Released in 1988, the Yamaha DD10 was aimed at the home market for those who fancied banging out a few beats in a self-contained. self-amplified ‘laptop’ unit.
- 8-bit low-bandwidth sounds, with some sounds reused at different pitches
- No interpolation or anti-aliasing, the transposed samples are very crunchy.
- Velocity sensitive pads, albeit only at two levels – half volume and maximum volume.
- The sounds can be played with velocity using the unit’s limited MIDI spec, though.
- 26 drum, percussion and sound effects samples
