Looks nice, looks well expensive though - will this steal Manikin's thunder, or did they get the idea from them i wonder ?
Incidentally Manikin are working on a rack version of the Memotron.

Can somebody please explain these to me? They look really cool but beyond that what do they offer? What am I missing? These all seem to be very expensive, very limited samplers. $50 in software or a few hundred in hardware and a nice sample set will do the same thing, no?

Not to mention, if it's digital, why is it so flippin' big?

This and the Memotron are also very nice looking pieces of stage furniture though. :P

Seriously though I heard the guy from Black Mountain jamming on his Memotron and Source before they were soundchecking when they were over here and the Memotron sounds really really good. It might have just been the fact that the PA he was playing though was great or the reverb on it but I was very impressed.
