The DMX is one of the classic drummachines. It offers 24 different sounds on 8 polyphonic voices with individual and mix output. The voices can be tuned, and there is a swing function available. The sequencer can hold 100 positions, and there are 50 songs storable. The 8 voices each have a VCA on a slider and trigger and CV in on Molex connectors.
