  • have you tried posting this ad on the elektron user forum chief?

    Someone's likely to snap up your offer, i know someone is trying to buy a biscuit if you take the sell then buy route.

  • thanks gee...
    done and done...

  • "both kick tons of asses.." haha!

    good times.

  • @edison - wondering if you got the tempest; I'm interested in the edison review.

  • yo man!
    just randomly clicked this....
    didn't realize it was a topic i started hella long ago!
    i've since gotten rid of the tempest...
    i think the thing sounds great!...
    DSI is an amazing team of dudes...

    but in the long run...
    analog drums are wack...
    im a drum guy, as in im mostly obsessed with them...
    and synthesized drums are great layering tools...
    but is a layer worth 2000$
    nope...
    and are analog drums ever going to beat audio....
    no

    the tempest makes a really nice, and extremely awkward synth...
    and makes incredible noisy looping goodness..
    but it wasn't my favorite by a long shot...

    the new pro 02 however...
    whooo....
    that looks like serious mayhem...

  • "are analog drums ever going to beat audio"

    analog is audio too... just sayin' ;D

  • hahah....
    yea i meant recorded verse analog synthesis...
    you know bro!
    you trollin muthafucka!!!!!
    haha
    lets hang out soon hoss !
    miss you

    sting!

  • cheers edison!

  • Both people I know that have had Tempests have gotten rid of them. As someone who dreams of that caliber of gear I gotta say it surprises me, but then again, when was the last time I used an analog style plug-in for drums? Nope. Can't remember doing it once. Samples of analog gear? Sure all the time! But I load those samples up to lay down alongside recorded drums to "fatten them up", and I use samples because someone has rigged that analog gear so that it sounds it's best before recording it; I dunno how to create a brilliant analog kick drum.

    People are attracted to the Tempest because of the workflow and interface - give me an MPC with that many knobs and controls on the front panel for sample manipulation, and THEN we'd be talking.

  • @kinetic
    exactly!!!!!
    yea man... its a great box, built super well...
    the workflow is well thought out...
    i know a couple dudes who work at DSI ...
    they're dang geniuses...

    all of us people who make electronic things... have analog drum samples X1000
    so the real deal is nice, but unnecessary...

    get an octatrack!
    if you're that into sampling...
    it is a magical sample destroyer...

  • @edison

    do you use an octatrack? i'm trying to find more examples of sample based hip hop stuff done on it. no offense to techno styles but that's all i seem to see made on it.

    this is the closest i could find

  • @mega...
    yes i do!...
    i have 2 of them...
    getting some awesome results...
    been putting together a live set with a drummer and a guy on modulars this month....

    octatrack is crazy, deep, flexible and powerful...
    the swing is dope, sampling is easy, or just importing to flash cards...

    im basically building out 5 or 6 loops in ableton...
    bouncing them to the card....
    i have my whole drum library on the card too...
    then just go crazy from there...

    highly highly suggest it...

  • Nice! Would love to see some video or hear some audio from the show if you can manage it!

  • +1 to @megamaeng's suggestion!
