Sound Of: Simmons SDS-V Analog Drum Machine ( Bass / Snare and Tom Tom Modules Only )

Sound Provider

"It's been a long time since I've made a video of a drum machine.
Let's fix that by continuing to explore the material we use in Sound Provider Studio for production or for Sound-Banks by listening to the venerable SDSV Drum Modules built in the early 80's in the UK by Simmons.
For this demo I use Mutable instruments Modules from my Eurorack system to trig the Drum, "Grids" for Kick/Snare and "Grids" with "Branches" for the Toms . Also even if I use few EQ and Few dynamic processor I try to keep the sound quite raw and I didn 't add any other effects like reverb, delay or modulation.
Unfortunatly I didn 't have the Cymbal and HiHat modules ,the drummers used most often their real cymbal and hihat with the modules at the time, so they are rather rare and expensive.It makes the demo with all the modules a little rough without them.
I use a lot my SDS-V for Sound Provider soundbanks expecially for the "Analog Kick, Snare and Tom Now" ( )

0:02 Bass Module (Kick)
1:31 Snare Module
2:50 Tom Module x 1
4:08 Tom Modules x3
6:05 All Modules
8:00 All Modules but more Techno (without all the Effects and heavy Processing)

Note about my version: It have mod someone did for me , it's a module in the front where I can switch directly the patch from my Modular , the Knob can adjust the amount of velocity and the button can trig the sound without any external gear (very useful if you want to trigger and adjust the sound)
