Machinedrum SPS1-UW X.04 Released [ Unofficial ]

Well done chaps, taking the Machinedrum into the synth world is a huge step, plus the new LFO and Tonal settings. Would love to see polyrhythm sequencing coming to the Machinedrum in the future.

Awesome to see the classic machines getting updated.

For those talking on the MNM: it doesn’t get updated because it’s perfect!
If you work on the MNM, can I request just one thing?: move the mute window a few pixels down so I can see the values of the A and B parameters while muting tracks? XD it’s just so annoying!

Ok - this was REALLY easy! Using Sysex Librarian on MB with catalina + the old TM-1 Interface.
Took quite a while (almost 40 min, even in Turbo Mode) - but … awesome. Like a new device in my setup.

Now: MD might (seriously) work as one device fitting for all!
Thank you guys - please let me know, where I can leave a tip - it is an awesome work you did - and hopefully you keep on working on this project.

Is there any more (written) documentation on the new features like an augmentation of the appendix? For me it is alsway a great help to know, what happens, if you are turning a knob.

Thanks again for keeping this unit alive - I think this update will change my mind on this device …

Looking forward to your jams!

Curious, how many of you have MegaCommand but don’t have a TM-1?
I have a custom MegaCommand fw that mimics TM-1 for firmware upgrade.
Takes two minutes to flash it.


Is MegaCommand a hardware solution?
Where can I get it?

I’ve got MCL and a TM-1 that doesn’t work! I’d love to try that out. Is it specifically tuned for upgrading or can it mimic the Turbo for SDS ?

Don’t you still use RAM machines ?

i :sparkling_heart: RAM machines

this would be a good t-shirt


are there any issues with the swing. in x0.04 it seems that swing is global only. i tried to swing a track but instead it swings “all” even though i was on the tr:x swing not “all”. anyone encountered this issue?

No repro – individual swing works here.
Note that you’ll have to clear the swing pattern for the tracks that you don’t want it – only the swing amount is global.

Bonkers os update, thanks so much to the machinedrum geniuses . Happy 20 years machinedrum. Congrats on all the hard work.
Enjoying jamming with the mm style machines - so great. And the new os… glues together so well with the megacommand.

As @v-yadli says it’s one of the MD UI quirks that it implies that swing amount is adjustable per track, but it’s not. The swing % value applies globally to all tracks. However, you can adjust which trig steps are affected by the swing value on a per-track basis.

People: nooo this is not MachineDrum
MD: comeon🎵




FAKE! there’s a MnM off screen! :wink:

Obscure reference t shirt.
I’d buy one.
Except people would think I’m talking about american pickup trucks.

There’s a subtle difference between RAM and ramming :wink:
