Dr. Böhm Digital Drums

   0 reviews  -  2570 views
    Dr. Böhm DIGITAL DRUMS is a rhythm machine made in Germany in '82.-'83., that’s been called ''the German Linndrum''.

    It came in 2 versions:

    1. as a drum machine
    2. as a drum machine + analog accompaniment, like this one.

    It has 13 bit, 21.3 kHz digital drum samples and analog sound generation for the accompaniment. This machine has preset rhythms (36 classic rhythms x 4 variation for each + autofills, breaks and solos for each) and most importantly, it is also programmable (multiple sounds per step!), in step by step mode or in real-time while playing a loop (it has a metronome too); you can set measures, global tempos, lengths...

    On the accompaniment version (like is this machine), a dedicated keyboard can be attached (it is included), in order to set chords while playing live. The cords are not programmable, only drums are.

    It has two 1/4inch outs (for stereo out), one 1/4inch stereo headphone output, ''cassette'' out (for saving memory) and ''trigger'' output for FSK synching (i can explain this if needed).
