Superbooth 24: Erica Synths showcased a prototype of its upcoming Bullfrog Drums, a new 7-track sample-based drum machine, in collaboration with Richie Hawtin.

The Bullfrog Snythesizer is the joint project of Erica Synths and star producer Richie Hawtin. This year, the Bullfrog XL version was released. Frogs were also the big topic at Superbooth 24 this year, but not in the context of music.

But another bullfrog sneaked into the Erica Synths booth. The Latvian company has shown a prototype of the Bullfrog Drums.

Bullfrog Drums were not officially shown; only a prototype was on the stand. According to the YouTube channel motobor, Bullfrog Drums is a 7-track sample-based drum machine. 

It looks very easy to use with its classic 909-style clicky buttons and large knobs. An official feature set is not yet available, but we can see on the unit that it has 16 instruments and functions, such as last step, shuffle, mute, accent, ratchet, probability, and more.

Then, the big knobs will mainly tweak the loaded samples, including the pitch, attack, decay, drive, volume, and more. There is also a classic display with a data encoder.

First Impression

At first glance, I’m sure the Bullfrog Drums won’t turn the drum machine market on its head. I think it is again made for the education sector, and it fits in very well. According to the first features, it looks like a solid, hands-on drum machine. Stay tuned for more details.
