SoundMaster ST-305, Roland Jupiter 4 & Echolette SE251


video upload by ohm_studi_ohm

"Quick impro to demo the Sound Master Stix Programma ST-305 (!) analog drum machine syncing the Roland Jupiter 4 arpeggiator. The Echolette SE251 provides echo/reverb.
The ST-305 is an 80s programmable analog drum machine. Very basic, no sound editing but you get 7 sounds, an accent track, dedicated volume faders and outputs for every instrument.
And the icing on the cake is it can be synced to external gear and/or sync other gear, which is a nice feature (you can use it slaved to a sequencer and in the same time slaving a synth, so it acts as a 'through').
I did not know this one till recently and it was a pleasant surprise."



Klemt Echolette SE-251 tape delay.

Pics of the inside below.

"This is quite a rare tape echo manufactured by Dynacord. It seems to be one of the very last tape echo introduced by the brand (with the Echolette Echo 400).
It shares many parts with the Echocord line of delays like motor, pinch roller, heads, oscillator board etc
But this one used op amps instead of only transistors for amp stages (the Echocord Super 76 also already used one op amp for the output stage).

The unit has 2 heads which you can mix with the dedicated pot. Otherwise classic features like input volume, tone, echo send level, echo feedback and echo level.
In the back the original DIN socket enabled output and aux input. In this case you only get the wet signal out of the delay, which is nice in a studio environment.

Unit was fully serviced and modded:
- all electrolityc caps were replaced (except 3 bipolar ones )
- original 4x op amps were upgraded to better one (TL081)
- original DIN socket was replaced by 2 jack sockets, one for the output and one for the aux input. Also a pot was added to attenuate the level for the aux input
- unit was meticulously cleaned
- heads were cleaned, demagnetized and aligned
- unit was calibrated
- tape is new

The unit is in perfect working order and in excellent cosmetic condition."

3. honky tonk music klone kit
sound demo of the quirky klone kit control module. made in the uk 1983 it was a cheap 5 voice alternative to other popular but expensive e-drum solutions of that time. all channels are identical except the snare channel which offers noise. the sound is very limited - followed up by the more flexible klone kit 2. since there's no demo of version 1 I decided to shoot a quick video with proper audio. retail was 299 ukp.

11. lel psr and radel electronic tabla
#onedrumcomputeraday is having a look at the worst digital drum machine ever (?) the russian lel psr in a double feature with the odd indian radel electronic tabla - also featured in a little deconstruction of the arctic sunrise song "forever yours".

Repair of the Soundmaster STIX ST-305 analogue drum machine


Published on Feb 6, 2020 Mindburner
Re-Published on Feb 5, 2020 Mindburner

"This little analogue drum machine was realised by the Italian company Soundmaster in the early 80's

This example was purchased on eBay for around £25 in dodgy condition and operation unknown.

Bodges galore and lack of a service schematic make repairing this machine a bit of a nightmare.

I think the bodges are factory fitted as they use the same kind of enameled resistor as the main PCB.

Part 1 of a 2 part series

sorry about my plosive popping on the commentary.

Also the TA5558 in not a timer, rather a dual op amp

music: Crystalline Stricture, Harbour, No Time, Secret Remix"

Sound Master Rhythm 1

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this auction

"vintage analog stompbox preset style drum machine

Manufacture date: +-1980
Manufacture country: Japan
Type: Analog
Rhythms: 8 presets
Drum voices: 5 (bass drum, snare drum, claves, hihat, cymbal)

Early 80's rhythm box made by Japanese Sound Master. Battery powered.
Preset style drum box for collectors - near mint condition (in my opinion it's mint, looks like unused, but there are some very small flaws on the painting, probably from production, not by using).
This little showpiece comes with original box and new 9V alkaline battery.

There are three trimmers in this cute box - to set the claves sound's lenght (up to self-oscillation), sound balance (more or less snare and highs) and for tuning tempo."

Sunsine Audio SoundMaster Stix305 Nanostudio & Beatmaker 2 Sample Pack



"Simple acid demo of the Soundmaster Stix305 drumsample kit by WaveShaper."


"Sunsine Audio is proud to announce we will begin releasing Beatmaker 2 and Nanostudio versions of Waveshaper drum kits and samples.

The iOS versions will be available exclusively through Sunsine Audio, while the original Wav versions will remain available from Waveshaper. Both versions are priced exactly the same.

The first "converted" release is - STIX 305

The SoundMaster Stix 305 is a very rare analogue drum machine from the early eighties. You get both the cheesy, mellow sound of the psychedelic 70s, plus the acid hats of the 80s !

This WaveShaper sample pack is a quite unique occasion to meet this very little known and lovely beat box. Your tracks will get a great retro sound, whether you are an electronic funk producer, and acid freak or a true analogue sound lover.

The Stix305 was recorded using some tube preamp and compressor and a vintage eq on top of it to keep the analogue vibe on the full recording chain.

As the Stix305 features few sounds, I recorded them at various compression, gain and eq settings and made several takes of each sound in order to get some subtle variations that your round-robin soft sampler will love for sure !

There are also a dozen of loops plus a more punchy kit, processed using some strong tube distortion.

Converted and exclusively available for iOS use (Nanostudio and Beatmaker 2) from Sunsine Audio. Please visit http://waveshaper.12r.org/ for original Wav file versions. This product is not included in the Sunsine subscription deal.

Format:

*Requires Beatmaker 2 or Nanostudio*

43 One Hit Samples
3 Kits (Clean, Alt, Distorted)
3 .bmkz files for Beatmaker 2
3 .trg files for Nanostudio
13 Bonus loops in .wav format
Easy Installation Instructions

Price: $2.90

Available from - www.sunsineaudio.com"
