Songs lovers will certainly frequently inform you that Roland’s TR-808 brought to life modern-day music. Acid residence, rap, techno and other categories owe some of their initial (and even existing) appears to that artificial beat. Moritz Simon Geist values the effort, but has actually developed an option for those who think the drum device is a little too perfect: his MR-808 installation has robotic limbs playing all the equivalent real-world instruments, right down to the cowbell. A laptop computer artist at the helm sends MIDI input to an Arduino controller that then causes the robot’s instrument motors and matching lights. The effect is an one-of-a-kind mix of remarkable signs with imprecise, almost natural noises– picture 808 State or Kanye West changing each and every equipment with a live band and you have actually realized. Although the mere size of the MR-808 the sad thing is nixes possibilities you’ll ever before see one at the neighborhood nightclub, it might offer any of Geist’s recorded popular music one of the a lot more distinct vibes we’ve heard.

Exactly what does previous pro football member and Expendables actor Terry Crews do when he isn & rsquo; t flying through the air, blowing things up, and extolling the virtues of Old Spice deodorant? The answer pertains to us from a brand-new playable advertisement on Vimeo (below): he gets hectic on a fantastical 20-piece drum kit controlled by his muscles; a kit that includes (among other things) a huge wailing head and a trio of flame saxes. After putting on a remarkable demo performance, Crews lets you control the popular music from your keyboard; via his muscles, naturally. You can easily upload and share your jams, too– we can merely visualize the envious looks on our good friends & rsquo; encounters when they get a taste of our virtuosity.

Here it is — the final piece in your all fabric New Order cover band. This $ 30 wearable drum machine brings a much needed edge to ThinkGeeks existing collection of soft-circuit “instruments.” You can choose from seven different drum kits, including the ubiquitous 808 and a palette of chip tune effects. The T-shirt’s integrated recorder lets you build loops up to three minutes long and endlessly layer on the sounds. Just keep piling ‘em on until your old-school hip hop homage has become an impenetrable wall of noise that washes over you as you walk down the street, proclaiming your geekdom in rhythm. And, of course, the included mini amp cranks all the way up to 11. Check out the videos after the break to see MC Lars and Dex Fontaine demo the capabilities of the personal percussion pullover.
No, this isn’t a recycled news item from the 1980s — it’s 2011, and MJ Mahon and 8 Bit Weapon have just announced the release of the Apple II DMS Drummer, a wavetable-based drum sequencer for Apple II-era machines. The monophonic synth reproduces eight drum sounds like bass, snare, rim shot, hand clap, tom, hat open, hat closed and “lazer,” along with a sequencer that lets you plug in up to 16 drum patterns across 256 slots. Seems like just the thing for chiptune composers hankering for a way to make authentic eight-bit drum tracks using vintage Apple hardware. System requirements call for an Apple IIe, IIc, IIc+ or IIgs with 80-column capability and a 5.25-inch floppy drive — you know, pretty modern stuff. A limited demo version is available, but if that doesn’t satisfy, you can either buy it on a floppy for $ 14.95 or download a .dsk disk image for $ 9.95. Oh, and neither require a time-traveling DeLorean to go back to 1985.
Slappin’ da bass, mon! Bill Ruppert has put up another Effectology video, this time showing how to create a steel drum effect with just a bunch of EHX guitar effects.
The best part? The maracas!
The maracas or shaker sound was produced by sliding an EHX manual across the guitar strings. Using EQ to lower the bass and increase the middle frequencies helps shape the sound.
The opening drone sound was recorded in two parts. The surf or ocean wave sound is white noise from a Big Muff fuzz manually filtered by a Micro Synthesizer pedal.

Talk about just in time. With merely weeks to go before Mr. Claus makes his wintry journey ’round the globe, Mad Catz has decided to finally ship a peripheral that was introduced way back in June. Without a doubt, the MIDI Pro adapter is one of the more intriguing music game accessories to hit the open market, enabling Rock Band 3 owners to use most MIDI keyboards and drum sets with the title. The box is shipping as we speak for Sony’s PS3 and Nintendo’s Wii, and the Xbox 360 variant should be headed to Best Buy in the coming hours. If you’ll recall, this guy’s also designed to work with the forthcoming Rock Band 3 Squier guitar / controller, and it even features a velocity sensitive adjustment for MIDI drums designed to reduce cross-talk during play. At $ 39.99, it’s a no-brainer for those who already own a MIDI instrument or two, but we just might be more excited about the hacking possibilities than anything else. DIYers, get at it!

This is my app Drum Machine running in the WP7 emulator. The app has been released on the Zune some weeks ago and due to the positive feedback I decided to port it to the Windows Phone 7. Porting took me 2 days including redoing most of the graphics (due to the higher resolution of the phone). The app features – 160 sound samples – 7 drum types – automated drumrolls – metronome (visual + audio, 40-340 bpm) – discolight feature – record and playback – arranging/resizing and customizing the drums – volume options to adjust song playback volume levels – dynamic drumset – Create your own arrangements. No limits other than screensize – drum animations (size and color) – preset buttons to load preset drumkits in arrange mode
