MFB Kult Drum Machine with Original Box


via this auction

"This thing is called the Kult for a reason... if you own any one drum machine, this should be it! Very low numbers of these were produced, and these don't come up for auction very often on account of being so wickedly amazing, raw, punchy, and flexible.
The MFB-KULT is a TRUE classic!

Sounds of 25 drumcomputers from the Eighties
192 sounds on 4 MIDI channels
Digital signal processor
Programable ATTACK time
Programable RELEASE time
Programable VOLUME
Programable PANORAMA

From MFB: 'On the occasion of MFB's 25th anniversary, we are proud to announce something special. Since 1979 four rhythm machines were developed and produced: MFB-301, MFB-501, MFB-512 and MFB-612. In Germany these devices are very popular, since the inexpensive machines contained interesting rhythms for rock musicians. MFB digitized some of these sounds, and a multiple sounds of other far common rhythm machines. All these samples are packed into the memory of the MFB-KULT. The 192 sounds are divided in 16 sets, whereby each set contains 12 sounds. Since not every each rhythm machine had 12 sounds, a set consists of sounds of up to three rhythm machines. On a keyboard each set has one octave, so that a 4 octave keyboard or each MIDI channel has four sound sets.

Sounds from following drummachines and devices are available:
Boss 55
Casio PT-68
Casio VL-1
CR-78
CR-8000
Drumtracks
Drumulator
El. Harmonix
Hohner
Korg DDD1
Korg-220
KPR-77
Linn 1
MFB-401
MFB-501
MFB-512
MFB-612
Pearl SC-40
Rhythm Ace
Simmons Clap
Simmons SDS
TR-606
TR-727
TR-808
TR-909
Vermona

With each sound the volume and the panorama can be programmed. Beyond that the Attack time and the release time can be programmed for each sound. Since the sounds cannot be longer than the original sample, with longer release the compression is increased. The sounds can be played naturally also individually over the tracer. The sound can be stopped with an automatic controller .
Additionally an integrated Sequencer is available, which can play some rhythms of the MFB-501. The speed is adjustable. The MFB-KULT has an stereo output. Additionally there is the MIDI IN.'"
