    I was looking at that. Looks pretty cool! I'm definitely MPC-curious, and would have bought the Live if the Deluge didn't check more boxes for me. I suspect it will drive down the price on 2nd-hand MPC 1000s.

    Very cool, Peter! I might not have a chance to listen until next Monday when I'm back in the office, but I'll give it my full attention then! Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, Behringer have really upped their game in a lot of ways since buying Midas. Most sound techs buying new gear these days seem to be going for the X line of digital mixers, for example. And the fact that they're squandering some of their massive wealth to produce analog synths and drum machines for a very niche market, just because their CEO loves them, is definitely something I can get behind.

    Jay Hosking's channel is really informative for that.

    That's really awesome and generous. I think the Akai would work great together with my Deluge. PM inbound!

    My gear-lust shortlist atm: - Akai Midimix or Novation Launch Control XL MK2 (gonna get it soon, will really open up the performance ability of the Deluge). - Some kind of pad controller, to trigger samples in the Deluge. - Arturia Drumbrute Impact. My long list is Elektron and Moog.

    Love it. I don't need any more gear want one!

    Is that a Digitakt or 'tone? I want to try them both. Also, you were quick to pick up that TD-3! Like it? I'm staying away from software - as soon as I get on a computer my internet addiction kicks in, and I can't be creative. That's why I got the Deluge - it's not limitless, but its limitations don't get in my way, unlike other grooveboxes I've tried.

    For someone like him, who composes music, yeah. You can generate ideas so quickly.

    It's ridiculously fun. Highly recommended.

    I guess I'm gonna have to go back to relying on my looks to get gigs.

    All the Samples From Mars are available for $39 right now. I just bought them. My Deluge plays multisamples, and I'd like to get another device that will do it too - I'll probably try out a Raspberry Pi for this at some point.

    Happy Birthday Bryan!

    Did I wish you a happy birthday on FB? I can't remember. Happy belated!
