I was looking for a small but powerful groovebox that was easy to use, and this fits the bill perfectly.

6 tracks that can each either handle audio (samples) or midi output, 64 step sequencer with unique length and scale settings per track. Knob for every function, parameter locks, per-track or ctrl-all parameters. Chance parameters. Far from being a "toy", there's a lot of powerful stuff in here - but it's all accessible. It's missing the Sample Locks of the Digitakt and Octatrack, but that can be worked around with sample chains, as the Sample Start and Length parameters can be locked per step.

It comes with 300 factory samples preloaded, and you can load sample packs or your own sounds - this needs to be done from a Mac/PC as you can't record direct. The class-compliant USB connection has stereo-out - pity it's not 6 tracks out - but you can easily mute tracks if you need to record each separately.

Super-light (800g!) and smaller than a 12" laptop - very easy to carry around (you'd probably want to put it in a sleeve, as it is plastic with knobs sticking out).

Very happy with my choice.

A balance simplicity / depth that suits me well :)

Let's start with some negatives, so as not to sell you a dream if a point is blocking:
- no modification by step of the parameters of the reverb and especially of delay (snifff), only the effect send is parameterizable by steps.
- The pitch and delay length knobs are quantized and non-continuous (halftones for the pitch)
- the distortion is relatively limited (I love to destroy a sound bit crusher bit, well, it's niet)
- the distortion accumulated at a strong resonance of the filter can cause unpleasant glitches to come out.
- the LFO (or envelope, as desired) on a single parameter is a bit limited (but modifiable super easily)
- no parametric attack (only sample start)
- complicated (see impossible?) to use a wavetable
- only 6 tracks
- the samples are monos
- no paper notice (the pdf is, in early 2019, only in English)
- the recovery of the pattern is not quite immediate (but the latency is all the time the same, it is done.) Note that the function "undo" is, she, immediate, so if we change a single parameter we find the original instantly.)
- The battery is not out yet and we know neither its effectiveness nor its price.
- yes this white block is rather ugly ^^
- small screen = you have to organize and rename your samples to easily navigate
- it is necessary to organize its samples either in type of sound, or in kit, both are not possible at the same time.
- the samples of origins are organized some by type, others in kit, ...
- display a single parameter when you modify two at the same time
- memorizing the state of the machine when power off it disturbs me

Then what seems super cool!
++ speed and depth of programming:
Elektron Sequencer with trackable length and speed,
probability or frequency of occurrence of each step
A knob by function (or max for 2 functions) = we take super fast its marks
++ live gameplay:
Pad with adjustable track and aftertouch retrig
Modify settings of all tracks
Almost immediate return to the recorded pattern
Everything is possible during the reading
(change of sample, recording, copy of pattern, ...)
++ essential effects at your fingertips:
reverb and delay that make serious, a little distortion
++ the setting of pattern sequences, independent of the length of the tracks
super simple and practical!
++ no limitation of the length of the sample (10s preview max looking for a sample)
++ small but not rikiki! The knobs are super spaced and everything is very practical
++ sample lock: there is only 1 sound per track ... + 24 sample locks: D (by pattern)

Which is pretty good:
+ access to 6 times 16 patterns per project
+ the import of samples (Transfer) software is rather practical
+ relatively generous memory
+ the original samples, nice

This machine suits me particularly well today.
I do not feel too limited and constrained.
I do not feel lost in too many possibilities either.
And most importantly, I have serious fun with!
