Electro-Harmonix has introduced two new analog drum synth pedals, the Crash Pad and Super Space Drum, based on a vintage set of analog drum synthesizers:
- Like the original from 1980, the new Crash Pad can create an array of drum sounds and ‘other-worldly’ oscillation sweeps, as well as process external sounds thru its resonant filter. It’s also been updated to respond to expression pedal/CV input for external control over the filter in real-time.
- The Super Space Drum is a reissue of the 1979 original. It uses analog synthesis techniques to create sounds ranging from deep kicks to high toms to sci-fi drums. Trigger it from the built-in pushbutton or an external (non-MIDI) electronic drum pad. Pass external sounds through the gated amplifier via the aux input.
