Jomox XBASE 09Well, This is purely a spec's page for the Jomox, as I've yet to get the time to check one out.... but if real analog drums is your thing, and you'd prefer a clone, then this could hit the spot when searching for that elusive 909 sound, and more... all with excellent live hands-on control, and excellent midi spec's.
I would say, that probably at the time of release, the price (£ 595 +vat seemed ok, when people wre seeling their mother to grab real 909's......but really, you can get the real thing for that now (well in London anyway) if you shop around a bit... However... If having your mates drolling at your 'real' 909 is NOT a criteria for you, and you don't carry your sandwiches to work in a DJ 12" bag to look cool... then this XBASE could be the mutts nuts for you... reading just the specs would seem to make me veer toward this baby as opposed to an original.
Some readers may also be a bit stunned that they get only 3 sounds for the money... but think about it, most genuine midi'd analog units are around the £ 450 price for a monosynth... and here you get 2 of 'em (the kik and snare) as real analog synths... the hatz are 8 bit samples...# different hatz are selectable, or if you like that slot can be assigned to other samples such as clapz etc.... so... What can I say... not alot... except this unit actually does have a sequencer built in, so it can be used to play live... and the songs are constructed as patterns then strung together.
Almost every control is midi'd, except for the Accent and tempo data controls... and with 8 dedicated control knobs for the kik, and 5 for the snare, sonically this can be pretty much tweaks-heaven !!
You might think that 3 voices is not much, but then either externally or internally along with the note/pattern data, you can record all the controller movements, even for each step of a pattern... So think about that a bit... potentially if you want to, you can have a different edited Kik on every 16th beat of a 4/4 pattern, or sweep the filter or pitch over 1, 2 or haowever many bars... whatever... of course all these movements can be recorded and stored for playback to an external sequencer if you choose... So... Bigtime midi spec's... massively more than the original 909.... and this may sway you to veiw the price differently.... (It'll also do great 808, and of course, all the looney stuff you create yourself)
Oh yeah.. There's also a syc socket to wire up your real 303/909 etc if you choose.
Anyhow, there's the spec's. Click the link to read an indepth reveiw at the distributors website, and er.... Holger ?.... are you there..????.... Any chance of some RA files of this baby in action please ??... C'mon!
