A lot of advertisement on this site. It’s ridiculous.
Their best synths of 2019 article was such a disaster I’m wary of MusicRadar unless the article is written by somebody like Scot Solida
looks alright with ublock origin
Still misleading though.
3 out of the top 4 (including the top 2 spots) just goes to show that no one has touched Elektron in the sampling category for quite some time. And Octatrack is still kicking ass years after its initial release.
OT should be number 1, IMHO.
MusicRadar is more a site for press releases and paid promotion than it is a site for genuine news and reviews
But I still like looking through their “10 best Keyboards in the world right now” lists or equivalent (and usually something like the Akai MPK mini will be like No. 3 or 4 lol)
Agreed. But theres no arguing it’s the more accessible of the two.
Norns should be on that list imho, however low.
Good look for Elektron.
I feel bad for AKAI.
Top 2 are Elektrons and #4, the MS doesn’t even sample (I still love it, but it means this Best of list has an elephant sized caveat)
Volca Sample beat the MPC One?
They might want to recalibrate their uhhh, Radar.
This list is almost identical to 2019’s, save for the inclusion of the MPC Live MK2. Can’t remember what was in its place; I’ll guess Live MK1 though…
Fine on Opera in adblocking mode too.
I assumed Music Radar pages just showed up entirely blank if an ad blocker were engaged.
PO-33 should be 1 on that list. For the price and function, KO for life! That little dude puts a smile on my face every time I use it. So simple but so powerful.
Did they leave any sampler off the list?
TE PO-33 is #12
I wonder what a pure sample player (M:S), which cannot sample, is doing on this list.
MS and Volca Sample are in cahoots.
