Blackbox is a portable sampler and groovebox that lets you record, save/load, apply effects and edit one-shot samples and beat-sliced loops. Here's what you need to know.

1010Music, makers of highly regarded Eurorack modules such as Bitbox and Synthbox; now bring you Blackbox - the standalone, touchscreen sampling music workstation. It is on display March 29-31 at SYNTHPLEX (https://www.superbooth.com) in booth 35.

Blackbox is a portable sampler and groovebox that lets you record, save/load, apply effects and edit one-shot samples and beat-sliced loops. Create sequences with samples by tapping on pads, playing a virtual keyboard, using external MIDI controllers or by drawing-in notes using a standard Piano Roll editor on a fast touchscreen interface. Sequences can be played back to create song sections and entire compositions. Finish your song by mixing it, adding stereo effects and by saving it as a Preset for fast and easy recall.

Perform songs live and trigger samples on the fly. Blackbox makes it easy to create and perform music anywhere thanks to its compact and rock-solid hardware design. Just throw it in a backpack and hit the club. Record hours of song ideas, jam sessions, and performances thanks to a microSD slot that enables you to expand internal memory.

Blackbox comes with gigabytes of premium samples and loops by SoundTrack Loops and Loopmasters to let you start making beats right out of thebox.
