RARE GB Rhythm analog drum machine pedal Colorsound...for sale!

A very RARE GB Rhythm drum machine pedal from the 1970's that I think was made by the historic Colorsound company in England. Works 100% with no issues, just tested into my Fender Vibrolux Reverb and it sounds like it did back in the day when I used it with my Guitorgan Condor GSM rig. Sounds sooo friggin cheezy its cool. Every setting 1 to 10 works along with the speed and volume controls. Runs on 2-9volt batteries for 18 volts of DC power.

If Dr Dre, Ez E and Ice Cube had this back in the day with N.W.A instead of the TR808, the drum machine sounds would have been a lot cooler in my opinion.

This is a Roland Rhythm 330 TR 330 Drum machine circa 1973. One of the first few models they made. Pure analogue
This is rare in the UK seems to work fine, internal speaker and output for amplification and footswitch socket.

A little crackle in the knob when you turn it on but sounds great if you like those vintage sounds. minor chip in the wood veneer but overall a nice presentable example.
Apparently these are suitable for circuit bending if you are into that.
A nice original example you will not see many of these on Ebay UK

Happy Bidding!

BOSS Dr. Rhythm DR550...for sale!

SELLER DETAILS INFO:
Boss Dr. Rhythm DR-550 Drum Machine s/n DB71509
Drum machine with rock solid onboard pattern based sequencer
Produces more of a 'human' type drum sound so would be ideal for recording guitarists

Stereo or Mono output with Midi input so can be controlled from an external midi controller or sequencer
Item is unboxed and without instructions, cosmetically in grade C/D condition, fair amount of wear to the finish and the battery cover is a replacement hence is a slightly different colour; I noticed while testing that some of the pads/buttons are not as responsive as they should be- all of the buttons do work, just some require a firmer press than others. Aside from this the item is in good working order.
(I grade the condition of my items thus : A=Mint or near; B= Light wear; C= Moderate Wear; D= Road Worn)

Please note this listing is for the unit only, you will need either a Boss PSA power adaptor or it can be run off 6x AA batteries (not included)
World shipping available; please contact me for a price if your country is not listed.

FARFISA Partner 15 Vintage....for sale!

Seller Info:
Farfisa Partner 15 Vintage Drum Machine
This drum machine has recently been isolated from a Farfisa 252RS organ. It provides a selection of warm, retro drum patterns of the bossa nova variety that frankly sound awesome! A number of dials give you control of tempo, volume, etc.
As you can tell from the picture there a number of wires emanate from the rear, this is where I have separated it from the organ. I expect the winning bidder of this machine will know what to do with them.

ACE TONE Rhythm Ace...for sale!

Seller Info:
Ace Tone FR-1 Rhythm Ace Drum Machine
All in working order
Very warm and lush analogue drum sounds
Rhythms can be edited and altered
Rhythms can be layered simultaneously
A real piece of drum machine history!
Hard to find these for sale in the U.K
I need space so I am selling it now

Dimensions :
Hight 22cm
Length 54cm
Depth 19cm

It is quite large, and quite an antique so I am reluctant to post this item so
contact me if you cant collect in person .
P.S the leather handle is now showing signs of wear and will need replacing.
It has worn through to the metal reinforcing strap .
Here is some info sourced from the web :
The Ace Tone Rhythm Ace FR-1 has a secured place in drum machine history
as the first transistorised machine to appear on the market in 1967.
The Rhythm Ace was the brainchild of Ikutaro Kakehashi,
(founder of Ace Tone and later, Roland in 1972).
With this in mind, it is fairly safe to draw the conclusion that the FR-1
was effectively the first of the Roland TR (Transistorised Rhythm)
series of drum machines.

The FR-1 effectively revolutionised the industry because prior to this,
what few drum machines there were, ran on valves and before that,
via a mechanical disc system.
Transistors must have been the "new thing" back then because
the components are even listed in the specifications...
Transistors x 38 and diodes x 107!!!

ACETONE BENTLEY RHYTHM ACE Vintage 70s...for sale!

