I did just that, and he told me he tweaked it from some of the earlier models, I think a lot of people have contacted him regarding the Noise on snare/clap. He basically said it didn't need any further adjustments, I think my snare goes really loud compared to some of the videos I have seen on youtube

Don't think you will regret it, I like to run the individual outs into a mixer, it changes the sound a lot, just a tip

Tweaking the noise trimpot in the miami is easy, you just have to open her up. This was the initial value on mine which got goosed quite a bit.

great info, really wanting one. what's the best way to master or slave it to your modular? I had a tempest so I've got a pitts midi2 & a pitts inout & would be willing to sell them both for something better suited for the miami.

I love my Maimi, so much fun and killer 808 sounds. You really cant get this live and sound from softsynths.

I have had mine slaved from a TT303 or an MC202 , also using Elektron Octa and A4 cv out to Doepfer midi in on the modular.

I just ordered one direct. Anyone know what I can expect for customs and duty tax for the US? How long did it take for you to receive yours?

I love mine too; it took me awhile to get the hang of using as a live instrument, but when you do the possibilities are astounding and you can program it so that you don't really even have to be too consumed with messing with it on stage. :tu:

Just got mine direct, it sounds amazing! It took 16 days, no import taxes... If any other US wiggles were wondering about buying direct.

My drum machine experience is limited, but the Miami does not disappoint.

I haven't tried the Acidlab, but I sold my 808, and 909 after I got the TR-8s. It's not the same, but it's close enough, and I'm still finding new stuff it can do after a year and a half.

Does anyone have experience with the Acidlab, and TR-8s? Would it be worth the extra cash for anything other than performing? My disdain of digital has eased a lot. The new stuff is all pretty good, cheaper, and way easier to integrate into a mix of gear from 4 different decades. In my opinion.

I have outboard effects to shape the tone to my liking. Too many of them really, but that's what I've got the GAS for right now.
