ABOUT 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.
ABOUT 12bit Drummaschine in der Midi-Zeit, war nicht so sehr erfolgreich, die kleine Schwester DDD5, beide können sehr kurze eigene Samples nutzen.

Die Speicherung wird über Cards an der Rückseite erledigt.
DETAILS midi, 12bit drum sounds, DDD1, DDD5 both with velocity pads and flam and pitch also.

the DDD1 has twice as much pads (14) compared to the (a lot smaller) DDD5 with 7 pads.
DETAILS midi, 12bit drum sounds, DDD1, DDD5 mit Velocity, also dynamischen Pads und "flam" , ausserdem sogar Pitch-Steuerung ,was die Klangpalette größer machte als die frühen Drummachines mit festen Sounds und ohne Tuning.
