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.

The buttons can get dirty and sticky, I clean circuits with light simple green and water, then I use a product like Caig circuit writer on the buttons.. works great

The 0-9 instruments buttons can get somehow damaged. E.g. when I hit the bass drum key I hear 5 or 6 bass drum hits in rapid succession. Is it just a matter of cleaning the buttons? Or what components should one get to replace them?
