Drumulator vs. Drumatix vs. KPR-77

Postby Electroluver » Fri May 28, 2010 4:16 am

After checking em out, I feel an affinity towards the Emu Drumulator.
I like that the Emulator looks like a cash register, sounds like early hip-hop and has (12) 8bit sounds. The TR-606 and KPR-77 kinda make it up by being analog, portable, and better sequencers.

I have all 3 and I definately prefer the 606. The KPR sounds OK, but it's tricky to program. I have not spent much time with my Drumulator, but its low fi PCM sounds do have a certain charm to them. Howard Jones used it extensively on Human's Lib.

I think the 606 is one of the nicest sounding/looking drum machines available...

I've owned all three, 606 is the easiest to program and general sounds the best. The Drumulator comes in 2nd but I find it the more enjoyable of the three to use. The KPR-77, just sample the sounds and never think of it again, nightmare to program.

Yeah, the TR-606 is a great instrument and I like the ability to add and subtract parts on the fly. Still, the TR-606 is limited to something like 7 sounds, whereas the Drumulator has 12 sounds.
I'm able to store something like 66 patches on the Drumulator and program some pretty serious sequences.

Let's take a look -->
