Dave Smith Instruments Releases New OS and Soundset for Tempest Analog Drum Machine Gets Enhanced Feature Set and New Sounds, Beats, Projects

Dave Smith Instruments has released a new operating system for their acclaimed Tempest analog drum machine that adds a number of highly requested features — as well as entirely new internal sounds, beats, and projects. The new version, OS 1.4, ships with newly purchased instruments and is also available for download from the company’s website for users wishing to upgrade instruments with older versions of the OS.

Notable among the new features are:
• Increased sequence length (up to 128 sixteenth notes, or 8 measures of 4/4) • Arpeggiation
• New modal scales
• Free-running LFOs
• Compressor envelope controls
• Quantize disable
• A total of 928 new factory sounds, 64 new beats, and 16 new projects

Co-developed by Dave Smith and noted instrument designer Roger Linn, Tempest has been embraced by musicians from a wide range of genres for both live performance and studio recording. “The new OS adds several powerful new features to an already powerful instrument,” said Smith. “And we’ve enlisted the talents of some heavy-hitting sound and beat designers to come up with a extensive amount of new content that’s not only fresh and inspiring, but also versatile.” The new content takes advantage of the new OS features and was over a year in the making.
As Smith puts it, “Our users have put Tempest to a lot of really creative and expressive uses and this upgrade is going to allow them to take it even further. We can’t wait to hear what they do with it.”

The Tempest has a MAP of $1999.

Price and specifications subject to change.
