Do you use a drums machine?

Postby Quai34 » 17 Sep 2017, 07:55

And if yes, for what? Live...?? With your Stage or Electro? I mean, I was crazy about my first drum box, the Korg KR55 but when I went with my first sequencer, I lost the use/love for it....But with all the new stuff that came around for the past few years, I'm wondering if it's time to get back to it...just let me know your thoughts/use for it.
Sincerely

I play in a band with no drummer - that was one of the initial contraints we set to ourselves. So we are basically two: my mate plays guitar + xx pedals, I play left hand bass lines (Little Phatty ;) ) and right hand harmony/riffs on a Clavia G2 + a couple of pedals, we bothI sing too, and finally we have the best drummer ever: never late at rehearsals, can play as loud as soft for small venues or bedroom rehearsals, tight as can be... but we have to tell him everything he should play :D

That's an Elektron MachineDrum UW. I just love that instrument. It's a digital multi-drumsynth-engine drum machine with it's own sophisticated yet simple, live oriented sequencer, with a limited sample memory. The workflow suits me pefectly. I've been using it as a conventional drummer for 4-5 years now, but before that, I used it for experimental sessions. It allows to sample, process, re-sequence my bandmates -live-. I did that with vocals, violin, guitars, keys, percussions, saxophones... very, very unusual interactions, so much fun!

I can provide links if you want to hear anything.

Hi, Yes I sometimes play a bit of 'jazz' for small venues like Care Homes. It's best when we have a drummer and sax, but sometimes I have just done it with a drum machine app on iPhone. This is really convenient as :

1) I already have the phone with me.
2) No separate power supply
3) Cheap

The app I think is really good is 'FUNKBOX' it's about £5 and has a really easy interface. Also the tempos and mix, drum sound, settings are stored with each rhythm.

I plug the audio into the 'aux in' on the keyboard, and use a stereo jack splitter cable from the headphone out as the main out. This works well for me. Check the App out though very good!
