In 2011, famed engineers Dave Smith and Roger Linn collaborated to release the Dave Smith Instruments Tempest, a hybrid analog and digital drum machine and drum synthesizer. The Tempest combines the best of DSI synth technology, the LinnDrum’s design, and the Akai MPC60’s soft pads and sample manipulation. It not only features samples from classic drum machines and acoustic drums but also has 6 analog synth voices, 16 velocity-sensitive pads, 2 pressure sensitive slide controllers, deep modulation and pattern capabilities, various analog and MIDI effects, and can have up to 32 different layered sounds playing at once. Dave Smith and Roger Linn’s Tempest stands as one of the most advanced hardware drum machines ever created.
