slight dent and no cables Analog Drum Computer144 Patterns with A/B Variation12 Individual OutputsMetal Chassis with Wooden Side Panels MFB Tanzbar Analog Drum Machine  Details Tanzbar is MFB's next step in the creation of analog drum-computers. Though it's not a clone, it can sound similar to an 808 but with a much more flexible synthesis- and sequencer-section. MFB's Tanzbar drum-computer offers fourteen analogue percussion instruments as well as a synthesizer for bass- and melodic voices. Its integrated step-sequencer allows flashlight-programming and storage of up to 144 patterns. All parameters can be recorded per step! Because of its ability to control and call up all functions on the fly, while the unit is running, Tanzbar is ideally suited for live performances. Pattern Control The MFB Tanzbar Analog Drum Machine can be used to create full drum patterns for songs. Using the fill-function, patterns can be chained for longer sequences. In addition, every pattern offers A/B variations that can be switched manually or automatically for further flexibility. Also, Tanzbar allows saving 16 flam and roll-variations. Easy Creation of Polyrhythmic Structures The step-length is controllable per instrument, allowing easy creation of polyrhythmic structures. Possible resolutions are 32th and 16th steps as well as 16th- and 8th triplet-steps. The shuffle amount can be continuously controlled globally and per instrument. Each instrument offers three accent intensities. Add the bend-function to create glides and LFO-like sweeps for bass drum 1/2, snare drum and toms 2/3. Pre-Listen and Program Patterns In addition to the percussion-instruments, Tanzbar offers addressing external instruments using its two CV/Gate outputs; one being able to control dynamics via a third CV-output. The same tracks are routed to the internal bass- and melody-synthesizer voices. An ideal solution to pre-listen and program patterns without any need for external equipment. Control of External Instruments The CV/Gate-sequencer offers a range of three octaves and is programmable using two methods. All parameters are output via MIDI, allowing control of external instruments. The drum-computer can be synchronized via MIDI- and clock-signals. An additional MIDI-input is available to control further functions, such as microshift (planned for future update). In addition, an editor is planned. Finally, Tanzbar not only offers a master volume knob but individual level controls and mute-functions per instrument. The unit provides a stereo output as well as twelve individual outputs.
