Drum Studio (Aka Drumstudio) – Version v2.80A –  1990

Quite an unusual job for the SID:  samples.

Drum Studio is a simple step sequencer based on 32 steps patterns. All classics functions are here : copy/paste to easily duplicate patterns, clear a voice or the whole voices, tempo in BPM (would be nice to compare this BPM cycles to a classic Drum Machine like Roland TR-505…) and a simple but effective song mode where you can chain patterns.

7 sampled sounds are ready to bang : kick, snare, 4 basses and a vocal sample!

And now… here is the video !
(0’00” to 0’36” – free pattern mode / 0’37” to the end – song mode)
