Tom Cat is an exciting true analog drum machine with five built-in percussion voices, including kick, snare, and clap sounds with chromatically tunable Disco Toms.

On-board controls—all continuously variable—let you customize the tuning, amplitude envelopes, and volume of each drum voice separately for precise real-time adjustment, so you can get that perfect sound.

With Tom Cat we’ve put the sound and design of classic analog drum machines into a compact piece of gear that can be integrated into both modern and vintage rigs.
