during TD's tour in 1984 the equipment list states that TD used many drum modules/machines.
i am trying to figure out what simmons modules they used.
i will be looking at the other drum computers shortly but if anyone has any information on TD's drum modules i would love to hear from you
simmons link http://www.simmons.synth.net/links.shtml
thanks in advance

There's even a famous shot of 'Edgar' sitting at the kit (In Franke's Spandau studio) in Electronic Soundmaker & Computer Music, Jan 1985

drum machines?

hmmm... Oberheim DMX, Linn Drum, a couple of Custom ones, with self burnt EPROMS with samples from other drum machines. Sequencial Circuits Drumtraks and (for Edgar) a TR808 (especially on Kamikaze 1989 and Pinnacles)...where do you stop?

i am mainly wanting info on the drum machines/modules used only on the poland album/ tangent is the track im researching , and im just lacking info
i aint many links but when i do get a good one its either in german/dutch or polish grrrrrrrrrr

• Roland TR-808 info on this one is quite easy!!
• Bohm Digital Drums
• Simmons Drum Modules
• Syntec Custom Digital Drum Computer

i also know that they used the ppg wave for triggering drum samples on occasions .
so any info on the rest would be kool guys
just send me the links it would be the best idea.
yours

Don't worry Andy, I 've send them this photo so it's up to me to stand for you :twisted: - you've helped a lot, with the research.
At least, you won't get the shot from me :D :wink:
