ST Modular Trommelmaschine
18 HP 3-Voice Hybrid Drum Synthesizer
TROMMELMASCHINE is a three-voice digital and analog drum module that can be used to create all kinds of kick drums and drum grooves.
It features a DIGITAL DRUM VOICE (D) with PITCH and TONE control that has two modes: KICK and PERC. Press and hold the MODE switch for one second to switch between the two modes. In KICK mode (LED flashes slowly) the sliders are MOD1 = DECAY, MOD2 = TRANSIENT, MOD3 = PITCH ENV and in PERC mode (LED flashes quickly) MOD1 = COLOR, MOD2 = DECAY and MOD3 = FM AMT. PITCH and MOD can be changed manually or via CV with dedicated attenuators. If nothing is connected to the CV inputs, the MOD CV attenuators change the response curve of the MOD sliders. Turn them to the right to get a linear response and to the left to get a logarithmic response. This facilitates precise adjustment of the slider positions. The ANALOG DRUM (A) voice has DECAY, DRIVE and PENV (pitch envelope) sliders, plus PITCH and LENGTH (pitch envelope length) potentiometers. These can also be controlled via CV. The PITCH CV input tracks 1V/OCT and can be used to play notes. The third voice is a NOISE GENERATOR (N) with COLOR control and DECAY slider. The decay of the noise can also be controlled via CV.
All voices have individual trigger inputs (D. TRIG is normalized to the other trigger inputs) and individual outputs and are also summed using an internal mixer at the MAIN output. The volume of each channel can be changed with the volume pots. Loudness LEDs indicate when a voice is close to clipping.
