Looks really nice

Nice!

Wonder how the Kickstarter will be priced. Per their website, this thing is $599 which feels mighty steep in my opinion.

Def intrigued though

I’d buy it for the 909 keyboard and handle myself.
Nice looking little thing but if that’s the price I’ll just be an observer…

Like a Social Entropy Engine crashed into the Blipbox :sweat_smile:

Looks fun. Like a pocket operator meets a pocket piano.

Very cute looking and sounds great.

Realistically I already have something like this on the op-z using the tape track with multiple synth tracks. The tape track isn’t a looper but dynamic, playful and unexpected.

Yes, i think my op-1 Covers the same functionality and more…

Ouch. Will be interested to see the pre-order pricing.

The handle seems like a silly waste of space while understandable for an 8yo’s speak-n-spell but I don’t see the purpose in carrying around a $500 item like that. Better would be a chain so one could wear it around the neck like Flava Flav’s clock.

It’s a bit Critter & Guitari in the artwork… Kinda love it though.

It has an interesting concept but I also feel like there’s several Organelle patches that do the same shit.

The handle looks removable to me. It’s got little cavities on it, looks like you could fit a screwdriver into it.

Looks so cute and equally terrible to use, and this is precisely why it will be successfully funded. :rofl:

You are correct, I emailed and they replied: “To answer your question: Yes… the handle attaches with two Allen screws, and can easily be removed.”

Love it, SK-1 on steroids but at 599 I’ll pass.

The joke’s on us, this is all an elaborate “immersive-advertising” teaser for a new season of Portlandia.

It all honesty, its totally adorable and かわいいィィィィーーーー.
I legit wish my Rytm looked like this and still had all the functionality of a Rytm.

I’m trying to find this information on their site. Link?

Yeah, I’m not going to sit here and pretend I haven’t always kind of wanted a Yamaha SU700 just for that bit.

Anyway, the thing looks super cool. Demo sounded good. I don’t know about $599. But I like it.
