Processing Drum Machines with a 70s Boss KM-60 Mixer

Published on Sep 27, 2019 Alex Ball

"A little spin through a Boss KM-60 from 1979. Like many pieces from this era, people have subsequently found uses for them that weren’t what they were originally intended for.

In the case of the KM-60, it’s since found a second life as a device for processing and mangling drums, which I’m demonstrating here.

I particularly liked what it did to a TR-707 with a TB-303 in tow.

Apologies for the voice sound quality in places, I was experimenting with a lapel mic for the first time and inadvertently had a setting on it that added an extreme (and horrible) digital compressor/limiter. I couldn’t be bothered to re-record the entire thing all over again, so it is what it is. Sorry.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the demo and thanks for watching."
