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.

A machine with character
Snag, 17.05.2019
After using the Tanzmaus for almost two years now I still like it. The sounds are great and the device is quite sturdy and compact. Sure, the buttons are small, but it's all about getting used to the device and it's workflow.
The analog sounds are especially good: a punchy kick, juicy claps, a crunchy snare and deep toms.
The default samples are definitely not bad, although personally I'd prefer more hats to choose from at the expense of the large selection of snares and the like. They can be changed to your own liking though, so no real issue here.
My first impression was that the 'Maus is best suitable for some wacky, breakbeaty experimental stuff, but no, it does serious deep 4/4 banging techno without problems!

I could complain about the included manual only being in German. I won't though, as in some wicked way it adds to the feeling of receiving a serious unit of German engineering. The English manual is online anyway, and it has a bit of wacky humor in it.

All in all, quality heavy beats packaged in a small desk footprint!
