This is not an advice post. Nor a post for help. It’s a post about love.
It’s early days, but i think I have fallen in love with the MD.
I grew up on the RM1X and graduated to the RS7000, purchased two and with these two babies, a mixer and external effects created a live set. In those days I would read Sound on Sound and lust after the Machinedrum.
My lust it seems was justified.
After years of tragedy and only just now getting time to peruse music again I decided to make some hefty purchases.
First the Analogue Keys. It’s sitting waiting to be explored. I found a bargain and grabbed it. From the little I have played with it, it seems like I will enjoy this synth.
Then I needed a drum machine to go with the synth so the Analogue Rytm was the natural choice. I was just finishing studying the manual of the Rytm when Elektron heavily discounted the MD. I purchased one without hesitation.
I have just scratched the surface, on page 30 of the manual, and I absolutely love this machine.
I could be jumping the gun here, but am I the only one who thinks this machine is heads and tails better than the Rytm?
Tell me I am getting ahead of myself and I did not waste 2.2K (AU).
