Akai Rhythm Wolf


Out of stock


Drum box / bass synth / sequencer (aka groovebox) from Akai. The Rhythm Wolf has an analogue signal path with tweakable kick, snare, open & closed hats plus percussion accent sounds and the simple bass synth with switchable saw / square wave oscillator has a variable filter

In & outs include a USB & din midi connectors, gate trigger in & out and separate outputs for the synth & main outputs

There are 16 banks with 16 steps and A & B patterns for each, plus a fill. Uisng all 16 banks you end up with 64 step-patterns

“If you want some dirt old-school analog splat and aren’t afraid of the wild tuning irregularities and vanishing kick drum, then perhaps you have what it takes to tame the Akai Rhythm Wolf

…it also has a scruffy charm that some will find irresistible”
