At least it's fat ... I mean, generously proportioned in the sound area ...

Bonjour

The interweb tells me that I should be able to buy this in early July,so presumably there will be some sounds to hear soon..ish. I was sort of interested but as this is basically never getting released I pre-ordered a TR8.

But then the shop has sold too many TR8's for the amount ordered in, so aren't sure when the next batch will be in, so I shan't be getting one of these any time quickly.

So no drum machine for me.

So at this late stage the only question is the extent Akai were lying.

Did they have a working prototype, but it sounded cheaper than the Volca Beats?

Or did the box they unveiled even contain any proper electronic circuits at all?

If we all could stop posting scheiße in this thread until there are actual updates from Akai...

That would be g'rrrrreeat.

You often get the feeling these companies show what they could or might do, (an empty box basically) just to see the reaction from the industry, then either go off and manufacture it...or not.

What difference does it make? This entire thread is scheiße ...



When the audio demos are out, you will know ...



(Akai would rather appreciate, I'd think, a separate thread when the demos come out ... But somehow I don't think this thread is going to die ... )

You should stage a protest at their headquarters.

The amount of money it costs to create booths and attend these conferences, just no. They could create the same mystery from Twitter posts if they were just trying to speculate about a product.

actually, in july they will start selling just the enclosure. for true analog percussion, you must hit things with it.

finally, a true limitless palette of sounds!

oh well.... i cancelled my pre-order. i never really had a need for this and i really don't have the space for it. i just ordered it because i was curious and it was inexpensive. i now suspect that i've received more enjoyment from following this thread than i ever will using a rhythm wolf. especially if three of them have to be linked together for fun.

thanks for the laughs everyone

Hah. I have no intention of buying one. I just like how ridiculous this situation has become. All because they wanted to piss on Roland's parade.

Yeah, it's hitting the point where my compulsive preorder is getting assaulted by frugality and I'm on the verge of doing this. I don't REALLY need another drum machine, do I?

DID YOU KNOW? Wolves seem to reappear in lands where they weren't spotted for years

NOTE: I'd freeze this thread until an howling wolf is heard.

Its been revealed that the Akai Rythm Wolf is in fact a hoax

Manufactured to try and steal Roland's thunder at the Nam show

Yeah. For example in Iowa:
Grey wolf appears in Iowa for first time in 89 years –*and is shot dead | Environment | theguardian.com
And when they appear they will be shot. Hey, and the moral of this story:

It is a bad thing to mistook a wolf with a coyote.

funny thing is, the Akai Wolf situation really flies in the face of one of the standard myths that gets vomited back on this board all the time

namely analog synth and drum machines are cheap and easy to build and Roland/Yamaha/Whoever are stupid for not making analog synths and drum machines for cheap

still this could have been a fun toy along the lines of the Happy Meal Products from Korg, but alas it seems that all we got was a happy meal box with no nuggets inside
