Ok what am I missing here ? Obviously AKAI MPC and Maschine+ are leading the pack on standalone mobile production but the more I check out Versalab the harder it is to see why it wouldn’t knock em of thier perch - other than maybe learning curve.

Learning curve on MPC and + is also steep.
Old Yamaha QX and QY series sequencers were simple in comparison.

VerseLab is a Karaoke machine for the WOKElings.

tbh that's my opinion of it as well. Roland hasn't had my interest much this decade, though I still love the classic sounds.

I like the maschine software ok, Push has the edge when it comes to managing complexity of a software interface with hardware as the extension. The hardware has my interest, but seems to need another gen to match the oomph of using it via desktop. Ie, global parameter lock style automation via realtime input would have me sold. Twist a transformer knob to morph between states sounds so much more fun than 'click the next loop' which is where we're currently at.

Oeksound Soothe has become indispensable to me. It's a dynamic resonance suppressor with an amazingly easy user interface. It allows me to use a lighter touch on EQ corrections and can also be a highly "surgical" problem solver.
In a world full of VSTs, mostly EQ and compression, it's really refreshing to have a tool that isn't trying to be an emulation of something else. I was immediately sold after trying out the demo.

This might change Versalab’s usefulness quite a bit: https://ask.audio/articles/free-zenbeat ... selab-mv-1
