E-mu E-drum demo

video by Harry Axten

"Couldn't resist pulling the trigger when I found one of these for sale online. It plays back 8-bit samples stored on cartridges, with velocity routed to amplitude and optionally pitch. Mine only came with the 'ROTOTOM1' cartridge, but I was able to scan in and copy the cartridge PCB to produce my own; which in this case have the TR-909 cymbals on them.

It's basically a rebadged Clavia unit, with a different paint job. I think the cartridges are also compatible with the original Clavia DDrum rack system (but not the later 'Sound Pac' ones)."
