I bought a D-1000 from Cody @ Equinoxoz and it has arrived at my office just now.
I don't know how it sounds as I don't have an amp here, but my office-mate shits me so I might plug it into his arse and see if the sound comes out his shit-eating mouth.

Anyway, now I own a D-1000 I am better than those that don't... so fuck them.

It may not warm condoms but it sure is warming my nutsack nicely as I squat over my desk and lovingly teabag the tubes.

So begins the yellow obsession.

because it emulates old simple machines, and there are so many new complex machines being made. This blows them away though.

This kills a tempest any day of the week. This plus my syncussion would be an AMAZING combo

I'm still not sure that's ironic... it's more factual, except the emulation bit.

Fuck off. It's not for you. Don't make it any more popular. Niche markets for the WIN! So move on.

Eric and his yellow shit is a gateway drug; once you hear the awesomeness and play with the endless simplicity you have to get more... So I bought a Monorocket M9M (the one with the power supply that is the same used in the sun) and also just received my first R-series modules (R54mk2 and R51). Amazing stuff. It just sounds right to/for me.

Now if only Roger at BCM would get back to me about the R-55 I wanted to order... It was all ready to go, but I can't get him to return my email back to him saying "yes, I want, just invoice!".

Man, I've just had a really long session messing with the resonances. Jesus, there is so much in this box. I've never heard anything like it, it's like a rubber band made out of thunder. Take the resonance off completely and it's like a really old organ drum machine, crank it up and it's a drone box. I've got it teetering on the edge of self oscillation at the moment, fucking magic. I can kind of see the logic of having the resonance fixed, you would need to have gain control or some kind of limiter if there were variable resonance pots. I think I have upset the foundations of my house. I need a KV-100 now! :metasonix:

Does anyone build custom wood cases for these?

The drums are the same loop throughout (it goes on a bit) and I'm messing around with the CV and tune as it goes along. I also fed the BD out back into the snare which along with some audio rate modulation of the CV.
i'm a bit late to the party but the those bass drums are killer. love the kind of compatibility with a modular system this instrument has.

It defintely can do the nicest tines and be percussive at the same time:

So get one...or all of them - wouldn't be a mistake either, i suppose. :zombie:

Hey guys this may have an obvious answer to this question but could I use a external drum sequencer to drive this bad boy?

Indeed, this may be obvious - it's got trigger and cv inputs therefore. :hihi:
But mind that the trigger impulses have to be short enough, unless yo want to have doubled beats. The ones of the mfb-02, for example, are and it works very fine. :sb:

You can use a Maths to convert gates to triggers according to Navs:

Or you can use this module:

Is there a way to try a D-1000 out in Tokyo?

Regrettably, no. Even if I strongly thought about it. But you are right, it is not that obvious for I had to try several sequencer till I found the mfb working. It is not easy to get information about triggerlength from manufacturers.
While the mfb does not have the power of a riot, it is very usefull that it has cv outs, too. So you can set the tune of the drums. Therefore you need a bit time to get acustomed to its interface. Then it has quite nice features for programming even more complex sequences...

The Pamela's Workout is fantastic with the trigger ins.

8 clock outs! Thinking about getting a second D1000 to have 8 different tuned drums.

Currently I use the Pam for more traditional beat patterns from my D1000.

That's right - do you feed Pam into the clock input to? While it's fine with triggering the single drums it does not work with the clock input here (I have the newer D-1000, it should work somehow).

I've been using Pam's Workout with stackcables to trigger my D-1000. It's possible to make some pretty complex patterns using syncopation and odd delay timings. I haven't fully explored the capabilities of this method. I believe that Pam's is only capable of sending out a clock signal in the form of an X-bpm trigger? It doesn't actually have a clock out.
