Interesting post. I’m completely leaning the other way and I’m probably going to win the current auction I’m bidding on.
I have two OT’s… both mk1 … I want a RYTM for a few reasons. Analog drums and separate outs are biggies for me. Also, having a dedicated device for drum synthesis interests me a great deal; something I missed since parting with my Machinedrum.
I think you are covered with what you have. It sounds like you can coax great drum stuff with the A4 so…
Personally, I like the suggestion earlier; put it away and see how you feel. Seems weird “Why would I put something away that I’ve paid for and I can use to add to the track I’m working on?” you know!? But, it’s the only true test.
