I really want one of these. Would be the ultimate practice/songwriting tool. Watched Rabea do a demo yesterday and it ticks a shit load of boxes.

I emailed our local Rockshop manager about ordering one and it turns out they aren't going to deal with Positive Grid with these because of the crazy amount of orders and some people been waiting since January but others recieved them after a few weeks.
Has anyone here ordered one directly? Still waiting or recieved quickly?

It sounds like they're finally shipping now, if you're not in a hurry then go direct, they are pretty cool but I'm still not so sure I couldn't achieve most of its functionality with a katana mini or similar and a phone plugged into it (or via bluetooth receiver) with some backing tracks...

Shit, just checked on the site, they're $224 USD at the moment with free shipping to NZ it seems!

Yep cheap. The way it recognizes what you're playing and adds a drum beat and backing track really grabs me eh.

Be prepared to potentially wait 8+ months, which many people seem to have done already. And if they're only now starting to ship to those waiting, you'll be near the end of that list...

I think those long waits were because they didn't have anything to ship, seems improved now, but yeah not holding my breath :lol:
