Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MkII


Out of stock

The Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII is the sharpest rhythm producing tool in existence. It combines extremely flexible drum synthesis methods with a sampling engine. The powerful sequencer is the icing on the cake.

The Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII, where UW is short for User Wave, is a drum machine equipped with numerous drum synthesis methods as well as a sampling engine. But this is not your ordinary beat box, it’s something far better. Both synthetic and sample based sounds can be manipulated to great extents. In a matter of seconds a vocal sample can be transformed in to a kick drum. Change a few parameters and a hand clap is suddenly a hi hat. Your imagination is the only limit.

Live performers have a trusty companion in the SPS-1UW+ MKII. Capture loops from a turntable, slice and rearrange the recorded material while adding effects and filtering. The ultra-flexible sequencer allows for total control of all your sounds and samples. All in real time.

The +Drive of the Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII dramatically increases the storage capability compared to previous Machinedrum models. It allows over 16’000 patterns, 8’000 kits and 6’000 samples to be internally saved. To give a taste of the benefits of the +Drive, every SPS-1UW+ MKII comes with seven pre-installed Sound Packs. They consist of patterns and kits combined with studio recorded, 100% royalty free, samples found nowhere else. The collection of Sound Packs is an invaluable sonic extension for producers of all kinds and covers a wide range of genres and styles.

Deep Rhythms is filled to the brim with dubby and bass-heavy sounds.
Mo’ Town can function as a starting point in any soul or r’n’b oriented production.
Indie Twist comes in hand when wanting to fuse drum machines and guitars together.
Teachers and Preachers serves the jazz and funk community with tailor made material.
New Glitz offers disco sounds upgraded for the dance floors of today.
Gritty Beats consists of raw samples especially suited for hip-hop producers.
UK Waves gives a taste of the fast-paced British club scene.

Also bundled with the Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII is the TM-1 USB MIDI interface. This device, which comes at no extra cost, features the clever Turbo Mode. Activate it by pressing the Turbo button and suddenly MIDI and sample transfer rates for connected and compatible gear will be ten times as high. Time saving to the max.

The kid brother of the SPS-1UW+ MKII is called the Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII. It features everything found in the SPS-1UW+ MKII, except the sample engine and the +Drive.
