Virtual drum machine for Kontakt, where sequencer program is being derived from a text string.
Soniocipher, is one completely unnecessary tool, which can convert a text string to machine drum sequence. The practical uses of this device are severely limited, as there is no backward conversion tool. However, it makes noises and it has blinking lights, so it’s quite fun for those, who enjoy such activities.
The machine is quite simple to use, you use virtual keyboard to type in text, then press “enter” to decode it into sound sequence. “Play” button in upper right corner starts sequence playback.
Sonocipher is free to download for Kontakt 4.24 or newer (full version). Download includes samples.

MaxSynths has announced the release of DR-910, a drum machine instrument inspired by one of the most known percussive instruments that massively helped to define the sound of modern electronic music.
The instrument itself does not need presentations: used by artists like Moby, Fatboy Slim, The Prodigy, Jean Michel Jarre, The Chemical Brothers, Faithless and many many others, the TR-909 quickly became one of the most classic pieces of gear in the electronic musician’s arsenal.
DR-910 VSTi is a faithful reproduction of the original device: each sound section (bassdrum, snare drum, etc.) has been developed to sound and act as similar as possible to the original instrument. The plugin includes also some extra features not available in the hardware version: a reverb unit with independent send controls for each sound source, a compressor tailored to work with drum sounds (based on the same engine of MaxSynths DSP-1) and a Lo-Fi FX processor.
- Faithful emulation of the original sound.
- Four stereo outputs.
- Mute and pan options for each instrument.
- Independent send level to the built-in reverb unit for each instrument.
- Built-in compressor featuring IDP cicrcuit.
- Built-in reverb unit routable to output 1-4.
- Lo-Fi FX with three independent modes.
- Full MIDI support through MIDI CC#.
- Behringer BCR-2000 custom template.
- Easy to operate.
- Low CPU usage.
DR-910 for Windows (VST) is available for purchase for 24.99 EUR.
808 The Movie – a documentary about the Roland TR-808 drum machine and its influence on music – makes its world premiere this Friday, March 13th, at SXSW.
The film has been in production for three years, and feature a “Who’s Who” of producers, including: Afrika Bambaataa, The Beastie Boys, Pharrell Williams, Questlove, Phil Collins, Rick Rubin, Diplo, New Order, David Guetta, Damon Albarn and many others.
808 is an inspirational story of the Roland TR808 drum machine and how its ground-shaking beats changed the musical world.
Its sound transcends countries and musical genres, in turn inspiring countless artists and producers, giving them an iconic sound from which to build upon.
Even if you don’t know the 808 by name, you know its sound. It’s everywhere, even now. 808 reveals the stories of the world famous artists, producers and most importantly the hit music to which the 808 was key, offering a cross section of personal experiences about the development of musical genres from around the world.
And 808 reveals why, after only three years of production, the 808 befell an untimely demise.
Today’s show is all about drums!
The Altair8800 now works as a 8 steps drum machine, with 8 voices!
The sense switches are used as channels’ ON/OFF and each one of the 8 steps programmed in the sequence outputs a byte (used as a binary number instead of a MIDI note number) which I’ve used inside max to trigger all the drum kit samples. As usual the interface is programmed in MaxMSP and it communicates with the Altair with a serial to usb connection.
Easy and way funny!!
see you in the next episode, and may the assembly be with you!
This is probably KORG’s best drum machine and though it has a heap of features that most drum machines don’t have, it doesn’t reach the heights or quality of a Roland TR-707 or Yamaha RX5. The claps are dreadful and on-board ram is almost non-existent for anything serious. As you can see from the demo songs, it is still a capable machine with careful programming. I think I like one kick. Nice effects though and almost worth the effort to learn this beast. Has 4 multi outs and 2 MIDI outs and a LOAD of other features. Love it or loathe it! Better than a Yamaha RX7 (nah!) or just piping the Alesis HR16 for build quality.
Background video description:
One of the easiest drum machines to use and my first one I got in about 1988 which was still selling new. Related to the TR-707 but slimmed down to the size of a crappy RX machine. Has better sounds and editing than the RX17 or similar. Love the claps, the kicks, everything about it. Funny enough these can go for crazy prizes, like over $200.
