SPECIFICATION + SOUNDS

8 track drum/percussion sampler kit with a 16 step sequencer, requires no soldering or electronics skills, tools or knowledge
Can store up to 64 16-bit mono samples with a sample rate of 44.1kHz, and using the CraftApp users can upload their own samples
Mixer stage per track with level and pan controls
Low-pass resonant filter per track with a dedicated Attack-Hold-Decay envelope
Amplitude Attack-Hold-Decay envelope per track
Tune control with 3 different pitch modes – SPEED, STRETCH and SHIFT
SPEED alters the pitch by playing the sample faster or slower
STRETCH selects the number of steps the sample will be stretched to fit into, allowing for tempo matching for looped samples
SHIFT activates a pitch shifting algorithm that maintains the same sample length along with a dedicated Attack-Hold-Decay envelope, which works well with samples containing melodic content
16 recallable patterns with up to 16 part pattern chaining
8 recallable kits that store the per track parameters for sonic changes on the fly
Global tempo and tap tempo with a step division for semi-quavers, quavers and quarter notes
Pattern groove control that up to half way increases the swing/shuffle amount and then provides 8 preset grooves that allow for triplets and other non-conventional rhythms
Live input mode that allows steps to be played in while the sequencer is running
Class-compliant MIDI provided over USB connection to host computer, tablet, or smartphone
Headphone and line output
Powered by USB Mini-B or optional AAA battery pack (Adafruit 727, 3 x AAA pack)
