every drummachine has distinctive kick , hi-hat, snare... sound . İf you want strongest kick sound , you should get tr909 or if you want metalic hi-hat ,cymball sound you should buy korg 55 so on. I mean you need more drum machine than one for rhythmic beast that you imagine. Elektron drum machine is flexible drum machine, it really changes sound but it is digital drum machine , also you need separate analog clap machine.

I wouldn't even call it a clone. It's something on it's own.

Nope but they include pieces of paper that you can put over your knobs and write down your settings. Lovely!
I actually like the lack of patch storage.

so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

If you can afford it you won't regret it.

i can afford it, i just dont really need it, and that money could be better spent elsewhere... like on a new mic and a PA

Vermonas at their price I find really overrated. I'll probably get flamed but if you like the Vermona sound just go buy some Techstar brains off Ebay for $100 or so. 305 and a 204 would be best. Or a 306.

I agree somewhat I think the only thing decent is the toms on the vermona, but you can just pull off FM drum sounds with synths why not get something punchy and cool like a spectral audio neptune II for that. I really think the kick/snare/hats/clap are totally weak for the price and yeah I wouldn't really even use one anyway. :D

one of the best solutions for cool analog drum sounds cheap is to run some cheaper drum machine into a moogerfooger ring mod.

I got mine pretty cheap and I'm a bit tired of vintage equipment that need care etc.

Joey: Hookers and blow?




Geesh, I'm already drooling at a perFOURmer. Imagine a sexy rack with those together.

If in the end you are going to trigger a drum synth with a separate sequencer, then my choice for the drum synth is some modular synth, analog or digital. Make your own drums.

Please find attached an example of modular drum synthesis - my attempt to create a "TR-like" snare sound. What do you think of it?


cheers,
Ian
