loved this little checklist on the KDJ-ONE kickstarter page:
Haha! Man, KDJ-ONE. What a waste of effort. So, close, could be so cool, but in the end looks like a terrible interface. The graphics are uninspiring and it doesn’t seem to do anything rather interesting. Looks like a sub par iPad workstation in a neat game boy. Sorry just the fan boy in me going off. On the plus side, the price is not too bad. I’ll be interested to see videos and stuff.
Interesting little gadget…
i think it is not right to compare the two. i like the thought of using the two together.
@VF i smell ya!
These demo songs do not make a compelling case for this device.
Thing looks WACK. And they are WACK for comparing themselves to the OP-1. I’d love to see a comparison sheet against this and iPad. That would be funny. Nice try
@erhenius ahahaha USA all the way! Can’t we just be known for the sexy iPad instead?
Frankly, I’m a bit dumbstruck how something like this can leak out from the giant tech world of Japan. Especially, with a team who attended Tokyo Instittue of Technology (among the top engineer schools in the nation). Was the rest of the team just rejected staff from Korg and designers from the original Gameboy?? And, to add salt to open wombs, did they really have no choice but to get a Slipknot members endorsement?
How very sad.
Best thing about it is the open SDK. Imagine OP-1 having one…
I was not immediately unimpressed with this gadget. It did look to me like an OP-1 competitor, but unfortunately it incorporates many of the things I hate about DAWs in the first place (automation, piano rolls, etc). Like others have said, why not just use an iPad and a mini keyborad if this is what you’re after.
didn’t they already try to make this a couple years ago? what was that thing… they took presales i think even, then vanished
yeah I’m wondering about that, too @docshermsticks this is not the first I’ve heard of this supposed wunder device.
srsly i love gadget…
Just noticed in the rewards: “Savings of $404 off $799 retail value.” Puts the $395 price tag versus OP-1 (listed at $850, but can be purchased new cheaper) in a different light.

Yea, I prefer the looks of the original myself.
Can it just be this already?? Hahaa, these beautiful concepts were from Glenn, (don’t recall his handle) which was originally posted in the ol’ fourm, many moons ago:
IO! We have a fuckin christmas album to put out!
it is a gadget… take it leave it. make music guys! ignore what is vapor ware dujour!
if this comes out someone will take the sdk and make a better interface and it may outsell the op-1. something like jj-os for the mpc series. biggest complaint folks have for the op-1 is the $ bottom line.
even more interesting… Will it blend!
