  1. One cool bit: Glen said the clap sound is made from three different gate triggers. To me, perhaps optimistically, that sounds like it could be adjusted via firmware update. Or maybe even configurable via the MIDI Control Center.

    Also, according to Glen: the same engineer did the sequencers for the DB, BS and BSP. Between now and the end of the year, he’s going to be tasked with doing updates on the BS and BSP before moving ‘on to the next project’.

  2. Possibly sweet side effect from the DrumBrute having all of those 1/8″ outputs: increases the chances we’ll see a nice little mixer with 1/8″ inputs for this, volcas, POs, etc.
