    Dave Smith Instruments Tempest - "Disappointing"

    10/27/14

    You can read the full specs at the manufacturer's official website. UTILIZATION Using it demands some time to get familiar with it, it's a complex and powerful synth, as well as a sequencer. Editing sounds is rather pleasant, you rarely have to pu…

  • Roland TR-909

    Roland TR-909 - "The TR 909 IS THE TRUE BOSS!!!"

    09/15/14

    Easy to program, midi, roland old-school sync, and the typical roland sequencer that earned the TR its reputation. I now think the sequencer of the 808 is more "lively." It has a magical groove which isn't as present on the 909, except when play w…

    Boss DR-880 Dr. Rhythm - "Overpriced"

    08/20/14

    MIDI, audio in, out, etc. UTILIZATION I have the DR3 and this one was lent to me. I had heard a lot about it and it was the perfect chance to try it out! If you want to edit anything, you'd better be a MASTER with drum machines and have a lot of p…

    Boss DR-880 Dr. Rhythm - "Perfect if you like to program"

    11/29/13

    See the manufacturer's specs and other reviews on AF. This yellow metal box is ultra stable and sturdy and the display can be easily read even if you are short-sighted. UTILIZATION The overall setup is rather simple if you don't venture too far. T…

    Dave Smith Instruments Tempest - "Online Community"

    10/25/12

    The Dave Smith Instruments Tempest is an analog drum machine and synth. It cost almost 2 thousand dollars but is well worth the money considering all of the features you get with the Tempest. The Dave Smith Instruments Tempest has a bright LED displ…

    Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1UW MKII - "worth the money"

    10/25/12

    The Electron Machinedrum SPS-1 UW MKII is a drum synth and sampler that you can sequence on and program all of your kits with. It has a 2.5MB memory on it. Also, it does have some pretty simple and basic effects. The cost of the Machinedrum SPS-1 UW …

    Dave Smith Instruments Tempest - "Unique in it genre"

    08/14/12

    The Tempest has a midi in and out, but right now only the midi in works, we'll see what the upcoming updates bring with themselves. In terms of effects, there is a distortion section and a compressor, which works only on the master output, and the…

    Yamaha RY30 - "A classic drum machine"

    07/18/12

    The Yamaha RY-30 Rhythm Programmer is a classic drum machine, that is decades old, but still very usable today. The drum sounds are 16-bit, 48kHz PCM with digital multimode filters. The RY-30 can store up to 100 user patterns and 20 songs, and it com…

    Dave Smith Instruments Tempest - Deathkillaz's review

    06/18/12

    The features are available at the manufacturer's website, so it makes no sense to list them here. UTILIZATION Even if it has a good number of controls on the front panel, you still need to browse the menus to access the countless functions of Tempe…

    Dave Smith Instruments Tempest - "Perfect!"

    05/02/12

    The best. It doesn't lie on paper nor to the ears. No editor, but is it really necessary? I would've preferred a wider palette of preset analog sounds. UTILIZATION If you have some analog background, the creation process goes fast. It took me two…