Acetone BENTLEY RHYTHM ACE Vintage 70s Drum Machine.

Here is a fantastic vintage drum machine from Acetone - who later became Roland, this is the Bentley Rhythm Ace (yes the band was named after these!) and dates I believe from the 70s. Its a classy looking machine in a real wooden cabinet with a wooden music stand which locks in the upright position, or can fold flat.

It has buttons to select rhythms such as Rock n' Roll, Swing, Ballad, Waltz, March, etc., and a large selection of Latin rhythms, etc. The sounds are cheesy but very useable. There are sliders to control volume and tempo, and you can balance the volume of separate instruments such as bass drum, cymbals, snare, guiro & claves, or remove the instrument from the mix completely. Think Jean Michel Jarre Oxygene to get an idea of what this can do, also more modern retro music like Air. Fully analogue it has a lovely warm vintage sound.

I've cleaned and polished the cabinet, and cleaned the jack sockets and slider controls. Everything seems to be working perfectly. You can silence the output (while keeping the pattern running), or start and stop the rhythm instantly with a neat 'touch' plate on the front. There is also a start/stop socket on the back for a footswitch, but I haven't tested this.

ROLAND MC 505 Groovebox...for sale!

Roland MC 505 nurtured like a baby till it was 'tidied away' under the bed sustaining an injury to the volume knob :-(((
Good screen and rest of it working well
Needs repair - - loose volume know and I have had a look inside and it seems some solder has come off - problem is it's in a diffiult to reach place being between 2 of the circuit booards - so awkward - well beyond my skills so have to move it on - it still has mono output though this has been a bit temperamental today. I'm guessing it is an easy repair for someone who knows electronics or an electrician
If I had bought it in this condition I would have been happy to work around the limitations as I do with some of my other gear but having to go down a step in functionality doesn't work for me

KORG DS10 drum patches!


A short video about the drum patches within the very fine Korg DS10 on the even finer Nintendo ds machine!....here's some info from the original youtube post'dude! http://www.youtube.com/user/ChrisLody I've been sat with ds-10 for a few nights now learning a few things about drum synthesis. I knew a little theory, but mostly I have just let my ear guide me. After a million indescicive tweaks I came up with a drum kit I think is good enough to share with the world. There is 5 drums in total. A kick, snare, closed hi-hat and open hi-hat in the drum section, then also a distorted tom loaded into pattern 6's syn2.

I recorded the sound separately so I could show you the parameters while you listen to a few loops I made with them. I couldn't resist putting a bit of a bass line over it too, just for fun : )

p.s. I'll add some annotations when the damn thing'll let me! I'm guessing it'll work with ds-10 plus also but I've no way to test it.

EKO ComputeRhythm from 1972!


This is a pretty rare drum machine manufactured by EKO in 1972 in Recanati, Italy. Model ComputeRhythm, maybe one of 15-20 ever made (curiously SN #0113).
This particular one is owned by a musician living in Spain, and It was repaired and slightly modified by me on the past months (www.synthoma.net).
Before giving back to its owner I have the chance to made these demonstration videos to show its features and incredible programing methods.
Due to the price it was mainly used by famous electronic musicians like Jean-Michel Jarre and Manuel Göttsching (founder member of Ashra Tempel). J-M Jarre has used it extensively on his first albums: "Oxygene" and "Equinoxe".
It can be seen on his Equinoxe 5 videoclip from 1978 (at 0:36):
http://www.youtube.com

Please, enjoy this first demo, and sorry about the poor quality video. It was made by a webcam. However, the audio was taken directly from the mixer.
If there are any interest in to get samples of this machine (free, of course :) please, contact me at synthoma@synthoma.net or via YouTube message.

JOMOX AirBase 99....for sale!

Jomox AirBase 99
The AirBase 99 is based on the XBase 09, but is much better. It has many of the same great TR-909 sounds and much more but comes in a 1-unit rack-mount MIDI module rather than a table-top drum sequencer like the latter. Its front panel is extremely bare, with just 2 knobs and a few buttons and LEDs. The AirBase is designed for use as a Drum Tone Module with your sequencer. Programming is easiest through MIDI control of the parameters.

