Et svar omkring prisen fra kommentarsporet på YT:

I understand the concern. Quite a lot of reactions about the price, which I can understand somehow. I can't tell how other companies set their prices, but we kept the same pricing policy as for the other Modor products.

So why is it more expensive than the NF-1? Simple: more hardware. A lot more buttons make this machine very hands-on to play with, and these are quite expensive top-notch buttons. Also more connectors, the whole backside is full of them. The CPU board is a lot bigger and hosts a lot more components, mainly because of the separate outputs per channel.

'Only' 6 channels: you're not limited to 6 fixed sounds or something, you can freely put together any instruments you want to form a 6-instrument drumset. Sounds can also vary, not every drum hit needs to be identical, and you can put closed and open hihats in a single track, to give a classic example. I can't talk for all musical styles and movements of course, but I feel many don't benefit from having too many different drum sounds in a track.

Analog/digital: analog is not necessarily more expensive in todays hyper-automated SMD electronics production. A top-level Sharc DSP (as in the DR-2) costs the same as a 1000 resistors and capacitors, or the same as 50 VCA chips.

I think there is a real empty spot for hands-on digital drum synthesis in todays music scene and todays range of instruments. We'll see, if it really doesn't work, we'll build something new, don't worry!

Ærgerligt hvis lydene ikke holder. Synes ellers selve interfacet ser meget funktionelt ud, men hvis ikke lydene dur, kan det jo være det samme...
Stille og uroligt

Lydmæssigt minder den mig MEGET om den svenske plugin; Microtonic:
