Just some of the feedbacks we received on our Facebook page from MAD-5 users:
5* «Purchased the MAD-5 drum machine and I couldn’t be happier with it. Wonderful product with amazing analog sounds perfect for what I make (cold/darkwave, minimalist synth). The price for the quality cannot be beat. Amazing customer service too, they really care about their product and customers»
5* «i prefer the mad-5 over the Vermona DRM-1. that says enough i guess. that phat kick wide range snare those crisp groovy hi hats and a clap you can slap someone face off with that get one while you can, you won’t regret it i promise you. also very very friendly people who care about they’re costumers»
5* «I’ve bought a MAD-5 Drumsynth a few months ago, and all I can say is that I’m not disappointed ! It has its own acoustic identity and a lot of dynamic range. I use it to make techno music and I recommend it!»

The Horrorist jamming with MAD-5:
This EP has been recorded using only MAD-5 for all the drums/percussion parts and a midied analog soviet synthesizer named Ritm-2 for all the synth lines multitracked in DAW using a few external effects. No EQ nor compression has been applied to the MAD parts.
