The Delptronics LDB1e Analog Drum Eurorack Module

Delptronics released a new video demonstrating the first of two Drum Machines they are planning to release under the "Little Drummer Boy" moniker. The LDB-1e “Little Drummer Boy”  Module is a Eurorack counterpart to the planned LDB Stand alne drum machine.  The 8-Voice Module has, you guessed it,  8 analog drums in 4HP wide euro module and is capable of 8-voice polyphony.

From Delptronics' site:

"The module uses totally analog circuitry, not samples. Our goal was to recreate the warm sounds of the classic analog drum machines of the 80's, like the Roland TR-606, TR-808 and TR-909. The circuitry of the LDB-1e uses the same principals as the classics and produces a very similar sound.

The module contains the same drum circuitry found in the Delptronics LDB-1 Drum Machine, which is a complete drum machine including a sequencer.

All drums can be played simultaneously, including open and closed hi-hat for a super punchy cymbal Connect it to any sequencer or clock source. Built-in gate to trigger converter. A square wave of any duty cycle will trigger the drums. So, there is no need to generate a 5MS trigger pulse.

An expansion module will be available in the future providing individual output and volume control for each instrument.

I am eagerly awaiting the release of the stand alone LDB-1, how about you?
