Considering a final DRM1X run

Post by BugBrand » Tue Feb 06, 2018 3:53 am

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.

Gah! I jumped for joy at the title then :ripbanana: 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!

In for 2 expanders.

And yeah... DRM1 is probably one of the last things I would ever sell. Especially expanded :party:

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.

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.

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!

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.

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?

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