Considering a final DRM1X run

Author Considering a final DRM1X run
BugBrand
Without saying a definite yes or no yet, I wanted to gauge how many would be interested if I were to do a final short run of DRM1X (Major Drum Expanders - no more DRM1s themselves).

Price may have to change somewhat from before - I will quote things up once I have rough numbers. I would imagine that I would need 20 to 30 to make it viable.

Of course with the options to swap cases to 5FW or full Powered Frames.
chrisdermo
Gah! I jumped for joy at the title then Dead Banana at it being expanders only. Fwiw if anyone is selling I would buy their drm1 then I would want an expander, but nobody seems to be giving these beauties up!
sungja
Saving my money for a drm2 but if there is still demand for drmx go ahead!
/\/\/\/
In for 2 expanders.

And yeah... DRM1 is probably one of the last things I would ever sell. Especially expanded w00t
Vcoadsr
+1 expander for me too (but you already knew that hihi )
rowsbywoof
I found an expander for my DRM1 here, but I'd still be down for one just to support the reissue... and if I ever stumble on a vanilla DRM1 I want to expand.
seeasound
omg pls yes yes

edit - ahh expanders only d'oh!
Bambou
+1 for an expander Guinness ftw!
BugBrand
OK - not much interest so far, but perhaps if I do a mention in the next mailout. I imagine there should be 30-50 plain DRM1s still in existence and think that expanding them does open up some great possibilities. (sounds like I'm trying to push this! Really I have enough on my plate...)

DRM2 does, of course, somewhat complexify things - still haven't attempted the tweaks to rescue that project. Hopefully that can be sorted within the next few months.
seeasound
Drm's really are soso good...pls rescue it! I got access to a mates drm1 and hes done a diy expander but he would be totally up for the proper one.
sparks
Well count me in! w00t
rpc
+1! I hope this happens. thumbs up
otoskope
Great news! Even though my 2xDRM1 are already expanded, I want to chime in and just say that the expander add so much functionality! It transforms the DRM1 to a complex patchable monosynth with several waveforms, 4 decay envelopes, and fantastic modulation possibilities!

Do not miss out on this!

100% agree thumbs up

DRM1X is a must.

1 expander for me, cheers. smile

i think i'd like another expander. so please count me in.


cheers

OK - consider it something I will seriously consider - once settled back in Bristol. The main question is time - the juggle of regular production.

this may call for a considerable celebration.

Here's the DRM-X holding down the bassline (in a crazy sort of way).

Shout out to batchas for the Radio Music module in Bug format which is playing the higher, plinky melody part.

Fingers crossed!

Expander here please

I'd be interested in an expander for one of my two DRM1's.

If available, will it come in a case with room to add the DRM1 next to it?
thermisonic
Definitely!!!

I know it's not how you do things but I'd be happy to pay up front if need be.

Woah. I love this kind of sound. And the beat is great too.
Pers. I'd put the beat volume more in the front, but most problably the way you mixed is exactly what makes it interesting.
BTW, there's a dedicated DRM1 thread if you make a video with the beast later on.
leeski
Yes pleases Tom, i'd really like to add one to my DRM so a big +1 here applause
BugBrand
Cool! I feel that there is enough interest - I just need to actually find the time to push it all forward...

pustule wrote:

Yes, absolutely - either a 5FW case (for DRM1+X setup) or a full Powered Frame to fit in other red modules alongside..

Brill would be super cool to grab one indeedy, whoopieeeeee

rpc has very kindly sold me his so I'll inherit his interest in an expander too! The Chewbacca Defense
chrisdermo
Good god this module is some serious piece of kit! we're not worthy
otoskope
Then wait till you try it with the expander - or a pair of them! Here's an old pic of my little perc setup (slightly different upper row nowadays):

The most amazing thing, imho, is the complexity of the triggering (4 envs per module, triggable in pairs), and the init levels of amplitude for all sections with pos/neg modulation (making it a synth, not a drum, and allowing for all kinds of ducking madness).
chrisdermo
love
/\/\/\/
That's a rather nice looking setup indeed. I agree about the "ducking"-ness of the envelopes... things seem to smash into each other in just the right away. Further enhanced by a compressor.

I guess it could be any noise source... but, I wonder if it's a DRM heard on the first part of "Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief" from the most recent Radiohead album. That was my first impression anyway.
DickMarker
That's stunning Otoskope - someday, somehow, somewhere I'll snag myself a DRM.
Vcoadsr
Hi Tom, did you get enough interest to do a final run?

Cheers, Phil

Yes, just not enough time, headspace and cashflow to get it happening as yet.
/\/\/\/
Glad you are seeing it through Tom!

Cashflow-wise... might this one make sense to be a pre-order? (Given that the demand is limited to those who have a DRM module.) I would be happy to commit.

