We’ve got the official details on the leaked PERKONS drum machine. It’s also a synthesizer, looks completely epic and is definitely something to do with THUNDER!

PERKONS HD-01

I got the Thunder bit right from my thoughts on the leaked photograph but was wrong about it being named after a 1980s Latvian rock band. But that takes nothing away from this dramatic looking drum machine, synthesizer and percussion performance station. PERKONS looks the business.

Update: Here’s a full 5-minute demo from Hainbach:

PERKONS features four hybrid voices made up of a digital sound engine, analogue filter and overdrive.  Each voice has 3 sound engine modes with 8 knob controls over the parameters including filter and FX send. There’s a built-in LFO with morphable waveforms, an analogue BBD delay circuit with send and return for each voice and an optical compressor. Each voice also has a velocity-sensitive trigger input, individual output and effects send/return on grown-up jacks. At the end of the chain is a master overdrive.

For sequencing the 4-lane sequencer gives you simultaneous control over all 4 voices. There are 4 tracks with 4 time divisions and 4 times multiplications per track. Each step can have ratchets and probabilities and there are 4 shuffle algorithms. There’s also MIDI in/out.
