Not really.  The Alphadrum stores samples on eprom.  All it does when you trigger it is cycle through the eprom and send the samples to the DA converter.  It's not an effect, per se.

It's funny to think of this circuit now.  A typical e-snare tends to start out with around 8 voices and 32 samples these days.   :)  The Alpha would sound like a machine gun by comparison.  An 8-bit machine gun.

But it have an ancient beauty... I almost want to build one just to keep it essence alive!
Very, very, very beautiful...  Very beautiful...

I can appreciate that.   ;D  As far as drum projects go, someday I'll get around to building that Simmons SDS3 brain.   :icon_twisted:
