Congrats MFB. This is looking very sweet on various levels. I like the amount of MIDI implementation, and the metal case.

NICE.

Sweetness... Looks 100% analogue. Wonder if it has DINSYNC24 to interface it to old boxes...

Wow, both the synth and the drumbox sound mint. And that is just from a crappy youtube demo video quality!

It seems that he also stepped up the manfctr. quality as well,thus the much higher cost.

$1100

Definitely still competitive with what's out there, though

That is probably the best demo vid i've seen so far this Messe.

Must say i'm really impressed by the drum machine. I liked the earlier MFB DM's, but the new one seems a definite step up.

edit - is the link in the OP right about the release date? Seems May/June?

I've certainly got my eye on this one.

MAy have to also buy the new Korg mind you.

Can't wait for proper sound demos of both of these really intriguing new drum machines.

If everything stays on schedule it looks like the Tanzbär will be released later this month. Is anyone else excited for this or looking to get one? I've never been too excited about MFB gear, but their latest offerings including the Dominion has peeked my interest quite a bit. They have a great vintage analog sound while offering a lot of modern features. They cost more than previous MFB offerings, but most of their products were cheap to begin with and these seem to be of much better standards.

The Tanzbär build quality looks solid and the workflow on this thing seems like it will be lightning fast for editing and composing. With 14 analog drum parts in addition to a simple analog bass part along with a melody part is more than most drum machines out there. The cool thing about this is you could use these 2 synths parts to control and drive any other synths you want in conjunction with the Tanzbär. That's what I plan to do at least. It seems as though issues the 522 had are gone with this, but of course everything remains to be seen.

I also like the fact that it's an 808-like drum machine, which will hopefully give it niche sound. I like the original 808 kick sound, but the rest I could care less about and rather have something different. The other thing I like about this afaik is that the Tanzbär doesn't use samples like a lot of 'analog' drum machines do. It has a lot of cool features like being able to record knob movements on the fly is really nice.

Same on my phone.

Edit - looking at the comments on their Facebook page, it seems to be a widespread problem.

Amazing. I will buy one of these. I wonder how big of a hassle it would be to get one from Canada?

Berliners sure know their drum sounds.

This sounds subjectively better than a TR for me.

Gonna get one some time definitely!
