogo. I tried to message him via the Facebook link supplied but that isn't working. Would like to find out more.

The reason I asked if it was a hoax is because I've heard of some scams from indiegogo- known to be less secure than kickstarter. I'll keep looking into, just wondering if anyone else had any info.

Cool idea, but way too massive for my tastes, and no way that will meet that cost. I could get very close to the same thing, functionally, with a few Novation Circuits. I'm using 2 now, which gives me 128 steps of 8 drum/sample tracks, and 4 synth tracks.

Also..that informercial voice!
