Videos of the first mk1 version
The new mk2 version has the same sounds, only difference: slimmer casing, new functional 16-track sequencer and additional x4 trigger outputs to control external devices.
ADS-7 Analog Drum Synthesizer direct mix out through a spring reverb into a soundcard.
No external sequencing, all coming from ADS-7 sequencer. Switching between pre-programmed patterns and tweaking away. Panning also done from the unit itself.
