Lung-Gom-Pa

An uptempo track, mainly improvised... I decided to try out the Akai Rhythmwolf, the allegedly worst drum machine ever! It has got so much bad press, so I just couldn´t resist buying it, when I came across a very cheap one. And as some others have noted too, it´s not too bad, just very limited. It makes a few things rather nicely and here´s my first try. The other gear is Moog Slim Phatty and Voyager, the pads are Roland Juno 60 and JD800, plus some mellotron samples. A plain and simple track, might re-do it one day...

Certainly works in this (very effective) context.

I'm kind of intrigued by this concept of a worst drum machine ever and that it was that quality that made you buy it. Well, it sounds good here I would say.  Some really nice synth sounds as well.

I love that you bought the drum machine based on its terrible reputation! Such a colourful palette of sounds in this.

Haha! Thanks smile  I have a few synths etc. that have been universally damned... I probably get some strange satisfaction from wrangling something useful out of them...

Thanks! It´s almost all analog synths, except the fairlight type patch from a Roland JD800... they seem to go together very effortlessly.
