Not a drum but still pretty cool if you have not seen the Open Labs NeKo yet you need to.¬  A 6k slice of digital instrument of the future cool stuff a PC, DAW, instrument etc. etc. etc¬  :o

I had heard about this in February or March and thought it sounded cool but 6 thousand dollars :o  I finally saw a beta or early model it was totally cool but for over 6 grand man it should have wheels on it!   I know I'm getting old but thats more than my first car cost.  they advertise that if you start figuring out all the things it can do it's a real bargain since it's a PC, a Keyboard, a DAW,  all of your insert gear and effects plus video controls they say it can replace well over ten thousand in equipment but Gulp a 6k keyboard is still steep. But who knows prices come down competition starts to happen I'd take one. 8)

$6000 and it's not even a Macintosh. What were these people thinking. I am always a bit wary of anything that has to operate on windows. I still firmly believe that Bill Gates is the antichrist. It does look like it would be tons of fun however. Too bad I ain't rich!!! Does anyone know if they plan on including a Mac based system in the future?

i would guess intergrated would knock latency issues down. korg oasis 88 keys is like 8k  crazy.  look for the next generation of intergrateds to start 2k less with a streamlined interface. 2-3 years is a while to wait for generation 2 but my low budget makes me a nonimpulse purchaser by default.

The musical instrument manufacturers seem to be pricing stuff right out of reach for most musicians. Too bad for the kids just starting out too.

I own the Open Labs Sound Slate and it was a little pricey but it works flawlessly. I cannot say that about my PC, which I spent hours and money to get it to work. The computer that Mr. Haney has developed is a good option or you can get a MacBook Pro that I priced out at $2700.00.
