Machinedrum SPS1-UW X.10 Released [ Unofficial ]


I understand that I could save/load samples from the MD to MegaCommand and back, does this effectively make sort of a +Drive for my MD UW MKII?

How can i enter the microtiming? Is there some kind of inoffical documentation besides the forum xD?

microtiming is available with the megacommand only, not on the X.05 release.

Hey @JustinValer @v-yadli as you’ve got some more insight on the MD’s dsp processing, I was wondering whether it’d be possible to post some specifics about the MD compressor’s parameters; things like what the attack range corresponds to in milliseconds etc. Basically intel that ought to be in the manual.

Are you speaking of the master-fx comp of the MD or the one(s) newly added with X.05?

For the newly added NFX-machines there is some info here:

I meant the Master FX comp yep. Will have a look at that topic at some point as well, thanks :slight_smile:

I need some help testing the keymap pattern change issue.

If you’re familiar with the problem, send me a private message or jump on the discord. I’ll send you a new firmware to test.

The midi clock of the MD is not really sync with midi clock of other Elektron gears. I have to micro timing the A4 at + 1/48 to get a kick drum sync with the MD

The Micro timing of A4 at 7/384 will be more accurate actually

My apology, the latency doesn’t come from the MD but from my FX processing…^^It’s all good now


My Machinedrum has started doing a first-time boot every time I turn it on now. Says “Initiating” “Unpacking Factory Data” “Loading Samples”. Lost a bit of work.

I wonder if it’s the battery but I replaced it just a couple years ago.

May try downgrading.

Wonderful work here, as before. I’m still on X.04 but I will try this out soon. I tried searching but maybe someone can confirm/deny: is there a user guide for this available somewhere, beyond what’s in the changelog? I’d be happy to help contribute to one with some practical examples.

Thanks for the link, I’ll check it out - looks useful already at first glance!

With X.05 is there any way to MIDI record and playback FUNC+knob movements to a DAW (like, live controlling all parameters)?

My use case is that I am trying to multitrack my machinedrum solo live set to make an EP. I’d like to be able to record all my knob movements from one “live” take, then re-play the knob movements over MIDI while recording single tracks.

I’m thinking this isn’t possible and since FUNC+knob emits no MIDI, I will have to record the knob movements on just one channel and then copy/paste the CC track to the other channels as I record each of them.

does an actual ctrl all machine respond to midi? (rather than func + knob)
I guess it eats a track though.

That might work! I recorded the individual midi parts for the track I’m working on now but I may have to try that for the next track. Thanks!

If you enable Enhanced MIDI via SYSEX all params will be transmitted when performing func + param (forgot to document this).

See the readme file for: 0x3E Enhanced MIDI Enable:


Just about to update from the last official OS - do I need to go via x.04? And is there any risk at all of bricking the unit?

Thanks to all involved in this brilliant work!
