Drum Machines under $300
    #4439130 - 07/22/05 07:00 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I have a lower-model ZOOM RhythmTrack123 but the power cord is fucked...
I want to get something with more capabilities anyway.

So, does anyone have experience with drum machines?  :afro:

Get a sampler.


--------------------
when you're watching television the higher brain regions (like the midbrain and the neo-cortex) are shut down, and most activity shifts to the lower brain regions (like the limbic system). The right hemisphere is twice as active as the left, a neurological anomaly. The crossover from left to right releases a surge of the body?s natural opiates: endorphins, which include beta-endorphins and enkephalins. Endorphins are structurally identical to opium and its derivatives (morphine, codeine, heroin, etc.).After just 30 seconds of watching television the brain begins to produce alpha waves, which indicates torpid (almost comatose) rates of activity.

Alesis SR-16 $149.

I have one. I also have its 15 year old ancestor the HR-16.

They are alright as long as you have a keyboard to midi control it with. Its a pain in the ass trying to program beats with little buttons.

These Roland SPD-S Sample pads are great, but a little pricey. My father uses one of these rolands to do cymbals and snare fills and such, and does the constant kick and snare on the keyboard.
SPD-S

Yeah, get a sampler. The ESX-1 by Korg has a lot of drum samples already in it..

But it's probably over 300 bucks. I know it was 3 months ago.

Why not use sequencing software on a computer?
I find them cheaper, more versatile and of better quality.

I'm also curious. Anyone want to chime in on the postive and negative aspects of software versus hardware drum sequencing?

hardware just feels different, especially since a lot of us spend a good amount of time at the computer anyway. but when you're standing over a solid little metal box with all of the buttons and knobs labeled specifically for your sounds... then you know you're making some fucking beats!  :cool:

but on the other hand, sequencing with software is a thousand times faster and it's way easier to program complex beats and rhythm effects.

there's room for both in my world  :heart:

I prefer software. I've used a bunch of hardware drum machines and they all sound so mechanical and basic. Most of them only allow the beats to fall within the time signature, whereas with software you can do anything, put any sound in any place. You can do offbeats, or slightly off time to give a more jazzy feel. I have also used them in combonation which works out pretty well. To each their own.

You should just splurge and get an MPC. You can get an MPC2000 for about 1500 bucks. They are the fucking shit.

i think you should just learn how to use reason and get a soundcard with multiple outs and run that to outboard gear to fatten and warm up the sound.

i assume since you have a drum machine, you have outboard gear. get a multiout soundcard. reason is an all around sweet sampler and when you run multi outs of it, you can make it sound nice. you can also use it to do midi in and midi out on your synths that you may already have.

imo, using sw and hardware together at the same time provides the best results.
