SUMMER NAMM 2017: DigiTech has announced the SDRUM, the world’s first intelligent drum machine for guitarists and bassists.
Building on the TRIO’s ‘listen and learn’ format, the SDRUM is programmed by simply scratching across your guitar strings to teach the pedal a kick and snare pattern.
The SDRUM then generates a "professional-sounding" drum beat with embellishments and variations to complement the beat.
Up to 36 different songs can be stored and beats are played from a choice of five different kits spanning different genres.
Players can program up to three different parts and switch between them on the fly for live performances.
The SDRUM is due to arrive later this year for $199.95 - see DigiTech (opens in new tab) for more.
