Elektron MachineDrum SPS-1 MkII

This Machinedrum is fully functional and in very good condition.  It includes it's power supply and TM-1 MIDI interface.

The Machinedrum is a drum machine based on five original drum synthesis methods. With a razor sharp focus on percussion, it contains everything needed to create the perfect beat right out of the box.

The splendor of the Machinedrum sequencer lies in the way it operates. All important parameters can be affected and recorded. And thanks to the flexible nature of the Machinedrum it can also be used to sequence external MIDI gear.

Each track has its own effect block. It consists of an amplitude modulator, a 1 band EQ, a flexible resonant multi mode filter, a sample rate reducer and a distortion effect. Add the 16 LFOs to the mix for seriously exclusive beats.
