808, SP1200, MPC, NS-10 Reborn in Miniature as Beautifully-Detailed, Tiny USB Drives [Gallery]

File these designs under “do want.” Some of your favorite gear is rendered in miniature: Roland’s TR-808, E-MU’s SP-1200 sampler, Akai’s MPC 2000XL, and (coming soon) even the Yamaha NS-10 near-field monitors. It occurs to me that someday soon, such tiny things might even work in some form as functioning music equipment. For now, you’ll have to settle for tiny classic gear that contains an 8 GB flash drive – enough to carry especially-precious samples or demos or backups.

The drives are US$39.99, but contain extraordinary levels of detail and use Toshiba flash memory (not something overly generic). They work with USB 2.0, too.

The project is the work of Alkota, a musician who also offers a boutique of drum samples, including some more unique hip-hop drum sets and such. Shop:

    Don't mix bad words with a bad mood. You'll have many opportunities to change a mood, but you won't be able to replace words you spoke.

  • dj russell joseph had a status update on Facebook

    Facebook spokesperson says this about a "Dislike" button on Facebook. "CTO of the social media company Bret Taylor explained how a dislike button would make the website way too complex, and more importantly, too negative." This makes no f***king sense because on any given day I can view stuff like a video of a mother being stabbed in the back multiple times by an ex-boyfriend in broad daylight. Oh, but that's not negative.
