Buying Choices

MFB are a manufacturer that may have not come to your attention before, perhaps they occupy the boutique end of the market in your mind and are therefore overlooked as a possibility. At this years Musikmesse I saw a couple of things that changed my own perception - the first was Dominion 1 synth - a very well specified monosynth at a competitive price (in the EU).

But more interestingly, especially given the focus on retro drum voices brought on by the Roland AIRA TR-8 drum machine, the Tanzbar Drum machine (or Dancing Bear) - which offers a simillar A/B pattern approach to analog 808 and 909 type voicing together with CV and Gate plus Parameter Sequencing - something I felt was missing from the TR-8.

So if you are looking at an analog drum machine (modelled or actual) I would certainly give this serious consideration.

MBF Tanzbar is available now at around €840
