More than a drum machine
Luke-dool 05.10.2021
I waited a while to get my hands on one of these but it was 100% worth it. This thing is much more than a drum machine/synth. It's an inspiration machine. Although slightly intimidated by its seeming complexity at first I was actually, within a couple of minutes of using it, creating sounds and patterns I just wouldn't have ever done so using anything else. The thing sounds like a beast and is capable of bone rattling bass, head snapping snares, feedback loops, drones and IDM/glitch style sound design. It's also built like a tank and has a satisfying weightiness to it. It's not cheap though and as such if what you are after is a more conventional drum machine with a standard approach to sequencing (as opposed to pulsar 23's parrallel loopers approach) this might not be the machine for you. However, if you are like me this thing might lead you down musical avenues you just wouldn't have reached otherwise.

Einzigartige Drummaschine
kvomuetliberg 12.12.2021
Ist man auf der Suche nach Innovation im Bereich Hardware Drummaschine, führt kein Weg vorbei am Soma Pulsar-23.
Vlad Kreimer hat hier ohne Furcht vor etablierten aber ewig wiedergekauten Konzepten neue Wege eingeschlagen. Das vierstimmige semi-modulare Instrument ist ein grosser Abenteuerspielplatz, welcher mit seinen 32 soundgenerierenden sowie Steuerspannungs-Modulen zum experimentieren einladen. Als alrernative zum Kabel patchen lassen sich die Signale über den eigenen Körper leiten, indem man die herausstehenden Patch-Pins jeweils mit dem Finger berührt - die Stärke des Kontakts der Finger zum Pin kann zudem zur Signal-Attenuierung benutzt werden! Die Vier Stimmen klingen oft roh und industriell und lassen sich bis zur Unkenntlichkeit kreuzmodulieren und durch Distortion, Hall sowie Delay drehen.
Der Pulsar-23 ist stabil und schwer wie ein Panzer. Bei häufigem Transport wird einem das Gewicht wochl sicher das eine oder andere Mal auffallen, jedoch schafft die Bauweise eine zusätzliche Befriedigung in punkto Haptik. Man würde es gar wagen, mit dem Auto darüber zu rollen.
Ein eizigartiges Stück Drum-Maschine für die zukünftige hall of fame, werde ich nicht mehr hergeben!
