New DigiTech lets players strum ‘n drum
UK distributor Sound Technology has announced the UK launch of DigiTech’s SDRUM, a revolutionary pedal which lets guitarists create drum patterns by strumming a guitar.
Billed as ‘The world’s first intelligent drum machine for guitarists and bassists’. the player scratches across a guitar’s strings to create a kick and snare drum pattern. Based on that, the SDRUM supplies a drum beat with different embellishments and variations to complement the beat.
The SDRUM stores up to 36 different songs. Beats are played from a choice of five different kits covering a wide range of genres. The pedal also supports three different parts (e.g. verse/chorus/bridge) for each song that can be switched on the fly for enhancing live performances and exploring song ideas.
