Overview

The Rhythm Wolf is an authentic analog instrument that combines the coveted sounds of early electronic and hip-hop music with genuine Akai Professional workflow. Inspired by the classic analog beat machines and synthesizers of the past, Rhythm Wolf enables today's musicians to harness iconic analog sounds for music production and performance. The drum machine consists of five highly-tweakable drum sounds and includes a kick, snare, open & closed hi-hat, and metallic percussion. Onboard controls allow users to customize the tuning, amplitude
envelopes, and volume of each drum voice separately for precise real-time adjustment. The bass synthesizer features a selectable oscillator (sawtooth or square wave), classic filter design, a filter envelope with variable decay, and is capable of creating powerful bass sounds and squelchy leads.

Outfitted with six genuine MPC pads and a built-in 32-step sequencer, the Rhythm Wolf provides an ultra-responsive interface with a classic drum machine layout. Drum patterns can be fine-tuned using the Swing function, Pattern Select, and Tempo Control knob. A custom distortion signal path, activated by the "Howl" knob, adds grit and character for additional tone shaping. Rhythm Wolf features USB-MIDI, MIDI In/Out, a gate trigger, and integrates seamlessly with modern and vintage equipment. Two audio outputs enable producers and performers to mix percussion sounds and bass independently.

Features
  • 5-voice analog drum machine and synth
  • Thick analog drum sounds”kick, snare, open & closed hi-hat and metallic percussion
  • Onboard 32-step sequencer with classic drum machine workflow
  • Gate trigger In/Out for triggering your sequences via modular synths, vintage sequencers, or external sound sources
  • "Howl" knob with custom distortion signal path lets you crush and mangle sounds
  • Six custom-calibrated MPC pads for sequencing and finger drumming
  • Dedicated audio outputs for percussion sounds and bass synth

Comments about Akai Professional RHYTHM WOLF Analog Drum and Bass Module:

Probably the worst Anolog Beat Box ever produced. The Decay on the Kick drum is useless. The Howl is an opinion. You might like it, you might not. The Anaolg output is very very noisy. I would not use this in a studio setting what so ever. It may be useful in a home setting playing around, but you will not get a very professional recording out of this thing without some serious production work to clean it up. From what I understand, they were trying to imitate a 303 with the baseline with there own version. The Baseline is not even close to a good imitation of a 303. I give it one Star because the Snare and Hat actually have good sound, except the overall Audio Output..

        Comments about Akai Professional RHYTHM WOLF Analog Drum and Bass Module:

        I've mixed it into my DJ rig a couple of times, but mainly use it in the studio to build beats with my BS2, record, then lay down guitar on top. It's simple, versatile, and analog. What's not to like? It's wayyy more fun than other products at this price point. I would actually give it 4.5 stars as is, or five stars if it had 1-2 more drum/percussion channels and a few more canned patterns to build on. I hope the product survives in the market so they can rev it a couple more times and make it even better.

        If you're new to creating beats with straight hardware, and especially if you're new to sequencing, then buy this and you will not be disappointed! It's plenty cool and quite engaging.

        Great for Jamming Fun

        Comments about Akai Professional RHYTHM WOLF Analog Drum and Bass Module:

        I use this along with my BassStation 2 for live jamming. Sounds are generally good with the exception of the snare, which is very limited in it's character. Fun for tweaking while jamming with BS2 and my ipad sequencer. Would I record with this? Not likely as I have better sounds in the box. Is it great fun to play like an instrument? Heck yeah! Built solid, nothing at this price compares.