The AirBase features the same sounds and parameters as the XBase 09 and adds increased polyphony (9 voices) and Tom Toms. The AirBase emulates 808, 909 and CR-78 style sounds with excellent quality. Kick, Snare and Toms are analog and feature various tune and envelope controls. Hats, cymbals, clap and rimshot are samples but can still be tuned and reversed! For emulated 808 and 909 drum machine sounds, the Airbase 99 is great! It costs half as much as getting all of the real drum machines.

The AirBase 99's cool features include both high and low pass resonant filters and a band pass filter to apply to the hi-hats! There's more parameters to edit per each Drum Tone than the Drum Station or any of the original beat-boxes and there is almost 38 times more patch memory in the Airbase with 1,024 user and 500 preset drum kit settings! Two global LFOs can modulate the pitch of any sounds and sync to MIDI. Of course there are individual outputs for each drum sound as well as a stereo out.

KORG KR55 vintage 1979 Complete...for sale!

Vintage Korg KR-55 Drum Machine 1979
Much sought after, rare & highly collectable original model
Well used but well loved. Fully working despite some wear.
Any other KR55's command huge prices on eBay, no reserve on this item
This one is complete with the bag and foot-switch, something I've not seen
on any other auction. It's also in the UK, so no massive shipping costs.
The bag has a zip at the back so when arriving at a gig or studio, you lay the machine flat,
flip back the front section, fit your connections through the zip slot and you're ready to go.
Pretty neat.
This piece of kit was central to the set-ups of Jean-Michel Jarre & Depeche Mode.
They still cause quite a lot of excitement on blogs and enthusiast's sites mainly because
of it's great sounds and easy means of changing settings.
This machine is not only collectable but a very realistic and relevant tool for use today.

MFB Schlagzwerg Semi Modular...for sale!

Up for auction is my MFB Schlagzwerg Semi-Modular analogue drum machine. I bought the Schlagzwerg only a couple of months ago brand new from Thomann. The drum machine has only had around 4 hours use and is in brand new / mint condition and comes boxed with manual, power supply and additional patch cables.

The MFB Schlagzwerg is capable of creating some of the largest analogue drum sounds I have heard and stands up well against classics such as the Roland Tr-808 and Tr-909 drum machines;

Here is a little info:
MFB SCHLAGZWERG combines the power of analogue drum and percussion sounds with modular versatility in a convenient and compact desktop unit. SCHLAGZWERG fusions CV-controllable percussion modules and a six-track CV/Gate-sequencer into a unique drum-machine for live and studio applications.

Thanks to its semi-modular concept, SCHLAGZWERG is ready to go without any need for patch-connections. Its internal pre-wiring comprises trigger-assignments for the gate-tracks of five (of six) drum-sounds as well as hihat decay-control. The additional CV-tracks can freely be patched to any of the modules’ functions. Naturally, the available CV-inputs can also be addressed by external control sources like LFOs, envelope generators or a Theremin-controller.

Schlagzwerg features
True analogue sound sources.
Kick, snare and tom (DRUM-04/-05/-06).
Cymbal and hihat (DRUM-07).
Step-sequencer with 16 steps and 16 A/B-patterns.
6 gate- and 6 CV-tracks.
Separate CV/Gate-tracks, e.g. for use with Kraftzwerg.
Integrated MIDI/CV-interface.
Integrated stereo-mixer with panning.

ROLAND SP808...for sale!

RARE VINTAGE DRUM MACHINE.. ONLY bein sold due to moving studios.. one previous owner and took me a LONG time to get hold of this item

full brochure included... U CANNOT BUY THIS NOMORE... DONT MISS OUT
this item was $1400when it was first released...
it is from the same serious of the tr-808 one of the greatest of all time.. and still selling for £2000

The SP-808 GrooveSampler was originally released in 1998 as an all-in-one phrase-sampling music workstation. It was released as part of Roland's Groove Gear. The updated SP-808EX (pictured) adds a cool new translucent design, many enhancements, and is now dubbed the e-Mix Studio. Essentially the SP-808 is a phrase sampler with a pattern sequencer, hard-disk digital multitrack recorder, high quality studio-effects, and more! Both machines are geared towards sampling musicians, remixers, broadcasters and DJ's.

