INTRODUCING THE TRAPS E500 ELECTRONIC DRUM KIT
For me, Roland has always been the name that I have associated with Electronic Drums, but there are many other manufacturers out there, all with slightly different ideas. Like keyboards, I just wish that I could take the best bits from each one and combine them into one super kit! However, electronic drums are expensive so most people are forced into making compromises in some areas when making this type of purchase.

BUYING AN ELECTRONIC DRUM KIT
The electronic drum kit that is most suitable for you will depend on what you intend to use it for. For example, do you just want an electronic kit for quiet practice purposes, or are you planning on using it in place of an acoustic kit? Will you be using it for live performance purposes or will it mainly be kept in the studio?

Self explanatory title really! Get your hands on one before someone else does! The Tempest is a unique analogue drum machine, capable of producing twisted percussive synth sounds like nothing else can! It features 16 backlit pads, a number of dials and buttons and two pressure and velocity sensitive control pads. However, the real highlight of the Tempest is most definitely its sounds. Check out the video below for an example (jump to 2:07 to hear them!):

Get in! It’s time to test out another piece of Rob Papen software! Punch now joins up with my other Rob Papen Audio Units to make a team of SubBoomBass, Blue, Albino and of course Punch itself. Pretty tasty, I’m sure you will agree! I now have one piece of Rob Papen software that is perfect for creating those extreme low-rumbles in my songs (SubBoomBass), one piece of software that does… well… pretty much everything else, from bass to leads and pads to effects (Blue), a piece of software that provides a little bit more dirt (Albino) and now, finally, a Rob Papen instrument that is dedicated to drum and groove creation!

It's the news that many of us have been waiting for ever since it was announced at NAMM 2011... the Tempest from Dave Smith Instruments is finally on its way
!Now, the Tempest is described as an analogue drum machine, although in reality it is so much more than this
. In fact, even Dave Smith Instruments admit that describing the Tempest in words is a difficult task. This is probably why they have realised a couple of new videos... beacuse audio and video goes a lot further to describing the Tempest than words ever can!