Agreed, I’d be happy to preorder this as I’ve been after one for my DRM for a real long time
Vcoadsr
Thanks Tom, good to hear! I also too would be happy to pre-order if that helped you in anyway. Cheers, Phil
ear ear
Happy to pre-order.
BugBrand
Very appreciative of your kind offers to pre-order, but you all know I don't like pre-orders. (ie. you can't tie me down to a schedule just yet!).
/\/\/\/
he's on to us hihi

Of course that's fine - I wasn't meaning to disregard the time or headspace factors either.

In any case w00t
BugBrand
Just ordering panels..

smile Glad to see this happening. It took me a long time to find someone willing to sell me just the extender. Like I said earlier in this thread, I already have a DRM1X, but I'll happily buy an extender to support this run. Though, I'll wait to make sure stock has been bought up by all the players that need them first razz
emenel
I’ll also through my name in the hat. I would definitely buy one of these.

Is there any more news on this?

Would love the expander.....

BugBrand
I haven't forgotten.
BugBrand
Only took a year to get around to moving this! - and they're not tested yet (quite a lot else to test at the moment) but nearing at least. Hopefully enough to go around (max 30 in total - two batches of 15). We'll have to figure what best to do for people running things standalone as the case will have to be swapped.

I'll update here when ready to start taking orders - as I say, got some testing to do first and a few other orders to try to catch up on. Busy busy!

Vcoadsr
Fantastic news Tom!!! Can't wait w00t
sparks
SlayerBadger!
pustule
Great news! screaming goo yo

I'm one of the crew currently running these stand alone. As an option, i'm wondering if you'll have any powered frames available to purchase that would fit the DRM1+X & the DRM2 together? It'd be nice to rack mount them
BugBrand
Yes, I can certainly supply powered frames!
Kafgee
Should I get one and hope for a drm to appear? very frustrating
BugBrand
Kafgee wrote:

No..
I can categorically say that I will not be remaking the DRM1 itself and this run is limited to 30. It is just to bring the extra expansion joy to the DRM1s that never got the +X treatment.

If you find a DRM1 then sure I can sort you out.
(hint, look one page back on this thread)

that sums it up pretty well w00t

AWESOME!!!!

I HOPE I CAN GRAB ONE OF THESE FOR MY DRM1!!!!
Kafgee
seriously, i just don't get it just kidding
rowsbywoof
Tom, do you have any 1 slot blank red panels to complete a powered frame for a DRM1+x and DRM2 configuration? I figure you probably don't but if you do I might be interested in moving my two units to a powered frame. smile
Liddlepud
Are these going to be offered to people who expressed an interest in this thread last year or is it first come first served via the website?

I’m sure he has. If not I can provide you with one thumbs up
BugBrand
Yes, I've still got names listed from last year - building the 30 in two batches, certainly hoping there'll be enough to go round. Price likely around £200 (ex VAT)

And, yes, I do have red 1FW blanks!
thermisonic
Yes! Really pleased you’ve managed to fine time for this!

OK, did the the first batch should be completed today - and the final price is £180 (exc. VAT).

Combined power draw is 90ma/80mA so should work OK with the standard 100mA per side DCDC (eg. regular 5FW case) - but of course will require a power splitter as there is only one power header on those ones.
I also need to check if I have any more old style 5FW cases because the new ones only have 4 front mounting holes - not the full complement of 10 because they were done just for regular 5FW designs..

So, people are welcome to email me now with orders - though I'm still somewhat catching up with Joysticks/DiodeDirectors/BBVs and everything else at the moment!

Crap - I literally only have 2 old ones.
Though hopefully there might be some spare ones floating around with people who've expanded up to full frames.

If/when Tom runs out of 5FW frames for DRM1X, I’ve got a spare one.
Whoever needs it can have it for free, BUT you have to pay shipping cost (which is a fair amount if I have to ship outside of Norway), and I don’t have the power brick...
BugBrand
^^^ just one instance of how bloody lovely my customers are! Lucky me!
sungja
The love is contagious we're not worthy
T. Jervell
My 5FW frame is now on it’s way to a new owner thumbs up
So if you’re in need of one, I won’t be able to help you out anymore....
BugBrand
But I've got some more now (2nd-hand ones back from Patch Point)
SPIKE the Percussionist
Expander arrived today!
(got here a lot faster than expected)
razz

But...now I have to await the enclosure on it's way from Norway to Texas.
w00t

Can't wait to put the updated noiz weapon together!!!
twisted
T. Jervell
Hope it won’t be too long wait.... I guess it (at least) have left Norway by now w00t
BugBrand
I also hope that there aren't going to be issues with power for the 5FW cases --- as mentioned, I checked power consumption again and believed we were fine (10% safety margin on the V+ side) with the regular 100mA per side DCDC (standard for 3 & 5FW cases) but one user seems to have issues, while another works fine. I do have larger DCDCs though only a few PCBs for them, so.. we'll somewhat have to wait and see.
T. Jervell
Oh... well on the bright side the one I shipped originally housed a DRM1X combo so I guess it should work?
leeski
Cool Tom PM'd ya and could do with a case but i seem a bit slow on the update.
Fingers crossed you still have me down.
Cheers.

nanners It's peanut butter jelly time! applause nanners
