The Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII is the sharpest rhythm producing tool in existence. It combines extremely flexible drum synthesis methods with a sampling engine. The powerful sequencer is the icing on the cake.

The Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII, where UW is short for User Wave, is a drum machine equipped with numerous drum synthesis methods as well as a sampling engine. But this is not your ordinary beat box, it's something far better. Both synthetic and sample based sounds can be manipulated to great extents. In a matter of seconds a vocal sample can be transformed in to a kick drum. Change a few parameters and a hand clap is suddenly a hi hat. Your imagination is the only limit.

Live performers have a trusty companion in the SPS-1UW+ MKII. Capture loops from a turntable, slice and rearrange the recorded material while adding effects and filtering. The ultra-flexible sequencer allows for total control of all your sounds and samples. All in real time.

The +Drive of the Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII dramatically increases the storage capability compared to previous Machinedrum models. It allows over 16'000 patterns, 8'000 kits and 6'000 samples to be internally saved. To give a taste of the benefits of the +Drive, every SPS-1UW+ MKII comes with seven pre-installed Sound Packs. They consist of patterns and kits combined with studio recorded, 100% royalty free, samples found nowhere else. The collection of Sound Packs is an invaluable sonic extension for producers of all kinds and covers a wide range of genres and styles.

Also bundled with the Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII is the TM-1 USB MIDI interface. This device, which comes at no extra cost, features the clever Turbo Mode. Activate it by pressing the Turbo button and suddenly MIDI and sample transfer rates for connected and compatible gear will be ten times as high. Time saving to the max.

The kid brother of the SPS-1UW+ MKII is called the Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII. It features everything found in the SPS-1UW+ MKII, except the sample engine and the +Drive. Get ready for beat making without compromises.

The SPS-1UW+ MKII is the Machinedrum model with the largest storage space to date. The +Drive makes this possible. The +Drive of the Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII divides the machine in 128 Snapshots. Each Snapshot can contain up to 128 patterns, 64 kits, 32 songs, 8 globals and a sample bank consisting of 48 ROM sample slots.

Either load a completely new Snapshot or a single sample bank. When loading a new Snapshot, all patterns, kits, songs, globals and samples are replaced by new content. Loading a new sample bank will just replace the samples, all other content of the current Snapshot stays intact. Load times for both options are just a few seconds.

The +Drive gives the enormous advantage of having thousands of patterns and sounds more or less instantly available. Change Snapshots during a live performance for a completely new session. Load a fresh sample bank and try it together with your currently active Snapshot patterns and kits. With a Machinedrum equipped with a +Drive, storage space is the last thing you need to worry about.

All previous Machinedrum and Monomachine models are possible to upgrade with a +Drive. When you buy a +Drive, you will receive detailed instructions how to send in the unit for the upgrade.
