Used to have a blofeld and loved it but sold it to fund a q

I have the black, love it!! The key is to stay away from USB!!

I've heard positives and draw backs.. you know there is only one way to find out right?

Great design

Get black 2.0 version v cool.

Gaz has got one with a broken key

After all was said and done, we did have to impose some limits on actual sample record time.The times displayed are in minutes.. still a different universe than 2.5seconds. I won't bore you with the reasons right now, hope that's cool?That said, you can record 32 samples all using the maximum time if you wish, the limit just applies to each separate recording. So, for instance you can record 32 samples into the machine, each one up to 21.5 minutes each. ... See MoreSee Less

Sorry for a question that may sound too basic. is there the possibility to use an external digital samples storage source that could be used when you play live? The sampling time is indeed very long. But for example it can be interesting to have a very vast stored samplers library available.

That’s still a mega shit ton more than the limits on the inspiration piece. Still very pleased and excited to get it in my hands to sit next to the OG.

Conversely this whole OG era was sculpted by lack of sampling time and thus the artist would have to re-create the concept of time. Thus it is of little importance . Imagination is driven by limits not lack of constriction.

Unless you’re editing a mini series, those aren’t really “limits” 😁

You can still record a whole song in maximum fidelity if you want. To me personally this doesn't look like much of a limitation. I can't imagine ever having to record longer than that.

ah, alright, I didn't get this reference. this might be a problem for a consumer. Kordbot was, like, for everbody. This one seems much more specialized

If anyone needs more than that and complains about limitations in this machine ...well ............thats some power man!!!

Switch to AMD chips. This shit only happens on Intel πŸ˜‚

Who needs more than that? I’m kinda mad at being limited to only 32 samples. I’d rather it be 64 or 128 samples limited at 5 mins or something

Can’t you just download more RAM?

Can’t wait do we know what the final price will be yet including the pelican case

Perfect for creating an ultra slow ambient beat πŸ€– each drum hit is a minute long

so basically it's a masked digital tape machine with faders, nice! πŸ˜…

I’ll learn to live with it. πŸ˜‚

Any timestretch? Multisample?

Yes insane amount of time for us all.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Amazing improvement over original regardless

Are there any level matched A/B demos of a samples before you put it in the 2400, a sample on Classic on the 2400 (and maybe a sample on HiFi too)?

Only six minutes? How am I meant to use it as a mastering recorder? πŸ˜€

You know how much I could do with THAT amount of time?! Omg I'm gonna love this.

I think 5:50 is definitely enough. Especially seeing as how most samples are usually 2 to 16 beats.

21.5 minutes is Unacceptable Brad lol

Should have had the option for an internal 2 TB SSD Drive for storage 🀦🏽‍♂️

If you can't make something work with 5+ minutes of sampling there isn't a good option for you on existence 🀣

Whens he release date and can we still preorder?

that's business evolving... take time and look around your garage and cherish what you have and what you have achieved here. it's never going to be the same from now on. we'll keep our fingers crossed!

Just so you know, Brad... You won't be able to carry 7265 kilos by yourself, also... or... Will you ?

You can ship me out a few for free I got plenty of room haha 🀣

Indeed - and congrats

I have to be honest, I don’t need a sampler in my setup, but your boundless enthusiasm, creativity and commitment to this device is inspiring. I want to buy one simply thanks to your mojo. Keep up the great work.

You know I don’t even need this but I’m buying this just for your efforts . Thank you !!

Floppy disk always brings more gritty sound, ya'll know

Wow, does that mean it will be able to load sp1200 programs/sequences, even without a floppy drive?

Am I the only one that noticed the E-MU disk. Will the s2400 be able to read SP-1200 files?? If so, you’re about to hurt the entire game! πŸ™ŒπŸ½

I want one of these for sure. I have boxes of beats on floppy. EMXP support would be great too. I no longer use a commodore drive with my SP-12. I use EMXP and I still have a ton of stuff backed up on my Mac SE/30 using Drumfile. It would be great to be able to harness those sounds in a new machine.

