I spent some time with the Beat Thang about a year ago and will attest that it was easy to use. I just wasn't particularly inspired by the sounds I was getting. You're supposed to be able to not only sample, but create new sounds from the existing ones onboard. I'd like to see that done sometime (other than the "tutorial" video I saw).

It really seems to be a powerful machine - I just couldn't get as far as I would have liked to in a short time.

I suppose at this new price point, one could buy it and put it through its paces before making a final decision.

Once upon a time I owned a Beat Thang or 2 or 3 they crashed on me numerous times stuttered and took forever to load kits. I really wanted to believe in these guys but they let me down more than once I hope there new OS is bullet proof because it is a unique product and a greatly designed piece of hardware

If it could load 3rd party sounds it would be a beast.
