Erica Synths Perkons HD-01 Drum Machine In Depth Review

In his latest loopop video review, host Ziv Eliraz takes an in-depth look at the Erica Synths Perkons HD-01 drum machine.

The Perkons HD-01 features four versatile hybrid voices (digital sound engine + analog multimode filter with overdrive) and a sequencer with simultaneous control over all four percussion tracks.

While the Perkons may not have as many features as some drum machines, it features chunky build quality, its own unique character, and a hands-on knobby user interface.
