Not sure if the only difference is that it now has a 32 step sequencer.
€9 upgrade price for owners of previous version.

Edit: just read, the 16 patterns are automatable and there’s a swing control added.

Does this update make it the first complete (sounds AND sequencer) drum machine RE?

Nah. There’s also this.

And I guess this too.

Ah, yes! Just bought the upgrade but rather disappointed to discover that there seems to be no way to control pattern length, other than to to choose between 16 or 32 steps! Am I missing something?

I would have thought it would have made more sense to make a companion Player device instead? Seems to be a fairly simple drum sequencer, but perhaps it was updated for the dev's own use?

No need to update if you already have the Tick Sequencer ? What do you think ?

What does it mean, that i only could "subscribe" to this thing? Is this the new "update" button?

I’ve already got that RE and I thought that too. I scrolled down and there was a blue “update” button a bit lower down the page. Just under the sound demos. Do you already have version 1?
To be honest I don’t see me upgrading just for the added features. Seems a bit pointless.

This has to be THE WORST location for an update button!

It's almost as if they'd try to trick you into a subscription.. but I like to see the good in people and say it's just bad design :]

Does it now sound like an 808?

Does the update includes rythmn patterns as well as the old sound presets?
Or.. do pattern gets saved along the presets? How's that working??


No vids? Come on...
