new drum machine from dave smith + roger linn



Quote:
The mock-up revealed some of the basic features planned for the BoomChik, though these may change in development. Most exciting: it’s a hybrid digital / analog drum synth, with four analog voices and one digital voice. Half of the unit is a 4×4 set of pads, while the other half handles sounds and recording facilities. The front panel also shows effects (delay with feedback, resonance, reverb, etc.), a resonant low-pass filter, and distortion.
say whaaaaat?

i want one...yesterday.

Hmm... if Dave does his synthesis as well as he normally does... then this will be sick.

However, i think I still feel either a JoeMox or a Vermona calling first..

Looks pretty much like the baby of an Evolver and an MPC 60 to me...
If it could sound like it looks like, I would definitely cop one !!

Dave Smith of Dave Smith Instruments has been busy, and although the BoomChik drum machine / synth won't be ready for 9-12 months, the fact that it's being developed in association with Roger Linn means should make it a winner - well, two industry heavyweights working on one box? We could probably mark this one 11 out of 10 right now...

That was futuremusic magazine's namm blog.

Looks promising! Does it sample?

I spoke to Dave Smith and he said that the BoomChick does not sample but they may implement a way to import samples into the unit. He also said that it would not be another MPC. I still think that this will probably be a great sounding unit. I guess we will have to wait and see.... maybe they can make the sampling an option if it wasn't part of the original design?

Small LCD tutt , No sampler, and what about USB or card reader, no built in synth (atleast a mono 'MEK' type thing).

Lets see.

None of that matters... it's not an MPC.

You can put the "boom chik" next to your "Litte Phatty" and have the most embarrassingly named studio gear ev-ar. Now we just need the "wokka wokka" auto-wah!
