$300 for this is pretty incredible no matter what company made it. And obviously teenage engineering loves making design porn but holy moly this thing is pretty. And the animations on the screen look cool too

This looks cool as hell. Never looked at TE products and their recent prices on things like a Desk had put me off a bit but this looks very well priced and cool as hell design wise.

And just like that Teenage engineering buried the Model:samples from Elektron. Very very impressive product for the price, I smell this is going to be a massive hit. Big win for them.

And the Lo-Fi 12 and maybe even the new big Lofi 12 as well.

Copying my question and @MichaalHell’s response here, so others can find it in a thread dedicated to the device

My question

I’ve got a syntakt and minifreak. Do you think this would be a good option for adding sampling into the mix? Does it play well with other gear? I could see myself sequencing with either the syntakt or on the KOII.

A digitakt feels like overkill, but is obviously much nicer. I could probably get a used one for 500 or so.

I’ve also considered a volca sample, which is even more barebones than this.

Their answer

yeah i think it could be a great device for that… its bare bones on the sequencing department, but you can have 99 patterns 99bars long in each project, so theres alot you can do.

You could for instance set one pad to send midi to Minifreak and have Minifreak be the midi keyboard for the EP. so you could make a little beat in Group A and have Group D pad 7 be a pattern for minifreak, live record a pattern on pad 7 from the minifreak and then have the EP send the recorded midi data back to Minifreak

The lofi still has the 12 bit sampling unique feature for them, but I do agree it kills any low price point sampler ever released by quite a large margin.

browsing samples seem pretty terrible.

i think a lot of people will be making really cool shit with this device… Especially those PO-33 wizards!

How is it for free form loops and stuff @MichaalHell ? If you’re not into the sequencer so much, how’s it for blackbox-style asynchronous launching and stopping of loops?

Of course glad they haven’t, but surprised this is not the field sampler costing 999 :joy:

What do you like the most about this device?
It’s most unique pros?

Sorry thinking of computer lingo. I guess conversion rate. E.g how much space a 5MB sample takes up on the device. 5MB would be about 1.6MB on Digitakt.
