one of the best sequencer ever, love the parameter locks. excellent for external midi sequencing. i'm so-so on the sound of the machine. i don't like the filters, or the efx. i wish i could get the sequencer by itself with no sounds. in the end i sold it...sad to see it go but the sounds just weren't cutting it for me, and in the end it's all about the sound.

It is easy to use and can be as complex as you want!

Sounds organic in a way that has to be heard!

I wrote about the SPS-1 a couple months ago. I still think the sounds are a little dry and digital. But, you know, you can't beat this thing for live use. It really has the best user interface ever for a 16 step sequencer; and a very stable sequencer. Just put it through an analog filter to liven up the sound. There's so many analog filters and effects out there now, it shouldn't be any problem. I just felt a little bad for insulting the SPS-1 by relating it to the awful MC-303.

Writing about the SPS-1. Excellent OS. Excellent sequencer. Everything can be done without stopping the sequencer. Sounds are just so/so, they truthfully remind me a little bit of the MC-303 (that's not a good thing). I almost feel like the MachineDrum is what the MC-303 could have been if it had a really good user interface. MachineDrum's wall wart is huge and ugly, unlike the SidStation's cute little wart. I haven't sold my MachineDrum because it is very compact and ideal for live use.

A very nice machine for what it is- well spec'd- but the actual sound is ice-cold. Sterile. Be sure that won't bother you before you plunk down your cash. The pattern sequencer is nerdy. It pretty much demands micro-editing, and after micro-editing the lfo's, parameter locks and fx I still had a stiffly-grooving, sterile drum sound, only busier. Machinedrum- very aptly named. I sold mine.
