What is it?
The Flash-8 Expansion Board enables you to save that fine Slicing session, an entire drum sample set, running SGS Sequence, or just a favorite recording you like to Slice up!
The current sample R/P, Infinite Echo, or Layer playing will resume upon loading as if the Reflex was never powered down letting you continue fine tuning Slices or start clocking a Slice Groove Sequence that was created yesterday.
The old session can be erased and the new saved in it's place, or saved separately as a safety or to return to a previous configuration. New sessions cannot overwrite another session without erasing it first, which is an added safety feature.
In addition to the Flash-8's backup capabilities, a complete MIDI interface has been included to enable full remote control of the Reflex LiveLoop from any DAW or MIDI hardware via standard MIDI input.
Many parts of the Reflex that can't be accessed from the panel or jacks can be controlled i.e. Equalizer Split channels, Dry input Balance, Sampler Panning, independent level controls, Slice Velocity...see below for a comprehensive list of the MIDI controls.

Demonstration and Development Videos
|REFLEX + FLASH8 SPLASH VIDEO
All of the sound in this video is pure Reflex!
Here the Flash-8 is under FL Studio control as a looping sequence. The audio has been saved to the Flash-8 but the normal operation records:
Each time the sequence loops (normally) another 10 Slices are recorded and the whole thing starts again with new samples. Drums are added at the start of each Slice sample to maintain a "beat" to the following sequence, but also vocals are mixed in.
|Reflex under Sequarallel control, sequence originally recorded into the Sequarallel module from FL Studio and, you guessed it, it the same sequence as above. This was mostly to demonstrate the Sequarallel but wouldn't have been possible without the Flash-8.|
