Matrix Green MachineDrum (Shagghie ft. Bacon the Flying Pig)

"Sneak Peak Preview of a track called Detroid that Bacon and I are working on. Green MachineDrum transformation was no easy feat, but with help from Pavel (, and after many months of dealing with obtuse factories in China...the green display was provisioned, and matching LEDs installed, along with black faceplate with the "Shagghie" logo (artwork by VictorJohn of Tekfunk Recordings). It turned out so perfect that we are building another one just like it as we speak for my live PA's. Thanks for all of Katy Rokit's support as well, can't do squat without her these days... :)
Thanks to Jon of Elektron too, for another great NAMM and for the constant hope of 'something new' just in time for 2010 from the Elektron Elves...I'm sure Dan is going to smile from above!
Lastly, a huge thanks to Matrix of MatrixSynth ( for all his years of ongoing support to the synth community. This one's for you...from Bacon and I." Thanks Shagghie and Bacon! :)

Update: some more detail from Shagghie: "It's a customized MachineDrum... the displays are no longer being made, so sourcing a green one took the better part of 5 months using google translator and visiting chinese and swedish websites.... the LED's from Mouser. The top is a custom black top. Other than that, it is a MD UW mkII underneath..."


  1. OMG, I want my SPS-1 to look like this!!! Would you be willing to share how you did this?!
