wait is this the lost one/"???
or you found another one because
there is a rumour of a lost drm1 somewhere in a
DHL warehouse
That would be my old one, I sent to it a wiggler here and DHL just lost it back in April this year outside Berlin.

Gutted.

RadioMusic seems like a good fit... other than that, maybe Logic / DC Mix / LeSeq / Osc (Sine)
RadioMusic or Le Seq would be my first choices, but they’re tough to find right now! And for good reason (nobody wants to part with them!!)
I have a blue blank in the 1FW spot of the 11FW case I have with the DRM-1/1X / DRM-2.
undecided.
WANT TO BUY:
Bugbrand - CTL-1, Spring Tanker
Bugbrand/Scrotum Lab - Le Seq, Le Seq Expander, Radio Music, Tresses

Diode director all the way
+1 !!

I have one of these next to each of my DRM's and can't live without. Easy to DIY too...

Where could one find info on DIY diode director?

The Diode Director is Tom’s name for his module. Do some searching here on diode OR gates. That should get you started.

Breathes a new dimension into the DRM1/2.

Hogpog of bits sourced from eBay; Roland dual zone pads and brackets and unknown stand for under £60.

So much fun

Awesome :sb:

I see very often on the local sale site here this kind of pads or complete drum sets (mostly roland and alesis), very cheap and always think I should try, but the lacking of space in the studio (and the amount of things I have) hold me back.
So it's cool to see this. Hope to see a video soon.

A video would be fun Robert as I’m no drummer ;)

My new MPC has CV outs so I could probably do some mad finger drumming with my DRMs and Radio Music. Or not. :P I’ll probably stick to sequencing or randomness for now!

You might have thought, given that i) I play drums, ii) have a set of pads, iii) dreamed on the DRMs in part for use with pads... that I'd actually have played with it all at all.

Maybe now is the time Tom? Give it a go. Both versions respond well to the pads.

this is grand idea - I dont have a drm2 yet but I'll be interested to experiment with pads/external drum controllers.

I've experimented with clipping a contact mic on a drumset (bass drum, cymbal, practice pad). It's worth exploring! All of my attempts were quite spontaneous and limited in those situations. (the cymbal was particularly short-lived as the contact mic flew off 60 seconds into the jam :hihi: )

Having multiple DRMs triggered and some kind of sequencing would be so cool. Hope someone can blaze the trail with some demos!

Nothing more really to say about it, other than it’s a shitload of fun :hihi:
It certainly looks like a shitload of fun! Thanks for the demo Tom.

You're welcome.

I’m entirely unsure how I botched that last night. I even watched it three times.

really nice! thanks for the demo vid.
Come to think of it, I would really like to see more drummers with modular! Maybe time to get a kit, David ;) Anyone know of any artists fusing the two?

Thanks for the feedback.

That is a good question about drummers. There are drummers who also use modular, Peter Baumann for example but I don"t know of any who fuse the two. I feel some research coming on.

Not much of a drummer but I do like to play once in awhile.. drums are my favourite instrument to listen to/mess around with.
This definitely seems cool and would be fun to explore! Thanks for the video A100! I never would’ve thought of doing this.

I have a Grilles V2 coming.. acquired a Le Seq with two RadioMusic modules in a separate enclosure and have a DDSR now as well.
Trying to fill that 1FW space in the DRM1/1X DRM2 case.
Deciding between - Logic, Diode Director or Dual Divide..
what do y’all suggest?
WANT TO BUY:
Bugbrand - CTL-1, Spring Tanker
Bugbrand/Scrotum Lab - Le Seq, Le Seq Expander, Radio Music, Tresses

I would opt for Logic if only one space. In conjunction with the DDSR you can do interesting things with your gates.

After a bit of research it appears that a specific Roland drum module is needed for dual zone so I’ll be sticking to pad per voice.
