This time, we will talk about drum machines and sequencers: What are they good for? How to make percussive patterns AKA beats? How does it sound?
We will learn about some of the most iconic drum machines, take a closer look at a few popular ones including MPC, Electribe and Volca Beats, and some of you will also present the drum machines you use in your setup.

Gear Talk is organized by girls from KOMA & Common Ground and we are here to help you find answers to these questions and discuss all sorts of issues, experiences as well as personal favourites. Each time, our guests or invited artists will bring their gear and talk about its features and use in their music.
Feel free to bring your machine, manual or anything you have an issue with. If you’d like to present your gear or walk us through your setup, get in touch with us at [email protected]
so we can plan ahead!
Gear Talk is especially welcoming womxn, non-binary as well as youngsters, but it’s open to everyone from complete beginners to gear heads.
We aim for a completely open and supportive atmosphere. Every question is a good question!
