The Cyclone Analogic TT-606 Drum Drone is a modern recreation of the legendary Roland TR-606 Dramatix. Like its predecessor, the TT-606 is completely analog and features the classic front panel interface. However, unlike the Roland unit, the TT-606 features individual outputs per sound. There’s also a MIDI IN/OUT, headphone jack, and amplifier send for convenient routing and monitoring.
Sonically, the Drum Drone features the same classic sounds that made the TR a hit, with adjustable parameters for each sound. Things can get really precise when messing around with each sound’s selectable accent, flam, and roll tracks. In terms of sequencing, the TT offers options for tempo subdivisions, and features a programmable shuffle that is especially suitable for live performance.
The Cyclone Analogic TT-606 Drum Drone offers quick solutions for making varied and performable drum sequences. In this Drum Drone-only setup, we use the pattern edit mode to quickly create and modify a simple pattern. Channel mutes and per-instrument "morphing" allow for dynamic and variable patterns for use in live performance.
