Before we begin... You can get it at http://www.stonesthrow.com and it's limited to 100 pieces (yes, one hundred only). And yes, Dam's name is pronounced like "Dame/Same/Game, etc." and I am not saying wrong just in case you are scratching your head while watching the video.
Now then, Hello! I make music and I review gear and love to teach what I discover so others can enjoy soothing repetitious beats and creative music making. Presented here is my explanation, demo and review of the NEW limited edition Dam Funk Drum Machine - yes, available for a limited time and via a limited production run from Stones Throw Records (read: Collectible!).
How did this project come to be? "Well I wanted to make something special for Dam and I reached out to Bleep Labs since I am a huge fan of their products. I told them what I would like the machine to do and they made it happen." says Scotty Coats from Stones Throw. Like he says it's a Bleep Labs design with 4 drum sounds, 4 patterns, play/record, reverse and pitch control over the bass drum and high tom. The tempo is fully adjustable with knob control or tap tempo. There is a very useful LED that changes color per pattern playing to help you keep track of where you are. Patterns are automatically quantized when played in. There is a 9V DC power source and no jack for a wall wart but a mod could easily be added if you dare. The open PCB construction should lend itself to other mods as time goes on and the masses get busy with this thing. I am sure a user-created enclosure will be around the corner as well. Only time will tell.
I love it. It's a fun time to play with for music geeks like me, so don't buy one thinking it is a MPC or Logic in a cute box. It's portable funk and very useful to get your mind out of the DAW world for a second... yes, put Ableton down and push some non-QWERTY buttons, you'll thank me later.

Again, from what I've been told you can get it at www.Stonesthrow.com (http://stonesthrow.com) and its limited to 100 pieces (yes, one hundred only).
Oh yeah, thanks for stopping by and checking out another one of my videos.
