Yeah, there was an article on that this morning on Create Digital
Music (the blogg). There were also a link to Native Instrument's forum
where I learned that it sucks because it "can't record incoming midi".
Looks cool though. Some people say they like an MPC much more for that
job. The instant sampling wasn't demonstrated though, so it is still
not verified that it works as a looper. This was not a public review
though, just a vendor that thought it was so cool that he posted an
improvised demo video right on the spot. There will soon be more in
depth reviews on MD out there.
I've been thinking about using iDrum on my looping laptop, since it
can now record and quantize midi (like from drum pads) even into non
16 step grids. My point is not to just "have drum sounds" but to
visually play them into the loops from drum pads.
