[Musikmesse] Akai launches a drum machine
Rhythm Wolf is the name of the new drum machine and bass synth that Akai will unveil tomorrow at Musikmesse 2014 in Frankfurt.
The Rhythm Wolf combines an analog drum machine and a bass synth, both inspired by classic gear and intended for electronic and urban musicians.
The drum machine section features 5 sounds (kick, snare, closed and open hi-hats and metallic percussion), and you can change the tuning, amplitude envelopes and volume of each element separately.
The bass synth includes an oscillator with saw and square waveforms, a classic filter and a filter envelope with variable decay.
The module also features 6 MPC pads, a 32-step sequencer, Swing, Pattern Select and Tempo functions and the Hown button allows for sending the sound to a custom distorted signal patch for added character.
The Rhythm Wolf offers USB MIDI, MIDI DIN in and out, two independent audio outputs for the drum machine and the bass synth and a Gate Trigger.
The Akai Rhythm Wolf will be available this summer for the US price of $199.99.
