Jomox will be showing the MBase11 at this year’s MusikMesse in Frankfurt. The MBase11 is the logical follower of the MBase01 and offers even better performance, more versatility and an even phatter sound!
Like the XBASE 999/888, the MBase11 has a compression parameter to vary the thickness of decaying sound.
And…it offers a variable gate time to to create very different sounding attacks. And…it also has a metalize parameter to have hundreds of variations on the attack noise.
For more intuitive editing, we have added an analog potentiometer that works alternatively to the parameter editing when scrolling the data wheel is too hard. The MBase11 purposefully sounds a bit different to the XBASE 999/888, making it a great sounding expansion for our other drum products and other analog percussion.
The kick sets in very precisely and the attack sounds very snappy at all kinds of sound variations. The MBase11 can also be used as a real bass with some limitations. If decay is cranked up it is long enough for tones and the pitch can be played on the keyboard in semitones over three octaves.
The MBase11 will be Available May 2009.
