  • OT: Jesus & Mary Chain Drum Machines

    So we had the fuzz thread, the trem thread (not sure if that one got moved to the new site) so now let's talk about drums.

    Anyone know about the drum machines they were using?

      Everything really.  You forgot Darklands.  I've been listening to Darklands a lot lately and have been digging that industrial esque sound on the drums.  I'm not crazy about the drums on Automatic but they finally got it right on Honey's Dead.  Love the drums on there.

    I'm not sure what they used. I don't think it really matters because they processed the drum machines in an attempt to make them sound more real. I think the Alesis SR-16 comes close to some of those sounds though.

      Maybe a Roland R8 due to the timeframe of technology. It's not really worth the time to try to process a drum machine to make it sound "more real"... Likely, it was just good programming if it sounds legit.
