Simmons SDS 5 / SDSV DIY clone demo

Published on Aug 2, 2016 der oberling

"I have finished building yet another clone project.
It's a clone of the Simmons SDS-V

This time it's a little more DIY because I designed my own 19" rack mountable Frontpanel for the 6 modules and added a selfmade MIDI-Trigger converter that takes MIDI messages (in this Demo they came from Ableton live) and triggers the voices accordingly (sourcecode and schematics:
The MIDI-Trigger converter also includes 16 flame variations that are selected by the velocity of the note.

Recording completely dry from the modules into the sound card. No additional processing. Prepare your speakers/ears for some nasty self oscillations here and there ;-)

Voice PCBs and more Project info:
This Clone itself already includes several more editable parameters than the original and I added the only roughly described LFO-Speed mod as well as the TB1/TB2 switch (Tom/Bass) for even more knobbing fun."