Something you never see today! Glad you're bridging it with the OG • Honest²

The 1200 with a card slot is that deal... brilliant addition, I wanted one when I still had mine..

I really dont need another sampler, I have 3 already πŸ˜†. But I'd love this one πŸ™‚

THIS IS COMEDY

OH HELL YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

Your showing your age my friend. lol

OMG. I need that!!!

Would love to hear some Drumulator, SP 12 samples in there. πŸ™‚

oooh this is the way

WOW!!!

Patrick Antoniewicz

Yeaaaaazzz

Now allow midi transfers for sp12 sounds and files thru emxp 🀠

Custom card ? Very interested to know !

Happy to announce well soon be able to ditch the clunky kordbot fw updater apps. Now youll just drop the downloaded firmware update file onto your SD card and et voila! Here it is in action..

And yes, my personal KordBot has a translucent crystal case! :)

Comment on Facebook Happy to announce ...

Looking forward to updates. Love the clear case. It's even cooler than my black one!

Ooh! Presumably this means that a firmware incoming? EDIT: ok that sounds stupid yes obviously there's an update to add this new functionality,. What I meant was are other bug fixes and feature updates coming?

β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜€πŸ‘ŒπŸ»good job

Great news! ISLA Instruments Would you share the file to print our own Kordbot case?

Brilliant stuff πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

I’ve heard nothing but good things about these units . On my list !

Great news!!

How much for one with a clear case ? πŸ‘€πŸ‘€ ISLA Instruments

Yes! πŸ’ͺ PS: i also want a crystal case 🀩 pretty nice πŸ‘

Great stuff.

will be ordering a Kordbot soon

Cool!!!

Good work

πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

Kordbot is great! But please consider: Auto-mount/Auto-load feature (Can't think of when I wouldn't want the SD card to be mounted if present), and an Auto-Load directory a-la MPC maybe? Would love to have a "Default" preset that auto-loads and contains the proper midi configuration etc. for my studio.

Super proud of the whole team for pulling together to make my dream a thing we can all touch. Our final QA meeting was awesome (even though I was supposed to be there, for obvious reasons can't be, had to Skype in) yes, you may notice the power socket upside down in one of these photos, that was an issue rectified in the meeting..lol!A couple of these coming off the line on express shipping for me to check myself not long now before they'll be all on their way to me.Thank you ALL the lovers, the haters, the instigators and my super patient family for taking a chance on me, believing and coming along for this ride.. WE MADE IT HAPPEN!!Now excuse me while I go cry...Big Love!Brad xx <3 ... See MoreSee Less

Super thrilled for all of you and glad you are happy with the end product. We appreciate you and your full team that brought this to life! It has been so cool to see this machine go from initial design to final product. For the next machine, you need to get a documentary crew to follow you around!

Nothing like invention - congrats πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ you deserve all the success in life thank you for giving back to the music community with your genius - I feel a documentary coming in 4,3,2

I honestly wouldn't have minded if the PSU socket was upside down, I have a few pieces of gear that do that and honestly it makes it easier to put the plug in for me when the keyboard is sitting on a stand for some reason. But I get wanting it 100% right.

Well fuckin’ done, mate. So happy for you man.

As a (former) hardware product manager, I am so thoroughly impressed watching you develop this thing. The fact that you do this as a one-person company is mind blowing. Nice one!

Nice vapor ware bro

Dope. Been great to watch this process and cant wait til I have mine in its nice case. Congrats brother.

Super proud of you Brad and your family. Bravo darling chap. Much luck and love for the future xxx

Wishing you a great success with your project ❀️

Massive congrats...I imagine walking past Armens in 10 years and seeing a few stockpiled! You achieved practically the impossible and really looking forward

Still got the wrong feet though. And the buttons are the wrong shade of black
