Beautiful looking machine, love the blue n white livery.. Like the sound and features, my TR8S is sold I've kept the Digitakt as my only drum machine now but can see maybe getting something like this down the track, has a more raw and less refined sound which is nice. Hard for me to really justify a drum machine when 90% of the drums I use are coming from software and samples, they just sound right the way you want them in a DAW.

OLED mod possible?

Regardless of the additional features in the new version, strangely enough I think the original one is way classier.

I think they are different enough to justify having them both. I'm not going to sell my Tanzbär 1 for this.

Looks nice - very close to the Jomox Alpha Base, isn't it?

in what way..?? confoosed

kcearl 5th May 2018 01:29 PM

Theyre both drum machines :heh:

fiddlestickz 5th May 2018 01:33 PM

Look forward to seeing the plugin for loading drum samples, if it's good as I hope I will buy one of these and probably even dump my Digitakt too, just ride this one cool blue drum machine.

MFB have been making drum machines that look like that for more than a decade.
It just looks like a bigger 502 or something.

Featurewise? Analogue sources, samples, on-board FM synth...

ok my bad I thought he meant it looked like an Alpha base..crossed wires.. :)

John Difool 5th May 2018 05:57 PM

980€, expected delivery 3 months

Deleted b598644 7th May 2018 06:25 PM

is it me or is that kickdrum nothing more than a sweeped tone? confoosed

PS : such a shame they discontinued the MFB Synth II!
I had one years ago but i sold it :facepalm: 3 oscillators and a sequencer.

In the current monosynth trend that would have sold like hotcakes if it was about 399 euro.

Didn't realize this had an FM synth too. Definitely looks like a fun box and sounds good.

fiddlestickz 8th May 2018 12:46 AM

I'm 95% deffo down for this machine, love the profile, the colour scheme is amazing, you can see all the fonts so clearly which is a huge thing for me. As much as I enjoyed the TR8S selling it wasn't hard to do. This machine will sit on top of my Virus perfectly, just want to see the plug in now and how it all works to make a final decision.

The Alpha Base I think has many more parameter tweaking possibilities than this. I wouldn't compare them because the Alpha Base in my mind is the pinnacle of modern drum machines. I'd put the Tempest at the #2 slot. But this Tanzbar 2 still looks like a great drum machine.

Couldn't find a list of features on MFB's Tanzbar 2, but saw this summary from a CDM article last week:

MFB have a killer live drum machine + synth in the hybrid Tanzbar-2 - CDM Create Digital Music
  • A built-in bass synth that sounds totally brilliant, with internal melodic programming
  • Analog drum parts, plus digital drum parts (hey, it worked for the 909)
  • Sample loading, via MIDI dump or over USB, so you can load your own samples
  • Tons of front panel parameters for hands-on control of both the analog and digital sections’ parts
  • Dedicated faders for all the parts’ volumes
  • Two additional parameters for each part (accessed by the screen)
  • An LFO you can route to absolutely anything
  • Step sequencer, with per-step parameter automation
  • Separate outs for each part

As cool as this drum machine is, I just dig the sound and feel of the Jomox Alpha Base and would have to put my money there first. But if I didn't have enough to spend on the AB, this would be high on the list for sure.

Great point about the fonts. I'm not completely into the blue color. Doesn't look that classy to me, but whatever. It's a fun throwback color for MFB.

The Tanzbar 2 seems really well thought out kfhkh

I also went looking for specs and they don't have anything up on their website yet thanks for sharing this in the interim. I'm interested to understand and know the sample part, like is it loaded into RAM and how much is there to use, is there adequate HD storage on the machine itself etc..

I'm sticking with the original Tanzbar, but this new one is cool.

Weile 9th May 2018 03:21 AM

Well, at least weather-wise, here in Northern Europe these past few years summer's extended well into September :)

ass_in_gear 9th May 2018 02:44 PM

I bet its a fiddly and quirky thing to get used to.

Im sticking with my SP1200 'dream'

In the UK, summer is usually a day or two in May ;-)

Blue with blue wood? :facepalm:

Weile 11th May 2018 03:19 PM

Is it possible to modulate Tanzbar1 or Tanzbar2 oscillators from external modules??? (Exemple: use FM synths to change Tanzbar kick waves....or use waveshapers to modify Tanzbar snare tones... or use Synth Track from Tanzbar as soundsource to a modular rack).
