UTILIZATION

Very usable in live performance situations. Fairly easy operating method. Once you understand the way the system is organised operation becomes much clearer. This machine has tons of "hidden" features that are not so clearly explained in the manual. But there is good technical and user support via email and a user's forum offers help as well.

Very well built! The main rack mount unit as well as the remote control are very sturdy. Most of it's components are taken from laptops. Since the unit runs from the operating system which lies internally on a flash-eprom, I've never had it crash on me (like my laptop did many times). For data storage the internal hard drive is laptop based so it can be easily upgraded. And then there's the smartmedia drive, CD-ROM drive, floppy, etc.

SOUNDS

After two decades working with various music production machines (Roland MC, Akai MPC, Laptops, etc.) in live-performance situations on the road, I can honestly say that this european-built unit is the best I've put my hands on so far. The sound quality of this little known machine is simply great (24 bit audio / 32 bit multi DSP processing).

OVERALL OPINION

After working with this machine in my live shows for over a year now, I've sincerely grown to love it for what it does for me. As I mentioned above, I've worked with all kinds of sequencers on the road over the past couple of decades, and by far this is the best there is out there. I carry the main unit in a small 4U rack together with a sampler and 2 sound modules. My midi cables are permanently connected. At gigs I simply connect the audio cables, plug my midi keyboard controller to the midi input on the front of the unit, place the remote control in front of me on the keyboard controller, and I'm good to go!
