A drum machine for $50?
That may sound like a crazy project, but that’s what the Teenage Engineering team introduced at Moogfest last week.
The prototype of this new Teenage Engineering drum machine is ultra compact (the board fits in an envelope) and features 2 knobs with parameter lock to each of the 16 steps of the sequencer, as well as various buttons for sound, pattern, tempo select, effect, as well as play and write modes.
The drum machine uses an EFM 32 chip and a screen should be added to the prototype, which should slightly increase its dimensions. Note that there is no MIDI implemented (yet?)?
Teenage Engineering is expecting a public release this summer, with a $50 / 50€ price point. A pre-series of 200 modules should previously be sent to artists for testing.
