Analogue drum machine modded with individual outs/triggers on the rear and rotary tweaking pots on top. Demo videos below.
to quote our usual listing for one of these (un-modded): “This iconic and unique-sounding analogue beat box was famously-used by Jean-Michel Jarre on his Oxygene album.They may seem simple but they just have “that sound” and we have a real soft spot for them and always have one in the studio. Standard preset rhythms can be modified by simultaneously pressing combinations of buttons. The “Quijada” sound is instantly-recognisable and unique to the Mini Pops…”
Well, it was. But where’s the fun in that? We got one of techs to mod this one to give external access to the internal trim pots and also separate outputs so you can use them as triggers. It’s turned a good drum machine in OK condition into a box with all sorts of creative possibilities. See the demos below which only use the tweaking pots. If we have it for long enough we’ll do some trigger demos with it with a Simmons or an Ult Sound drum synth.
Condition is OK with some signs of age – see the photos for more information (but we wouldn’t have let our guy loose on a mint one of these!).
