Kick it - 11 Bass Drums for eurorack


video by SchneidersLaden

"Here it is: The big bass drum module comparison - this one goes to eleven. In just under 20 minutes we play 11 bass drum modules, all with the same sequence, no frills. This is just about listening to all modules in the same setup to be able to compare them. Just what people do when they come to SchneidersLaden showroom to compare modules.

Deciding on a new module is often a lengthy process of weighing pros and cons, gathering opinions, and watching videos. There are product descriptions and feature lists, but ultimately it comes down to sound - does the sound of the module fit the aesthetic I want?

We put all the bass drum modules from our showroom into a rack - 102hp - to pit them against each other: Tiptop Audio – BD909 & BD808, Hexinverter – Mutant BD09 & Mutant Bassdrum, WMD – Crater, Noise Engineering – Basimilus Iteritas Alter, Erica Synths – Bass Drum, Jomox – ModBase 09 Mk II, 2hp – Kick, L.E.P. – Cassa, Befaco – Kickall.

They all have their own character, very different concepts and features. We are not interested in whether one module has three CV inputs more than another, but only in the basic sound - some of the presented modules are quite capable to function as a stand-alone synthesizer voice, but that's not what we want to talk about here. We hope the video can help you in your search for your next kick. At the beginning of the video there is a timeline to help you find your favorites."
