“We need more samplers!” Ok, here we go! 1010music has today unveiled Blackbox, a small, portable sampler device at the Synthplex 2019 in Burbank. Blackbox allows you to record, edit and sequences samples using a touchscreen interface.
With the help of the audio input port, it’s possible to live sample audio directly in the device. The built-in micro-SD memory slot also allows you to import quickly own samples. Blackbox features also an USB-host port for connecting MIDI devices like keyboards, pad controllers and more. Most likely, the sampler engine is based on a similar engine as the 1010music Bitbox touchscreen sampler module. More information about the detailed features will follow.
