Grendel: Drone Commander Vs Grenadier

Author Grendel: Drone Commander Vs Grenadier
LHOOQtius
For Death Industrial / Death Ambient type stuff...

Is the Grenadier viable? What I've heard of it so far seems to focus on its Acid abilities. But I've got an XOX Bassline so I don't care about that.

Does the drone button plus its 3/4 of the Grendel formant filter really make it at all comparable to a Drone Commander + Formant?

Anyone got links to that kind of drone material played on a Grenadier?

Thanks!

First off, can't answer this - so apologies. However, I have the eurorack Drone Commander + Expander and would be happy to run any tests or answer questions about that setup to the best of my ability if you are curious.

While the grenadier can do drones, for your style the drone commander and especially the GDC2 + expander are much more versatile.

Here is an acid free video I did with the grenadier:

And here is some drone commander action with a Metasonix tube drum machine:

Does anyone have any recommendations on a drum machine that would pair well with either of these? More specifically the Grenadier. I would like to get something that has a vacuum tube sound. Almost like a Panasonic vibe. But I am interested in anything really that is not costly.

Teenage Engineering PO-12 syncs nicely with the Grenadier clock out!
Best,

check the new soma pulsar23. not out yet but the prototype sounds great: https://somasynths.com/pulsar-23/
and, owning a lyra8, i'm sure the pulsar will be a great built.

The pulsar23 looks interesting and sounds really incredible, but likely out of my price range and skill level. I will be checking out the po-12 just for kicks.
My next purchases were going to be the Volca Kick or Bastl Micro-granny which I think I could figure out to some degree. The Lyra8 looks like a really nice drone box.

skills develop under circumstances. once it is in front of you i'm sure you will at some point get to grips with it. after all it is analog with one function per knob. i don't think you need to worry about all those patchpoint in the beginning ...
and as time/experience goes by, you can get deeper into it. unlike most drummachines where you get stuck fairly easily.
booyaldy
Hopefully I can get a Trogotronic device until I can afford something more in depth like the Pulsar. I'd just like to know how much it will cost.

the soma drummachine is projected at 1200 euro. maybe less if they can do it. but you can only be sure after the first produktion-run. for that sort of money you could get a folktek matter (or two) plus a beatstep pro.
"ah, the agony of choice".
my guess is you would want both. the soma for the heavier sounds and the folktek for more 'kraftwerk bleepiness' hihi cool
