ALM Busy Circuits Tyso Daiko

Building on their line of drum voices, the Tyso Daiko from ALM Busy Circuits is a dual 12-bit wavetable drum voice featuring an analog EQ path and loads of voltage control. Two voices are independently triggerable with their own outputs, sharing envelope, pitch, and wavetable parameters. This makes for related, yet distinct sounds which can be further adulterated by the EQ, Accent, and Choke trigger inputs. The first voice is automatically routed through the analog tilt EQ path, which also has an audio input for external signals, but you could also patch the second voice through it.

For shaping the voices, you have quite a few options, and each voice has small differences in how and what controls they react to. Both voices share the Wave control that morphs through 11 different waveforms for its timbral foundation. They also share Pitch, with start and end points, as well as a Rate knob controlling the speed of the ramp, being bypassed at full CCW. Only Voice 1 is influenced by the Choke input, and only Voice 2 is affected by the Fold control. Surface changes both Voices, adding a sharp click before noon and a slow volume sweep above that. Accent affects the Release time for both voices, with Voice 1 doubling its release, and Voice 2 halving its release.

Combining this voice with triggers and modulation can yield a seemingly endless amount of variation and sonic textures. With the options at your disposal, this can be the thick bass you need, the skittering cymbals of your dreams, or the tight, punchy snare desired by you. ALM's Tyso Daiko is a welcome addition to any size rack whether you're looking for more percussion options, or as your first drum voice.

Introducing Tyso Daiko - Dual Wavetable Drum Voice - ALM031
Introducing the TYSO DAIKO, the successor to the recently retired Dinky. The ‘Tyso Daiko’ updates our unique 12 bit drum module with another voice, new features, capabilities and improved control.

The Twin voices are independently triggered and output, but share pitch, envelope and other parameters of a swept wavetable oscillator (with updated waves). A ‘surface’ control to adds optional additional ‘punch’ or attack to output.

One voice is output through a voltage controlled analog tilt EQ emphasising upper or lower frequencies. The other voice is output through a digital wavefolder which adds increasing timbre complexity reaching noise. Voices also feature accent and choke control (voice 1!).

Full voltage control including a V/Oct pitch input makes the Daiko a fun, expressive and wide ranging drum module with extremely wide pallet of sounds with lots of modulation possibilities.
