Keytek MDP 40 Midi Digital Drum Machine

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

This one was spotted and sent in by swissdoc.

You can find an overview video of the RMP 40 branded version posted here.

via this listing

"This is a very desirable VINTAGE, FULLY FUNCTIONAL classic drum machine from the 1980's (released in 1986), the SIEL MDP-40...also known under other brands as the SUZUKI RPM-40 and the KEYTEK MDR-40. It was made in Italy, and features 10 pads for 13 PCM sounds, 3 of which are accessible by external MIDI only. This machine comes with original power supply and owners manual. The unit itself is a desktop model, has LED display, is lightweight (only 1 kg), will also operate on 6 x AA batteries, and has 3 MIDI ports. Audio output is via 1/4" phone jack, mono out. I hate to let this go, but I haven't taken the time to experiment with it in recent years as I had hoped to do, so I'm passing it on. I envision it to be very useful in live performance situations as a trigger machine MIDI'd to a more modern drum machine with tight, up-to-date drum/percussion sounds."

P.S. Moby owned one.

The OmniChord Is Back! NAMM 2024

video upload by Reverb

"Despite being delayed just past the company's 70th anniversary (which was celebrated in 2023), the new Omnichord OM-108 has made its official debut on the NAMM floor as promised after months of teasing. And folks, it's every bit as glorious as we had hoped it would be. See more about NAMM 2024 on Reverb"

NAMM 2024 - Suzuki - Omnichord OM-108

video upload by sonicstate

"At NAMM 2024 we met up with Yu Horiuchi from Suzuki who introduced us to the new re-issue of the Suzuki Omnichord. Originally produced in 1984, the OM-108 has been improved with new features, like on board strummable and syncable drum pads, of which Yu gave us a splendid demonstration.

The Omnichord can transmit midi through its 5 pin din port, and it looks like it will be an excellent way to get some expressive strumming into our lives.

Suzuki Omnichord Available: July 2024 Price: 800 USD"

TheHappyWombat's Omnichord inspired MIDI Controller

video upload by TheHappyWombat

"A capacitive touch-based MIDI controller inspired by the omnichord, with a slightly different control layout. The 12 keys select the root note, and the 10 buttons on the side select chord quality, up to 9th chords. The buttons latch, so you don't have to hold your hand on the keys the entire time, and you don't need to press them simultaneously either.

The sound I'm running here is the Box Harp from the Decent Sampler plugin ("

Suzuki TO-37R

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

via this auction

"Vintage Suzuki TO-37R POLYPHONIC electric keyboard and drum machine. Three basic keyboard sounds which can be pressed simultaneously for interesting tones. For example- strings and flute combo produces a gnarly overdrive sawtooth. The built in analog drum machine is capable of the same multi patching. Two can be press in creating really interesting and playable rhythms. This keyboard shines in front of a delay and reverb!


The volume pods are a little scratchy which is expected for a 50 year old synth. The rear output jack is inoperable. It could probably be fixed simply but that’s beyond my scope. I always used the headphone jack as an output which works equally well. The built in speaker is really nice but I wouldn’t push it too hard."

Suzuki Omnichord to Make a Comeback in the Fall

via Suzuki

"The Omnichord will be re-produced to commemorate the 70th anniversary of our company.

In the 1980s, the electronic musical instrument 'Omnichord' gained tremendous popularity among gadget-loving music lovers for its quirky look and tone. We have been receiving requests to resurrect the Omnichord for a long time. And this year, 2023, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the founding of Suzuki Musical Instruments Manufacturing, we will reproduce the Omnichord! It is scheduled to be released around the fall of 2023. We will update the information on this page from time to time. *The photo is the old model OM-27.

It was developed as an electronic musical instrument with an automatic accompaniment function (auto bass chord) equipped with a harp sensor. Anyone can easily play chords, including those who are new to musical instruments and those who are less adept with traditional instruments. It is played using multiple chord buttons lined up in the centre and a touch sensitive strum plate on the right. Whilst pressing the chord buttons, tap the plate with your finger or slide up and down to play 4 octave sounds to effectively accompany a song. Not only is it easy to play, but its unique appearance and tone makes it a hidden favorite both in Japan and overseas for artists who want to try something different and for non-musicians who want to play music!

Originally development started with a request from an overseas sales company to make an electronic musical instrument like an auto-harp. It started with the electronic musical instrument 'PC-27' and the first Omnichord 'OM-27' was born with improvements to the interface and functions. Since then, as technology has advanced, we have created numerous models through trial and error in adding more chords, timbres, and designs."

"Scheduled to be released in the fall of 2023!"

Peak Lo-Fi With A 1930s Dictaphone

"Join me as I explore the 1930's German Kosmograph, a very early dictaphone that recorded acoustically to celluloid discs. Is this still LO-fi or is it NO-fi? Will it music?"

Suzuki Omnichord from 1989

video upload by Bata

Almost thought he was going to cover A-ha's Take on Me at the beginning.

"Messing around with an OM-100 Suzuki Omnichord, also called the System 100. It can do 84 different chords with 10 rhythms/accompaniment patterns and 10 different sounds for the strum plate. I really messed up the ending here forgetting that you can't play the strum plate solo without lowering the other part's volume. Special thanks to Justin for donating this instrument to my studio back when I was in high school! Apologies for the out of sync and sideways video. I will consider reuploading this or doing a better video."

The Dust Collector + Omnichord 84

video upload by Robin Rimbaud-Scanner

"Filmed on my iPhone, just a little bit of playful fun in the studio using the Omnichord 84 through The Dust Collector, which offers a gritty analogue edge to the already low fidelity music, by way of LFOs, tape saturation, a spring reverb, a delay and a phaser. Nothing spectacular, just a moment in the studio, nothing more, nothing less.

Apologies for the camera re-focusing but this isn't for broadcast, just documentation of a moment in time."
