The Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII is a drum machine based on four original drum synthesis methods. It contains everything needed to create the perfect beat right out of the box.
The range of different synthesis methods serves as the foundation of the sound generation possibilities of the Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII. These methods cater for an impressive range of sounds, but it doesn't stop there. Add the track effects, the resonant multi mode filters and the LFO's and you will be able to come up with any percussive sound imaginable.
Use the sequencer to both control and shape sounds in great detail. Thanks to the customizable nature of the Machinedrum you can also use it to sequence external gear. It can function as the brains of any MIDI based studio or live setup.
The Machinedrum can also be used as an extremely potent effects unit. The two audio inputs will let you process, twist and bend external sounds until they sound like nothing else. This will for sure breathe new life in your other equipment.
