Acidlab Miami

Post by TrondC » Mon Jan 19, 2009 1:32 pm

didn't see this here yet, though I'd share with you guys, as I am a Acidlab-w***e :p

Tr-808 clone, with very accurate sounds. http://matrixsynth.blogspot.com/2009/01 ... check.html for comparing sounds. one is a real 808, the other is the Miami prototype. sounds more than accurate enough for me..

we like? yes?

It seems like an accurate clone of the TR-808.

But he could have went one step further and offered tuning
across all drum voices, and decay on the closed hi-hat would
have been nice as well.

Also, the Fill-in (patterns) seems to be missing (usually steps 13-16) and
there is no Fill-in measure knob, say if you want a fill-in every 4-bars
or 8-bars.

But wait a minute... there is no way to get a 32-step pattern like on
the original 808 ?

well, there's the length-button, which I just assumed would double the length? on the bassline 1 you can double the length by chaining two patterns. definately needs swing tho. think this is just a prototype yet. I'm hoping for a price that's within my limits ;)

Ive heard, around 800 euros, which I'm hoping is the price that sticks...

The pictures up on matrixsynth of the prototype seem to match up with this layout, so maybe there's a double function to produce swing....

or maybe not, I mean it could change slightly.

I highly doubt klaus pulling a boomchik on us though....

I never was much into making acieeed, but I really enjoy the appearance of Acidlab gear. Really cool looking stuff!

But this Miami thingy has peaked my interest in a whole new way, eagerly waiting for the finished product.

i wonder if the left or right channel is the real deal.

i think the kick sounds little phatter on the right channel......

it's not clearly said on matrixsynth, and klaus didnt explain it too

I would've thought Roland would make a new drum machine based off of the TR series.

Roland, do a TR x0x type drum machine again - never! They wouldn't make s**t, if you paid them to do it.
They are stuck in their groovebox glory years.
