Currently $0 at the Donner Website

"Donner has announced their latest product, the D1 sample-based drum machine and sequencer at NAMM 2023. Designed for the entry-level market, the 12-channel D1 features real-time recording and can switch between function keys to create drum patterns easily. It is equipped with RGB velocity-sensitive pads and five knobs with touch function, and will be shipped with factory content from Loopmasters.

Jake from Donner gave us a look at the prototype, with, full-size MIDI in and out, headphone output, and an auxiliary in that allows users to sample. Although the prototype has only half the functions working at the moment, Jake gave us a good idea of what the new product will have to offer.

The D1 will be released by the end of May 2023
