Factory content isn't done yet just ask them ? I don't think I need any more synths just now with Quantum and Kyra supplying some fantastic sound.. maybe another drum machine tho as you know I like my drum machines haha.

Dying to hear it. I’ve held off buying another Virus for this.
5 minutes after switching this on I knew I wouldn't buy any Virus again Mushy.. I have only had it 30 minutes with headphones but f**king f**k ME PINK.. You could just add a drum machine and jam with KYRA and that's it.. 128 poly as I said. FX per part x 5
I need more time with this as I'm just messing about with a sound but yeah I'd buy it mate :tu:

Nah I can't keep up with the stuff I already have to do, and Waldorf is a pretty closed group.

I still might get another digital but I now have the Virus Polar, Peak, JD990 and I still have the Montage. I might get a Kyra...if you can convince me with some decent demos....

Does the audio over USB work like the Virus or do you have to select it as a soundcard?

I would be very interested in hearing how the DAW integration works, especially if you don't have to select it as an audio card on PC.

MC 707 paired with the arp from a JDXI is awesome. i hope they update the groovebox to include this arp.

this combo killed off (or at least quelled) my KYRA gas. does look sweet though.

the MC 707 is excellent. really easy to get something nice going.

Unfortunately with only 8 scenes and no song mode that’s all it’s really good for.

16 scenes.
I stand corrected, but still not enough for anything except jamming. I usually use at least 24 scenes in Ableton or Maschine to create a song. But with no song mode I guess this is all irrelevant.

Just finished hooking up my MC-707 to the MPC X for some auto sampling. Then I'll use the MPC to trigger the MC

Nonsense. Many many producers can easily make a song with 16 scenes, especially with how the clips work (you can use a new sound in each clip) And song mode would be nice (word is its coming) but its not irrelevant without it.
