JoMoX XBase09 synthesizer
JoMoX XBase 09 Drummachine
the xbase has 3 voices, BD, SD and noise or a sampled 6bit out of 5, in the se_xbase versions it is also 20 like in the airbase, midi and roland DIN sync exept on the airbase or se_xbase versions (sexbase means expanded!), up to 99 steps , chainable , originally 16 steps. airbase has 808 style of sounds plus cd78 (all sampled) the BD and SD are analog and more open because of 8 BD parameters / 5 SD parameters or 4 for sampling also 3 melody tracks available. all can be recorded as controllers ANY step can contain a complete different set of parameters so it may sound like 16 different BDs or SDs .. the airbase adds the tr909 toms but has no sequencer of course.. the unit has 2 LFOs and noise mode..
built 1997 / 3x polyphonic
+ TR sequencer
the drumcomputers and analog sound modules for drumsounds are also very deep and good sounding ones with 16 step (you can have multiple patterns chained up to 96) tr-style sequencer - you can chain some patterns for longer patterns - mine had some problems when you did not start at the first pattern in that chain, but it is better than others.. (exept the korg electribe, yes!!) .. (plus 3 mono-melodies). has 3 voice polyphony but you can program every step, so you can get an impression of having 16 different snares or bassdrums! one of the best features on the xbase 09 (german info/deutsche info zur JOMOX Xbase 09 und airbase 99 hier). the sampled stuff (hihats and some typical stuff) can only played by ONE instrument at the same time! so this is a monophonic "sampler".. dr.walker and some others did a special edition with airbase board inside with some individual samples inside.. well.. you can hear the hihats, but if you want to programm one of the other samples it is possible but not really priority on this machine.. but for the analog sound source: this is the best tr909 replacement one can get right now. airbase (the rack) and xbase audio here more..

sample midi dump allows to import 32 samples per pad plus analogue sound with toms can be set per step and sound like lots of sound, even if you simply put a variation on each step.. 2 filters (analog) for ext. stuff or whats inside. incl sequencer track for automation.
built 2006 / 16x polyphonic

built 1986 / 18x polyphonic
+ real time sequencer
Korgs not so successful Drummachine , DDD1 with card slots), both able to very very short own samples (some KB), and bth with velocity pads (very cool). all sounds come from and going to cards, where most of it are ROM (fixed) samples, only one Card is RAM that you can write to. more..

built 1990 / 32x polyphonic
+ real time sequencer
again a nice but not so successful drummachine with FX processor, 2x midi out! Korg tried to reinvent the drummachine in times of bigger and bigger ROMs in Workstations and even normal synths with sample based sounds had drum kits now, so drummachines had only the sequencer, this little thing had also effects, which was nice, too but it didn't really made it to digital heaven, tho'. layers of sounds can be made so it's really more new style ncl modulations. more..
