The Drumsette controlling a Polymoog

Awesome new drumset

The Drumssette is the result of a disassembled Tascam four-track recorder that’s been repurposed as an “analog” drum machine. Each of the four tracks has a drum sound which is played on a continuous loop. It has a 16 step sequencer that works by muting each track by default. When a step is triggered, it temporarily unmutes the track allowing the sound to play for that step.

As well, the rate at which the audio loops onto itself determines the clock speed. This is used to time the step sequencer but can also be used to gate an external device, for example the Polymoog shown in the embedded video below. There’s a lot of information available on Mike’s site, so check it out if you’re intrigued.
