Ninstruments SP-12/Drumulator Drum Module (Sneak Preview)

ninstrument-drumulatorNinstrument has introduced a new Eurorack drum synth module, the SP-12/Drumulator.

The SP-12/Drumulatori is a 10 HP Euro module, based on the DSP Synthesizers DSP-D8 drum chip.

Here’s what Ninstrument’s Chris Blarsky has to say about the new module:

“Seeing this made me long for the older 80’s drum machines and I knew it would also be nice if I could get this into my eurorack using the least amount of space(HP) as possible. Well, getting 8 vintage percussion sounds into 10HP works for me!”

Here is a video demo of the SP-12/Drumulator module in action: Continue reading

Olympia Noise Co has released Patterning – a new drum machine for iPad that they describe as ‘as beautiful as it is powerful.
