The Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII, where UW is short for User Wave, is a drum machine equipped with numerous drum synthesis methods as well as a sampling engine. But this is not your ordinary beat box; it's something far better. Both synthetic and sample based sounds can be manipulated to great extents. In a matter of seconds a vocal sample can be transformed in to a kick drum. Change a few parameters and a handclap is suddenly a hi-hat. Your imagination is the only limit.

Live performers have a trusty companion in the SPS-1UW+ MKII. Capture loops from a turntable, slice and rearrange the recorded material while adding effects and filtering. The ultra-flexible sequencer allows for total control of all your sounds and samples. All in real time.

The +Drive of the Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII dramatically increases the storage capability compared to previous Machinedrum models. It allows over 16,000 patterns, 8,000 kits and 6,000 samples to be internally saved. To give a taste of the benefits of the +Drive, every SPS-1UW+ MKII comes with seven pre-installed Sound Packs. They consist of patterns and kits combined with studio recorded, 100% royalty free, samples found nowhere else. The collection of Sound Packs is an invaluable sonic extension for producers of all kinds and covers a wide range of genres and styles.

Comments about Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII Drum Machine:

Not being a fan of complicated machines, the Elektron Machinedrum it's very easy too use right out of the box. At least to check the sounds and tweek them a little bit. Haven't had the time yet to dive deep inside the unit yet. Really happy with it.
