I noticed the other day that there are more affordable analog synths out there now than ever before (MiniBrute, Microbrute, BSII, even the newer Moog stuff is a bargain compared to the past, also Korg stuff, etc.) however analog drum machines seem to be as pricey as ever. Sure there is the Volca Beats and the Rhythm Wolf but they are quite limited and often lack good usable sounds. There's the TR-8, though not analog, sounds pretty good for what it does but is rather limited to 808 and 909 sounds and if you want more sounds (707) it'll cost you even more bringing the cost upwards to that of analog drum machines. Most good analog drum machines these days with a decent amount of features for editing and sequencing cost $1000+ I'm thinking with the entrance of the new Beatstep Pro Arturia should look at perhaps doing their own analog drum machine that sounds great and works with drum gates.

Here here! Something like the DSI tempest, but not $2000.

I'm sure it can be done for well under $1000. Mind you I understand that it would possibly compete with Arturia's own Spark LE but I figure the Spark LE is about $250 USD now a decent analog drum machine I'm sure Arturia could do for $400-$500 USD. Of course we'd need CV inputs and hopefully 8 channel outputs like the 808/909 had.

Interesting idea, but I can't see it. Spark is their drum of choice, albeit a software version. A hardware analog drum machine would be quite a task. The Tempest is a great machine, I don't see anybody making a better version, given the two guys involved in it's birth.

A 5-6 voice drum machine without an onboard sequencer in the vein of the Vermona MKIII. Individual outs, cv control, and inserts for effects. Price point $400-600. This would be awesome.

More like the Akai Rhythm Wolf. Just significantly less terrible and without a sequencer.

I feel the pain. Today you either spend around $100 for an entry level drum machine or $1000+ for one that might be overkill. Nothing in between...

A drum machine should always have a sequencer by definition. Otherwise you'd have to call it something else.

BTW, I love the Akai Wolf sequencer. That's what I mainly use live. It would be my only beatbox if it had individual outs and a little better sounds. That FILL button is very important to me.

You can pick up a vermona DRM 1 for that, why not just get one of them.

DRM1 MKIII is over $1000 CDN, so just under $1000 USD. Surely a good quality analog drum machine with CV/Gate + MIDI + 8 audio outs (so I can got direct channels to a hardware mixer) can be done in around the $600 USD range. If they wanted they could go hybrid with half analog and half TAE. Call it the Allspark.

Me and many others are wanting to get away from laptops, do more live set ups with analog equipment. All the Arturia hardware gear is pretty affordable (well except the MatrixBrute), I have Mini & MicrBrute, BSP, 49 key Arturia MIDI keyboard, gonna buy a Keystep this month and now I just want an Arturia standalone analog drum machine (also a free T-shirt for having bouhgt so much Arturia gear :)

Heheheheh, this thread maybe dead, but I think Arturia heard you Old_School.
