Hey I just contacted someone offering an Xbase 09.
I have been long looking for a drum machine / groovebox that can also sequence external synths.
First, I narrowed it down to a Machinedrum or Monomachine - or an Electribe for the budget solution, never really got into AKAI MPCs. But I wasn't really satisfied cos they are all digital.
For some reason, Xbase 09 never came into my mind, but now that I looked at it it seems like the thing I want!
It's offered for 450 EUR in good condition.
As far as I read into it, it offers 3 tracks, 2 of them being analog kick / snare, + 3 external midi tracks?
So I could control - say - my Mopho Desktop for the bass track?
Is it possible to save whole songs - i.e. sequences of different patterns?
I will also read the manual, but it'll be good to talk here as well I guess.
What should I look after when buying, i.e. when testing - is there something that might be a widespread issue - or is it a safe bet in any case?
Any more opinions about this one?
