Super Space Drum

Robert814, 18.09.2016
This is an authentic sounding classic synth drum. A bit of a "One Trick Pony"? - perhaps? Don't get it if you use (or want to use) MIDI though! It's true analogue and has no MIDI function. It is possible to use the EH 8-Step Program to trigger it - that does have a MIDI input. Then you'll have to pay more than the Space Drum itself. Some people hate the sound of these things (They were rather over used in the '80's pop scene), but if you want the real classic vibe this delivers it. There is the added option of modulating the sound which is switchable, so you can have a more "Alien" sound if you choose, or switch this completely out. The activation button is a rather lightweight white plastic capped "Keyboard switch" (like on a computer), so don't expect something as tough as on a guitar stompbox. This does make it easy to operate with one finger in time with the rest of the music though. There is also an input trigger socket if you have your own pad or sequencer. I've tried an instrument through the aux input socket, but it only sounds while the device is triggered. It's of more use as part of an analogue synthesiser setup than an effects pedal for an instrument.

Analogue Vintage Key Chain Remake!

10.08.2016
So one thing in advance: If you work with USB toys or use only the midformat, you can search directly for another product! Sounds arrogant, but is so, the device does not use you anything.

So who is allowed to read more? On the one hand, the drummers were interested in analog electronic old-fashion sound and the ladies and gentlemen from the analog synthesizer fraction.

The sound is varied and the device sounds like the original. Sound samples can be found on almost every record with electronic music from the late 70s and early 80s. Or just on the net. Sound is hard to describe, I am completely satisfied with the sound. The device fits perfectly from the sound to my analog equipment.

The SuperSpace drum has a trigger in which can process almost every signal according to a short but crisp, well-written instruction manual. I tested gate signals from Döpfer, Moog, EHX, Akai, Aturia. This is problem-free, it is synonymous to the older Moog S-trigger signal function, I can not test for a suitable Moogoldtimer unfortunately. The device also works with CV voltages and clock signals as long as the voltage is sufficient.

This means almost any analog synthesizer or sequencer with a gate or clock output can control the device. The men from the Döpfer / Eurorackecke think of the necessary 3.5mm / 6.3mm adapter cable. Otherwise a commercially available Klinkenkabel with 6,3mm plug.

Drummers can look forward to a device that works with cheap rubber pads and roof plate beats or even a high end pad with elf forest sticks. This means that every real drum kit can be extended by an electronic kick.

Important, no matter whether drummer or synthmensch, please turn the control with the inscription SENS to adjust the level to the triggere inlet. Otherwise you hear nothing and here write again 99 people that no sound rauskommt.

There is a small gimmick, an audio input. If a cable is plugged in with an audio signal, the internal oscillator is switched off and the supplied audio signal is, so to say, gated. There can be interesting sounds, the appropriate keywords are clock divider, Gatelänge.

Unfortunately with this device the Potis really very close together, one must be able to live with. If you can, you get a very well processed instrument with power supply and short instructions in English in decent packaging at a nice price.

Conclusion: The device is fun, is easy to use, sounds good and you do not have to connect tangerines to sound like the same! ;)
