i have the newer version of HH88 (with the source out, bought around 2003) 
and i still really like the sound a lot!

btw, maybe two same Analogue Solutions drum modules do not sound exactly the 
same, some times...

i had two BD78, bought at the same time, and they sounded different!

Thanks!  this is definitely useful know...  I imagine sourcing one of these 
older models might be kind of a challenge now though:/

It seems there is some interest in this and other cheap analog percussion 
units hence the MFB-502 thread.   The 502 (from the demos I have heard) is 
much more of a vintage noise cymbal sound (same as the MFB drum-03).  I 
believe there is no osc added to the noise tio give a more metallic sound... 
But I like the sound overall, and the fact that it is midi triggerable makes 
it a tidy little analogue drum source.  The toms in particular sound quite 
I have heard people complain the parameters don't offer much range, but I 
figure that's ok if you're not looking for anything beyond bread and 

And now we know novamusik has them new!:)
