After all the speculation, I think it was just an OS update...

Which is a shame because I really wanted that T-Shirt.

only messed w/ it for a couple hours, loading a new batch of samples & rigging up other gear w/ MD as master, didn't run into any. or over any. there are changes that make the instruction manual no longer correct though. global menus are different. i jumped from 1.50 to 1.53 though, that may have happened w/ 1.51 & 2...

Wait, was that really it? If so: lame.
Moog LP + Casio SK1 and MT-75 + tube amp = good tone.

Oh yeah dj style performance on the MDUW is already possible. So scratch that previous thing I wrote.

All you need is to put RAM Record/Play at the end of your kits, use mutes and switch patterns in extended mode since doing so loads associated kits. Sending RAM Play to an individual out and into an external fx unit would work out nice, like a KP3, in mixing it out. Didn't really like using the built in delay.

So they finally officially put up those videos yesterday.





Pretty cool to see since recently I have been getting into using them in a similar fashion.
