This is from a PAiA the Drum kit. I'm looking for something similar that's prebuilt.

I’m sure I’ve seen a couple of designs that are similar in the DIY world that may be available prebuilt.
Maybe check the Elby page and EMW as well as checking in the DIY forum. :tu:

Thanks, just sent them an e-mail. Also, wondering why my YouTube video didn't post correctly.

Preset sounds but cheap and six voice polyphony:

...or you could try and roll your own. The sounds in the video sound pretty much like filter pings to me. So maybe try plugging some triggers into the audio in of a filter you already have with resonance just at the edge of self oscillation.

Corsynth has released the DR-01 Bass Drum module which can do bass drum and tom sounds:

Paia's 5700 drum modules (pictured) and the paia Drum Tone kit (sound example) probably sound pretty different, since one is 'drum brain' synthesis style and one is 'combo organ drum machine' synthesis style.

the Drum Tone mixes some ringing filters for decaying oscillators and some filtered noise to make a few preset but mod-able drum sounds that you can trigger. it's drum voices are in the old combo organ drum machine/tr66 vein. even, uhm, rather like the 'games without frontiers' drum machine...

the suggested ladik 'twin-t' module, i imagine, is pretty dead on except for noise.

The 5700 Drum, i've only heard some pretty bad recordings of. But, it uses a VCO (NE566 VCO chip) and should produce 80s drum brain/ehx Space Drum/DS-8 type sounds. the 'synth' channels on techstar 204s/306s have a very similar feature set (with the inclusion of a vibrato, sort of useful for effects of the special type, i guess).

interested to see recommendations for what modern single modules replicate these sounds...

Just looked that up and that example is so awesome. It almost sounds like an acoustic percussion. I'm surprised it's a PAiA.

Check out the SSF Entity drum modules, the percussion makes the most sense most likely based on your needs.

The DIY article to build this is in the May and June 1980 issues of Radio Electronics magazine. Which are available as PDF's at www.americanradiohistory.com

I wouldn't call it a beginner's project, but it's not especially hard to make either. Just some weird layout choices in the PCB and overall construction.

The sound is like an SDSV, and the only difficulty will be getting the 566 VCO chip. The needed 3080 is also discontinued, but readily available.

As for something like this, check out the syncussion clones and SDSV clone modules.

There's a recent announcement of an SDS3 clone which will run circles around this and most any other early drum synths.

There were quite a few DS7 and 8 clone modules some years back which may be good enough for your needs.

Another good option which should be easy enough to find are modules based on Thomas Henry's percussion projects. Suggest this as first path taken.

I was able to find a set of these, very cool as I had a Synare as a kid. :party:

Michigan synthworks released the SY0.5 not too long ago (eurorack)
The old MFB drum machines also comes close to this.
Not a module but http://mfberlin.de/musikelektronik/301pro/
