Can your drum machine do this?
This video, via tblv9300, takes a look at using the Dave Smith Instruments Tempest drum machine as a 6-voice polyphonic synth module.
The DSI Tempest is based on analog voices tailored to percussion, but the drum machine has a lot of synthesis capabilities that go beyond traditional drum syth sounds, as this video demonstrates.
No effects added. Tempest stereo outputs to USB audio interface into Ableton Live.
