Drum Machines without sequencers Drum Machines & Samplers
Old 5 days ago
Don't forget those old analogue drum synths, like Simmons SDS series, Tama Techstar series, Pearl Drum-X and SC-40. Lots of other, rather obscure brands out there (Firstline, MPC etc.).
They mostly sound amazing, but the really old ones need to be triggered with pads or a MIDI-to-Trigger-interface. I bought one (no-name, obviously homebrew) from Ebay years ago, and it even transmits velocity via its eight trigger outputs (a magic that seems to be completely lost with modern trigger thingies - but who needs velocity with percussive sounds anyway, when endless clickity-clicking is all the rage...)!

Moog DFAM is interesting if you're looking for a quirky drum synth (yes it has a basic sequencer), as others mention you already have great stuff

Thanks everybody - I quite fancy the Nord Drum 2 now

Anybody got one to sell?

The Drum 2 actually looks better than the Drum 3

If you have a Mac check out Drumspillage by audio spillage.

I've got a DRM-1 Mk 11, an AiR Base 99, an Mbase 11, a Kawai XD-5, an A5000 sampler, and an Emax.

I'm reporting Zerocrossing for failing to recommend at least a cirklon + drum mux + full modular setup.
