NEW - EMX & ESX with SDcard Slot!!!

Yes, you heard correctly:

They have also updated the factory patterns (er - wooo?). Which is, of course, the only thing we want improved. And provided seven (yes a whole seven) new samples for the ESX. It's unclear whether there have been any really worthwhile changes to the firmware, as suggested on the threads on this and other electribe forums - e.g. to prevent the "jumping parameters" problem when moving a dial that is not in the same position as the parameter it controls, etc etc. Maybe I'm wrong and they have addressed some of these issues, but i'm betting they haven't!!!

Still, up to 32GB of storage on an SDhc card seems almost too much!!!! Almost.
Equipment List:
Laptop (Vista Home Premium) - Reaper DAW Program - Yamaha AW1600 Digital Multitrack Recorder - Alesis SR-16 Midi Drum Module - Yamaha DJX-IIb - Electribe EMX - Nintendo DS (with Homebrew Cartridge) - Warwick Corvette $$ 5-string - Laney RBW 200 Bass Amp - Various Guitar/Bass Pedals - M Audio Oxygen 8 v2 Midi Keyboard

It doesn't help at all.... the machine can still only hold as much as the internal memory... right? So you are basically sticking a giant smart media card and can store a large amount of complete sample banks..... with no easy way to switch between them during a live performance....

am I wrong?

Yeah I saw this 'new' ESX advertised the other day. I about jumped with joy, until I read the specs.... :x

I don't know. If I have a few dollars laying around I just might pick up a second one with one of these new flashier SD card drives.
