1010 Music Bitbox - Sampler/Looper

Post by mdoudoroff » Sun Oct 09, 2016 10:11 am

A new Ableton-inspired sampler/looper from a new developer debuted at Machines in Music.

http://1010music.com

It was difficult to get a firm grasp on its capabilities and limitations in the chaos of the hall, but it appears to be intended to be suitable for everything from drum samples to sampled loops to recording entire song parts.

Hey now, looks cool.

"With its clock and MIDI inputs, you can play and capture in sync with the rest of your rack. "

Sounds like this would be fun to use as a performance looper. You can save 12 sets as well.

Question two: will there be a break-out with separate outputs per channel?

3 stereo out (if the fx outs are stereo) is better than 1 mono of course but I would love to be able to keep the chains modularand add modules to every signal chain :)

Question three: when?

come on someone must surely have a rough idea of the price, how are we supposed to plan to save for these things when we are always kept in suspense about these most basic things..?

Says Nov 1 on their site.

Someone has to say it: of which year? 8-)

Looks good on paper, definitely interested in price as well.
Curious how this will stack up against the Er-301

+1 stereo out per channel
This is the same limitation that holds the octatrack back.

I wonder if the midi input will allow cc control. That would be that would make it very useful

The only way I won't be buying this is if it's over 700 bucks!

yes, very...hope it can Rec/Stop/Play/Select loops with midi pedals...USB midi would have been sweet too, but no biggie...

If this is a prototype they may not yet have an idea of actual manufacturing costs yet. Building a prototype is completely different from doing a run, and looks like this is a new company as well.
I'm not buying a maths though, not my idea of fun...

The demo at MiM was lacking to say the least. The guy explained alot of cool things and then didn't really come correct demo-wise. A MIDI keyboard playing drum hits one per key.

Didn't ask about price.

Just based on layout alone, I don't think the reflex loop compares...

The only problem I see with a piece of gear like this is that it's a no name brand...people will fall to those they trust and have a good solid reputation for quality and reliability, not easy when you are no body launching something so potentially large like this..
