XO Devices Intros 1U Drum Modules Based On The TR-808

The line includes the Acid Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Hi-Hats and Low/Mid/High Conga/Tom.

XO Devices has launched a Kickstarter project to fund production of a new line of 1U drum modules, based on the voices of the classic Roland TR-808 drum machine.

The line includes the Acid Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Hi-Hats and Low/Mid/High Conga/Tom.

While the series is 1U, they also offer adapters that let you use 3 rows of 1U modules in the Intellijel format within any 3U rack. Also available in the add-ons is MP40, a multi-power cable that allows powering 3 modules while using a single socket on your bus board.

Pricing and Availability

The 1U drum modules are available to project backers starting at about $54 USD.

Note: Crowdfunding projects can involve risk, which is documented at the project site.

    1. The thing with additional CV inputs is that it can be frustrating to limit it to a couple parameters only, and some would inevitably ask why only certain modules have CV inputs over a limited number of parameters.
      A somewhat bigger and more versatile drum synth would make more sense then, and may see the light of day in the future…

  1. I’d love some pitch control too, but even as-is this will let me add drums to my main synth voice case without having to carry my techno system around with it. Backed.
