Buying a Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1 UW MKII in 2019???

I just need to say yes to close the deal. The price is 600 euro's. I want to use it to make my own drum sounds, playback samples and sequence external synths/drummachines. I wanted a Rytm mk1 but the prices are pretty high (around 800/1000 euro's). So this is a nice alternative for me.. what arre your thoughts???

I’d snag it. I have both the rytm and md. I love each for what they are. With the user samples you can get similar results to rytm. Really I’d get the md now and save for the rytm later.

600€ is a great price (if it's in good condition )

Here for the gear
 

happy owner of a non UW version, quite versatile for my techno and experimental needs
i always run it through a lot of pedals to make sure it sounds interesting enough but its a great machine on its own too

Still one of the best drum machines ever made and deserving of as much classic status as the 808, 909, Linn, SP, DMX, R8 & Company (all IMHO).

I am very curious why this machine seems to get more respect then the Rytm mk1 or mk2. If I could get an rytm mk1 for the same price i would def buy the rytm because of the velocity sensitive pads, the huge sampling memory and the new update which makes it possible to sequence external gear and play chromatic with the pads. The Machinedrum is for me a kind of alternative till I can find a Rytm for a reasonable price...

I think you may be under estimating the Machinedrum.
