Akemie's Taiko FM Drum Voice - 18HP


The Akemie's Taiko is ALM Busy Circuits new take on their implementation of classic Yamaha IC's. Using a similar design as the Akemie's Castle, the Taiko is meant more as an FM drum voice, rather than a synthesizer voice. It has CV control over every parameter, which includes release envelopes for both the Operator and Modulator waves, algorithm type, ratios, waveforms, and feedback. With all these variable controls, the sound palette is far reaching. When using less in-harmonic timbres, the Akemie's Taiko can also track musically at 1v/Oct, allowing one to use it as a synth voice as well. Being specialized as a drum module, it contains a Trigger input, along with Accent and Choke for various rhythmic variations. 


  • Complete drum voice with authentic 4 Operator / 6 Algorithm / 8 Waveform / Feedback FM
  • Full voltage control including Algorithm selection
  • Inbuilt envelopes with separate release control of FM carriers and modulator
  • Tracks 1v per octave for melody lines
  • Optional Frequency ‘ramps’ for for further effects and FM
  • Trigger, accent and choke trigger inputs
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • Skiff friendly
  • Can tear holes in space time
