Programming Section

Programming the Drumulator is a two level process. Segment Mode is used to create short rhythmic patterns (typically a few measures in length). In Song Mode these segments are linked together into complete songs. The functions of the programming buttons depend on which mode the Drumulator is in. Song Segment Toggles the Drumulator betwen Song and Segment modes. The LEDs indicate the current state. Auto Correct Sets the resolution at which the Drumulator corrects rhythmic inaccuracies in your...

Sound Selection

Toggles the function of the Sound Select buttons between drum sounds (lower labels) and percussion sounds (upper labels). LEDs indicate the current state. Sound Select (1-6) Select the sounds to be assigned to each play button. Also used to enter numerical data, to set the Auto Correct resolution, and to set the metronome and trigger rate. Met Trig (7) Gsed in combination with the Select buttons to set the metronome rate (i.e., quarter note, eighth note triplet, etc.) and to program...

Interface Specifications Revision of 19

The Drumulator was designed as a low cost digital drum machine with a minimum of expensive frills. As a result, the hardware contains no provision for external control, such as a parallel or serial port (nor is there any extra board space for such a component). However, due to popular demand, we have decided to add a feature for the computer hobbyist, allowing you to completely control the Drumulator sound generator via your external computer. The External Computer feature comes standard with...

5Drumulator Debug Package

The Drumulator debug package is intended for both production and field testing debugging of Drumulator hardware. It is not intended as a final Q.A. functional test system, as this must be accomplished with the current production release of Drumulator software and a separate procedure will be outlined for final testing. Rather, the debug package is designed to isolate specific problems within a Drumulator and assist the technician in correcting them. The Drumulator debug package consists of a...

3Drumulator Theory of Operation

The Drumulator is a computer controlled digital synthesizer designed specifically to produce digitally recorded drum sounds using relatively inexpensive hardware. This has been accomplished by making extensive use of software, both by the main Z-80 CPU, and by the special purpose register file controller. As a result, the theory of operation of many of the Drumulator functional blocks requires an understanding of both the hardware and the effective function of the driving software. SEE PAGE 29...

Drumulator Testing Procedure

This section of the manual will describe how to test the Drumulator for proper functionality and give a few pointers on troubleshooting. Note that each step will have references to other sections of the manual for further information. The Drumulator is a software-based instrument, and software never breaks. Therefore, testing will be restricted to the hardware, which is quite easy. As an example some of the blue buttons control six functions in software but only need to be pressed once to test...
