Gadget update is great, downloaded it already.

Those Electribes look pretty cool, wonder what the price tag on them will be? $500? Not that I'm in the market cause I've already got Elektrons, but when I had an ESX-1 it was pretty fun to play with.

Also I think the cliphit is really going to dominate the marketplace for clip on percussion. I doubt anybody is gonna look anywhere else when they need something to make a dog bark sound when they hit a bucket.

Well, it's got the Swing that should have been on the Beats and Bass.

I really like that Electribe Sampler, but no midi?? That kinda sucks.

Volca Sample can only import samples via an iOS app. So you're out of luck if you don't operate an Apple device, or if you were looking for something to real time sample with.
Keys: Realistic Concertmate 500, Korg K25, Korg Micro X

Guits: '86 Fender Japan '50s Reissue Strat, '80 Aria Pro II TS-300 Thor Sound

^ That's kind of annoying. I know a lot of people like iPads but I don't like to be pushed into using them, not a massive fan of dumbing down stuff for the sake of accessibility and convenience. :?

Also wondering why they went with white, seems a strange choice given the other Volca cases, or maybe it's trying to look a like the old Akai samplers?

Maybe it's going to be a trio of white Volcas?
