after following the development of the Drumit5 kit for years now, and waiting and waiting and waiting for some of the kits to finally reach Australia, i went and played one a couple of days ago... very nice!

however i got a rude shock when i asked what the price was... for the past year i have been told that kits would be around $3000 Australian dollars, which puts them roughly in line with the prices in the UK and Europe... however now the Australian distributor is setting a RRP of around $4800 Australian dollars, which is currently about 2700 British Pounds, or 3000 Euros!

now whilst we regularly get screwed over by distributors here down under, i am really pissed off this time!

so of course i would like to know if anybody knows which shops might be willing to ship to Australia?

[edit: i've now edited the post title, as the Australian prices have settled (at least for now) at much more reasonable level...]
ummm, so what's happening???

to cut one thing out of the equation, i'd suggest using a MIDI spying app to see what actual MIDI messages you are getting from the Brain...

good free options are MIDI Monitor for the Mac, or MIDI-OX for Windows...

then you can at least build yourself a map of what is where while you wait for an update to the Brain software...
