Made by two legendary electronic instrument designers and built with live performance in mind, the Tempest is an analogue/digital synth based on tweaked Evolver/Tetra/Prophet 08 voice chips that also comes with an MPC-style sequencer.
The Tempest's six-voice polyphonic sound engine has two digitally-controlled analogue oscillators (DCOs) and two digital oscillators containing one-shot drum machine samples.
So, how does it sound and feel? Well, imagine a pimped up MPC3000 or 60 sequencer attached to a DSI Mopho/Evolver with real-time control/effects and you get the idea. Recording beats is easy - simply press record while the sequencer is playing and the beat will loop. You can then overdub/erase sounds as you want (like on an MPC). You can also enter each sound manually using the 16 steps in event mode.
As you may have gathered, this is a seriously deep machine. It may be pricey, but no other drum machine on the market is this powerful in terms of hands-on synthesis.45 Stars
