I'm glad you didn't spend your precious $1200 on it too..nadafarms wrote:I just tried one out at Robotspeak in SF.
I am glad I didn't spend $1200 on it.
It was just too digital for my taste, I like my Jomox and think I would be way better off with an MPC and a Jomox Airbase together (for about the same price as a single MD).
I felt that although it did have a big range of sounds, everything seemed to have a similar digi-sound to it.
They probably went to McDonald's and Coca-Cola instead
but spending some 30 min. in a store (especially in san fransisco j/k)
is not going to do it full justice, heck, even the demos on elektron.se don't come close to what it can do..
I was learning it in my first 30 mins. so I guess you didn't do much.
(ps. no hard feelings if it sounds a little like that, I'm just really pissed at how "under-rated" the md really is.)
and remember that all those synths + drum machines cost that much (even more) when they were released in the 70's, 80's & 90's.
I don't get it why people are bragging aobut prices nowadays.