The original SP-808 (GrooveSampler) can play up to four stereo samples simultaneously. If that seems a little thin, you can always bounce the samples down with any mixing, editing and effects you may have applied, opening up those tracks for more samples. It samples at 44.1 and 32 kHz sampling-rates, with a maximum sample time of 25 minutes of stereo 44.1 kHz sampling! Sample via analog or digital inputs, the SP-808 holds over 1,000 samples! Its sampler has a full set of editing features and some nifty tricks to make sampling very easy! BPMs of loops can easily be adjusted to match song tempo. All samples are stored/read directly from the 100 MB Zip Drive rather than internal RAM memory. AIFF and WAV audio formats are not supported as Roland is using their own proprietary sample storage method to maximize sample space on ZIP disks.

Studio quality effects include a filter, reverb, delay, pitch shifting, distortion, phaser, compression, Karaoke mode, and many more effects. There's also a D-Beam controller to tweak pitch and volume - Theremin style. Effects are realtime tweakable, but only one effect can be used at a time, so it pays to resample your sounds with effects processing to use more effects.

Recording is also pretty easy. Once you've filled the unit up with all your samples, they are available via the pads labelled 1 - 16. Like the VS-880, arm any of the four tracks you want to record to. Hit Record and trigger samples from the sample pads, add effects, adjust levels and do some panning. Songs can be recorded in real time or step time. The multi-track section has some nifty features of its own to make it quick and easy to use.

The SP-808EX (e-Mix Studio) has a virtual monophonic synthesizer for use with the step-sequencer and D-Beams. It also has new vocal and guitar multi-effects, a 10-band vocoder, Voice Transformer and Mic Simulator, plus dozens of DJ-oriented groove effects. A larger 250MB Zip drive replaces the original 100MB Zip for expanded sampling/multi-track recording time, up to 61 stereo minutes, compressed. Expansion options include the OP-1 interface (6 analog outs, 2 digital I/Os, SCSI) or OP-2 interface (XLR I/Os, digital I/O, SCSI). For use live or in the studio, the SP-808 offers a complete music production package!

ROLAND TR909...vintage!....for sale!

Welcome to the auction for a Roland TR-909 drum machine looking for a new home. I need to downsize, so this is a reluctant sale.

This machine has been in use in my home studio for about 5 years so I can confirm that everything works. As you would expect for a machine of it's age it has a few marks and scuffs here and there. These are mainly on the plastic end panels, but it's pretty clean overall.
A few of the volume pots are a bit worn at certain positions through use, e.g. on the hi-hats. But this easily worked around by setting the volume slightly above or below that point. Unless you want to live mix by turning those knobs, it's not an issue. The machine is built like a tank!
You can use it either as a sound module (trigger each sound from a midi keyboard) or use the onboard sequencer to make patterns and tracks. You can also midi sync it to a midi sequencer, like cubase, using the DIN socket. The internal sequencer clock is absolutely rock solid. It comes with a power lead and midi leads. You can download the manual from here: http://media.rolandus.com/manuals/TR-909_OM

ROLAND TR707 classic....for sale!

Roland TR-707 Drum Machine. I had this imported this from Japan about three years ago and it's been worth every penny! Rock-solid timing and the perfect studio clock master for MIDI & DIN SYNC 24. It's in excellent condition and has absolutely no operational issues. No crackling pots, no unresponsive buttons and all faders fine. Sounds fantastic. Cosmetically, it has a two chips in the casing (from the previous owner), but this is to be expected from a 25 year-old classic. It comes with a power supply, though not the original. ***M-64C Cartridge is for sale via another auction, Postage price includes registered delivery. UK AUCTION ONLY.
