5 channel drum synthesizer. Just like the SDS 9 the source for the snare sounds are digital lo-fi samples. The user can choose out of 4 different snare samples.
The SDS 1000 offers the well known analog Simmons filters for editing the sounds, extended by a so called second skin filter: By adding a second tone to the drum sound you can simulate the resonance skin of a real tom. Well, nice trial ...
The SDS 1000 is very easy to handle, the sound is pretty ok.
5 trigger inputs, 5 single outs, mixed out and adjustable headphone output.
It exists in either a non-midi and a midi version (SDS 1000 M). Ask for midi if you are offerd one!
