Korg DDM-110 / DDM-220

DDM-110 Super Drums

In 1985 Korg released two very simple and affordable digital drum machines, the DDM-110 (Super Drums) and the DDM-220 (Super Percussion). The sounds are slim pickin's and quite cheesy! It uses 8-bit sampled drum sounds which include kick, snare, hi/low toms, rimshot, handclap, cymbal, open and closed hi-hats. The sounds are anything but inspiring.

DDM-220 Super Percussion

There are 10 buttons, an Accent control for each sound, and tempo controls. It stores 32 patterns and 6 songs. There is no MIDI, only DIN sync for external control. Definitely designed for practicing musicians, the DDM-110/220 has little use in modern day recordings unless you are looking for old, cheesy and lo-fi quality sounds.

I bought one of these when they first came out (1986ish) and then returned it to the shop to replace it with a Roland TR606 - for the life of me I can't remember why now but it might have something to do with the double rate Korg sync and I had a Roland SH09 (still got it!) and a Roland MC202. I've just bought one second hand (don't ya' love ebay!) to relive my youth and the lovely lo-fi punchy sounds I remember from this unit.

The kick and the snare are very crisp and clear which is a must for any pcm drum machine. Editing on the fly is simple, pattern memory with a battery. And Dlate should sell me his
