Techno machine

Signalchef, 26.12.2017
This dummachine is partly analog, partly digital.

The kick is analog with a snippet of digital audio as the click, u can choose between 16 different impulses.

The same goes for all the other sounds except the sample based knobs which can change tune and decay.

I haven't tried it yet but it is possible to replace the digital samples and impulses with a computer, so u can make a custom sound set.

Also; the knobs are digitally controlled, so recall is possible for presets and there is the option to record your knob movements. (The knobs do not move by themselves) :-)
Another mode will produce sound as to which position the knobs are set to, this can give cool effects, in order to give a break feel.

Per memory slot u can shoose between A/B , giving more flexibility and u can chain scenes to make your loop more interesting.

It has lot's of power in the low end, the rhythms are great, shuffle is very funky, decay is able to go very short, almost clicky. The length is dependant on the sample length.

Few downsides, the tempo knob is easy to hit.

Difficult machine but very rewarding.

Sounds Great, Annoying to Use

Benzenec, 15.07.2018
I really looked forward to the Tanzmaus coming out, but it didn't exactly live up to my expectations. The sounds range from incredible (one of the best kicks ever IMO) to not so good (snare and clap are both weak). It's always nice to have individual outputs, even if they're 3.5 mm. For the premium price, the build quality is lacklustre; the knobs are OK but the buttons feel very cheap and fragile. However, the real killer (and the reason I sold it) is the TERRIBLE user interface. There are way too many button combinations to memorize, and the lack of a display makes all of this blind menu diving a hassle. When I first got it out of the box I couldn't even figure out how to get it to play without reading the manual. I think it had a lot of potential, but it just lacks the immediacy I expect from a simple X0X-style sequencer. Acidlab is another German company doing similar work, but their drum machines are much more FUN to use. I'd recommend one of their drum machines over MFB's any day of the week.
