Dave Smith Tempest

The Beat of a Different Drum

Tempest is the brainchild of legendary instrument designers, Dave Smith and Roger Linn. It’s a professional drum machine that generates its sounds using six powerful analog synthesis voices, and uses an innovative, performance-oriented operating system that permits an extraordinary level of control to create, edit, arrange, and manipulate beats in real time without ever stopping.

  • The performance-oriented operating system, ninety panel controls, and bright 256 x 64 dot OLED display work together to provide a tightly integrated, non-stop workflow.
  • Record a drumbeat in real-time
  • Switch to another drumbeat and use the lit pads to record it using step programming
  • Switch to another drumbeat and record tuned keyboard parts
  • Use the two touch controllers to record real-time note sound animations or perform beat-wide sound changes
  • Use the generous sound controls to edit any of the drum sounds
  • Tweak the analog effects or drum mix
  • Arrange beats in real time and record the live arrangement into a song
  • And all of the above without ever stopping play

Each of the six analog voices has two analog oscillators plus two digital oscillators (with a large bank of included samples), the classic Curtis analog lowpass filter with audio-rate modulation, an additional highpass filter, analog VCA with feedback, five envelopes, two LFOs, an extraordinary variety of analog modulation routings, and stunning sonic quality, warmth, and punch. Although optimized for drum sounds, it excels at tuned sounds as well, and even doubles as a six-voice analog keyboard synth.

Sixteen pressure- and velocity-sensitive lit pads are arranged in a 2 x 8 configuration, providing intuitive access to all your fingers and the ideal compromise between the popular 4 x 4 pad arrangement (popular for real-time programming ) and 1 x 16 arrangement (popular for step programming) because Tempest does both. The pads can be used to play thirty-two drum sounds (two banks), mute/unmute the thirty-two sounds on playback, play and arrange sixteen beats in real time, play one sound at sixteen tunings (in a variety of scales) or sixteen velocities, or as sixteen time steps for step programming. The ROLL button permits creating drum rolls or repeated groove patterns by varying pad pressure as the beat records, and doubles as a momentary “stutter” effect when the pads are assigned to play beats.

In addition to the six stereo direct voice outputs, there are stereo mix outputs and phones outputs, plus two inputs for foot switches or expression pedals, MIDI in/out and USB.

Two pressure- and position-sensitive Note FX slide controllers permit real-time recording of note or beat-wide sound parameter changes into the drumbeat as you play. For example, record simultaneous filter frequency, tuning, envelope decay, and pan changes for each note. The Playback key permits using the slider to override these parameters on playback, which can be recorded back into the beat. Plus, the sliders can be used in performance to alter beat-wide sound parameters like low-pass frequency or resonance, high-pass frequency, envelope attack or decay, and more.

  • A variety of unique effects are provided while maintaining a pure analog signal path:
  • Stereo analog compressor and distortion circuits affect the stereo output mix
  • Beat-synced delay is achieved by generating additional delayed note events within the sequencer
  • A beat-synced “stutter” effect is created entirely within the sequencer by looping short portions of the drumbeat on demand
  • The degree of swing timing can be adjusted in real time during playback. Roger used his entire bag of tricks to make the swing sound very human and natural.

In short, Tempest is a well-considered professional design that could only come from Roger and Dave, with a sonic quality and natural human rhythmic feel that are second to none, all in a compact, portable unit that measures a mere 15.4″ wide by 9″ deep by 2.5″ high

Elektron Analog Keys

The Analog Keys 37-Key 4-Voice Analog Synthesizer from Elektron is a semi-weighted, velocity-sensitive 37-key 4-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer. It can function in a variety of modes including polyphonic, as 4 separate mono synths, or 4-note unison. Analog Keys is powered by dual analog oscillators, 2 sub-oscillators, and a noise generator. While its signal path is 100% analog, the synth has digital control, allowing you to store your sounds as presets for easy recall.

For altering, warping, and modulating your sounds, the Analog Keys features a 4-pole low-pass filter and 2-pole multi-mode filter per voice, each with an analog overdrive circuit. A variety of modulations options are provided to each voice via dual assignable LFOs and envelopes, AM cross-modulation, oscillator sync, and more. It also features Elektron's step sequencer that can control both the synth and FX sections.

Thanks to a variety of routing options, the Analog Keys can be integrated with other analog and digital equipment. It features both 5-pin DIN and USB MIDI connectivity in addition to CV Gate outputs. On the audio front, you can route the analog audio out from each voice or as a stereo signal.

Total sound control

The critically acclaimed Elektron step sequencer gives unprecedented control over synth and FX parameters. Alter the parameters of each individual note for maximal expression. It is even possible to change synth patches per sequencer step.

Dual filter force

The 4-pole lowpass ladder filter and 2-pole multi-mode filter of each voice are incredible tools when shaping sounds. The overdrive circuit of the filter section can add gentle warming or total destruction. All bases are covered.

A voice for every situation

Voice allocation is fully customizable. The Analog Keys can be used as a polyphonic four voice synthesizer, as four separate monophonic synthesizers, in a four note unison mode, or anything in between. Lush chords and huge mono sounds: have it all.

Brilliant FX

The effects section of the Analog Keys is a perfect match for the strong analog tones. Use chorus, delay and reverb for situating sounds in vast cathedrals, bottomless pits and head-spinning rotating rooms. The FX make things shine.

External processing

Two audio inputs allow processing of external audio. The scenarios are many. Use the Analog Keys as a stereo analog filterbank, controlled by the sequencer and the other modulation sources. Or as an FX box. Or a mix of both.

Convenient storage

Sounds can of course be stored. Save the best sounds and create a collection of the most inspiring analog patches, ready to be recalled at all times. No tedious recreation of analog patches is necessary. This machine is instant.
