ALM Announces Limited Edition Haswells Taiko


ALM013 'Haswell's Taiko' Teaser from ALM on Vimeo.

"'HASWELL’S TAIKO’ is a special edition Eurorack drum synthesiser module limited to just 100 individually numbered units.

A collaboration between synth maker ALM/Busycircuits and artist Russell Haswell, 'HASWELL's TAIKO' is a re-imagining of ALM’s popular 'DINKYS TAIKO' drum module with both a harsher darker look and sound. Expanding the existing features, this limited edition contains an alternatewavetable sound bank of 30 unique and unusual waveforms hand-drawn by Russell Haswell specifically for this module. The waveforms range from broken classics to the unorthodox and nasty reflecting Russell’s unique sound.

Demo video shows a one take session from Russell using a single Haswell's Taiko with no external processing.

Additional voltage control modulation from a random source. "

The waveforms range from broken classics to the unorthodox and nasty reflecting Russell’s unique sound.

The drum voice consists of 3 parts; a digital noise source with controllable frequency and release time, a wavetable oscillator with start and end frequency settings together with a variable rate (and release time, and finally a mix and tone control for the audio output. All settings, bar the tone control, are both direct and voltage controllable.

The drum voice includes a trigger input as well as accent and choke trigger inputs to add further expressive and rhythmic control.
