We've been excited about the possibility of a Dave Smith / Roger Linn drum machine since back when Crosstalk was still a regular feature, so you can imagine our surprise when the Dave Smith Instruments Tempest Analog Drum Machine suddenly materialized at Winter NAMM 2011.
This beauty is everything we could have hoped for and more; more a percussion-centric music production synth than a mere drum machine, the Tempest combines the best elements of Roger Linn's MPC designs and Dave Smith's epic synth sounds for an expressive and immersive tool for studio and live performance. And man does it look cool. Check out our video from the NAMM show floor.
