A thread with the Bugbrand DRM1 as main actor

Author A thread with the Bugbrand DRM1 as main actor

Here's a thread dedicated to the DRM1.

I often thought I should make a demo of the DRM1, but everytime I start I end up playing with it smile
And it has so many possibilities, that it would go forever to demo it.
Who know, maybe one day I'll give it a new try... But for now, here are a few videos where the DRM1 plays a big role.

Here all sounds are from DRM1 + Xpander being FMed (by QuadSine itself FMed) + PT Delay modulated.

Here again all sounds DRM1, with a little help of the xpander! FMed again (a bit too much delay, but you get an idea):

Here all sounds DRM1 with PT Delay modulated:

Some patches with DRM1 giving its imprint (responsable for beat):

As said in another thread most of my patches with the Bugbrand have the DRM1 playing a role, so I won't add them here, but you get an idea.

The DRM1 is much more than a drum module. The 2 separate channels are very capable. It’s so compact and so powerful.
I know I repeat myself often here, but the DRM1 is really a beast (with an expander even more powerful). In my Top 5 best modules ever (if not the first!). All brands included. For what I do at least.


EDIT:
This one is a bit hors-sujet. So I take it down here. I don't delete cause I like it hihi.
Here with Buchla (DRM1 = beat) - Listened to this patch again while pasting the link here, I have to say, I love the sounds we hear in this video! No matter how long I listened to synths, it's kind of organic, physical! Krass...

RE-EDIT:
I made a playlist with a few of my videos:

Well my contribution is the main page demo sounds - most of these were, I think, made with a DRM1 and a DRM1+X. Not sure what would have been driving the clocks etc, or any accompanying modular - they're all fairly direct & experimental, but there's some good sounds & rhythms within.

https://soundcloud.com/bugbrand/sets/drm1 --- set of 5 tracks - can't embed a playlist..

What may come drum-centrically in the future - I'm not sure yet, but it is in mind. I do like the variety you get from a DRM1 and an expanded DRM1+X - kind of like 3 complimentary synth voices. Perhaps a future full frame in somewhat more modular approach - though maybe that would lose the immediacy of the current DRM1 presentations.

Well, I often feel they work best as a symbiosis with other bug designs - both the driving and the post processing - but then have played a fair bit with other things like LXR and Arturia bits for the driving and various other things for processing.

My small contribution

Two DRM1's + expandes, X-Over filter + expander and PT-Delay

Being triggered by SEQ-1

Cool thread. I would like to get hold of a drm-1 some day.
batchas
Here's another, a short one. It's only the DRM1 with Xpander (delay and reverb).
I hope you can listen loud!

The ergonomy on this module is awesome.
The sounds you posted are so typical. The DRM1 has its own character.

MORE!

Nice minimal groove!

Those are mainly expanded DRM1 with a touch of Ensoniq SQ80. Guinness ftw!

Was just thinking this... the DRM(X) is easily one of my favorite instruments. Extremely deep and immediate at the same time, with an incredible sound. I don't own anything blue, but I think the DRM-X represents some of Tom's best art in a nice 5FW box. (This is to say, even above the very high level of all the other red boxes. PT Delay being another favorite, which has enough character and playability that I consider it like an instrument in itself.)

Regarding the "next generation"... a full frame would be insanely cool, but as you've already considered, Tom - this immediacy or "semi-modular" approach is a strong point of the instrument for me. It's cool to have something that draws on your knowledge of modular patching... I could see a couple "flavors" of DRM 5FW boxes being a really cool thing (including keeping the old one around). The other 6FW could be anything really... clock/sequencing things an obvious choice, more osc types...

Here's 5 mins of a jam from the other night; 1 DRM-X and PT-Delay into Stereo Compress.

Wrote a review a few years back, so here's a track with nothing but the DRM1.

Also, nearly every kick drum on my last three albums has been the DRM1! And here's the thread about mine being converted to Eurorack.

Hey! I'm so glad new posts are coming in!!!
Will listen tomorrow. Thanx to all for sharing Guinness ftw!

Those were super awesome! w00t Guinness ftw!

A favorite module! I have a setup of 2xDRM1 + expanders in my Bugbrand system. Here are some of my old DRM1 demos and tracks, most are from around when it was released:

Thanx for sharing thumbs up

The feedback experiments are very interesting!
