Analogue Solutions Europa and Tama Techstar

The Tama Techstar is not too far from a Pearl Syncussion SY1. Paired with a new Analog Solutions Europa hardware TR style sequencer and you have vintage drum machine awesomeness! I need to get this set up myself… it’s certainly unique.

The TAMA TS-305 is a 6 channel drum synth module. It can be used as a desktop module or a massive 7u 19″ Rackmount. Each channel is a mini analogue synth drum module, capable of producing a wide range of electronic drum sounds, and since every parameter is defined by a knob, it’s highly tweakable.” – cykong.com

Would you spend around a grand for a set up like this?

  1. Analogue is the shit…I’ve still not heard a VST that even comes close to replicating that badass sound. That sequencer seems pretty sweet too! That setup looks worth a cool G to me!

    1. Yeah the Europa is making me hunt down old analog gear that worked via trigger. There must be more gems waiting to be useful again!

  2. I have a Tama Techstar Tsq-1000 that lets you do almost exactly what the Europa is doing here, it uses Sync24 and has 6 trigger outs.

  3. The Tamas are underrated, they’re pretty affordable on eBay.

    got something simlar with a yamaha rx7 driving an InLineEffects Drumfire and a Synare3, which sound a million times better than the TAMA stuff. A friend has the pearl syncussion and its real sweet,too… Would i pay a grand for it? fuck no. Id get a vermona.
