Awesome analog drum machine with loads of knobs to tweak and get 808 style drums with advanced programming features.
* analogue drum-computer with tight step-sequencer and 16 instruments
* immediate control, integration of MIDI and CV/Gate
* different step-lengths per instrument
* programmable accent- and pitch-bend-functions
* 144 patterns with A/B-variations, fill-function to chain various patterns
* 3 CV- and 2 Gate channels
* roll- and flam-recording
* individual and global swing-quantization
* recording of control-value per step
* 12 individual outputs, stereo output
* MIDI- and clock-sync, MIDI-dump
* metal chassis with wood side panels
Using the fill-function, patterns can be chained for longer sequences. In addition, every pattern offers A/B variations that can be switched manually or automatically for further flexibility. Also, Tanzbär allows saving 16 flame and roll-variations.
The step-length is controllable per instrument, allowing easy creation of polyrhythmic structures. Possible resolutions are 32th and 16th steps as well as 16th- and 8th triplet-steps. The shuffle amount can be continuously controlled globally and per instrument.
Each instrument offers three accent intensities. Add the bend-function to create glides and LFO-like sweeps for bass drum 1/2, snare drum and toms 2/3.
In addition to the percussion-instruments, Tanzbär offers addressing external instruments using its two CV/Gate outputs; one being able to control dynamics via a third CV-output. The same tracks are routed to the internal bass- and melody-synthesizer voices. An ideal solution to pre-listen and program patterns without any need for external equipment.
The CV/Gate-sequencer offers a range of three octaves and is programmable using two methods. All parameters are output via MIDI, allowing control of external instruments. The drum-computer can be synchronized via MIDI- and clock-signals.
Finally, Tanzbär not only offers a master volume knob but individual level controls and mute-functions per instrument. The unit provides a stereo output as well as twelve individual outputs.
