Right outta the gate...
TrunkBumps, 28.02.2019
Well, I've only had an hour with it so far and I'm blown away by the sound. It's nothing like the Tanzbar 2 (which is also a fantastic drum machine) but it BOOMS like nothing else I've heard- seemingly much more headroom that most other drum machines allowing for more volume overall too. The sky is the limit with this thing! Love at first listen is how I personally feel about it. I've read other owner's comments on various forums and one thing they all agreed on is that the Alpha Base sounds HUGE and does not sound like ANYTHING else out there on the market, and you can add me to that consensus. This is just another example of premium German engineering and design.- at it's finest. I am so grateful that thomann carries this amazing instrument and sells it at such a fair price. I only wish I would have discovered thomann years ago; I could have saved myself a lot of money. But, back to the AB...If you make dance music, techno, house, industrial- this a must-have drum synth. It can do other styles too of course, but it excels at the genres I mentioned. Now, it's possible that I will encounter a bug or two as I explore all this magic box has to offer, but it doesn't change the fact that it sounds AMAZING:) and I'm sure Jomox will support it completely and update the OS when necessary. Like I said, it was Love at First Listen for me:). If you're on the fence, just read the manual and learn about the features and see if it fits in your workflow. Now, back to the beats:D Thank you thomann, and thank you Jomox!:D

Great Sound. Bad Interface.
Andre1865, 11.12.2019
I purchased this box with the intention of using it for live performance.

I already own the Elektron Analog RYTM which i think is a very good drum Machine but sadly, it is "too much" to use intuitively in a live performance beyond simply muting things and some basic actions.

I was in the market for something as simple as a Roland X0X style Drum Machine, but with a high spec sound and the ability to be able to shape and push the sound enough to not get bored with it..

So essentially, something as playable and enjoyable as a Roland TR9089 / TR808 but without being limited to the same sound pallete for the rest of human history.

the Alpha base seems to offer this, and it does have an impressive sound but for my use case, it is not suitable

the thing is built well and feels solid and is well spec'd with its features etc and would be a great drum / sound design tool for studio use, but using it live felt like more work than it should be.. so, be aware of the User Interface limits

what a monster this is
breatheasy, 22.09.2019
I bought the alpha base on thomann a few months ago.
It's a really easy to use intuitive instrument and since i've had, I have pretty much been absorbed by the possibility of playing it standalone at a party with a midi keyboard hooked up to it to trigger the 2 sample and fm synth sounds.
(my other drum synth is the vermona drm1- very nice, but this alpha base is something else!)
pros: very fat, warm, hard hitting punchy sounds from all the instruments. The kick drum is just beautiful. 64 step sequencer with parameter lock. very easy to change parameters while playing, min. menu diving. nice to have effects available(reverb and delay).
cons : the bpm is a bit off even with the last update 1.4. The synth is a bit temperamental. ( i lost a kit while fiddling with the live record. No idea how). Despite that, the alpha base is phenomenal.

AB for Alpha Base and AB for Absolutely Brilliant drum machine!
Massive sound and massive capabilities.
Total funky house techno machine, in one.
You could do a live set just with this machine.
I have no regrets with taking the step of investing in the Alpha Base, it's a 'keeper' for sure!
