Looking for a small drum machine to sync to PO-20

edited December 2016 in Pocket Operators
The small drum machine needs to be tiny, open hardware, battery powered, with mini jack output that will sync to the input of a PO-20, and that is *not* another pocket operator

Is there such a thing?

    Maybe.. or get an OP1 if your budget will stretch :)
  • And you don't want a PO-12 because...?

    Korg Volca sample / beats
    Korg Electribe 2 / sampler
    Arturia Drumbrute (not battery powered).
  • Roland TR-09 should also work, using Trigger-Out to PO-20-Input
  • And you don't want a PO-12 because...?

    I want to learn about other types of "devices"


  • Volca beats or sample! The volca series is perfect for beginners and at a a valuable price (under 100$)
  • Btw: Beats if you want a 808-like analogue machine, sample if you want more flexibility (swing, more sounds, eq etc.)
  • Sample more than beats, I got bored of beats quite fast..
  • The sample arrived yesterday. Lovely device. Learned my way around it in a matter of hours.

    Now for a couple of synths ... :)

    Modal CraftSynth, Volca keys, MFB Nanozwerg ,something else?
  • I have the Volca Keys, pleasant analogue sound, but the Volca FM seems much more flexible.
  • Wife bought me a moog werkstatt for less than £160. Gotta be worth a look at that price?
  • Moog Werkstatt looks interesting. I'm learning, and it seems like it would be a good start. What about the Bastl Kastle, seems a good learning tool too?

    I find Roland's Boutique series to be quite immediate and tons of fun.
  • @eesn which would you recommend as a first?

    I've the JU06, JP08, JX03 and VP03. I like them all but the VP03 really won my heart as a little self contained unit, docked in the K25m It depends what you're looking for @steveoath.

  • I hum n haw @cloudburst - i love the chorus on the old rolands, but like to sequence phrases. I probably should stick to daw synths, byt something keeps drawing me to hardware!
  • MFB 522 or the new tanzmaus and tanzbaer lite
