Scientist - Attack Dub (1981)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbC68lOod64

Good examples at: 0:26, 0:42, 1:28, 1:40, 1:45

Quite possibly something put out by Pearl or Simmons in 1981 or earlier but I'm not at all familiar with their analog synth drum replacement products. Or a send to cv of old analog synth?

Or toms recorded to tape and the sound replaced during mixdown?

Amazing "wobbly" analog synth sound, like a 1Hz LFO on the pitch and a long decay without retriggering on rolls??? Also amplitude is all over the place... maybe the controls were manipulated by hand realtime.

Thanks![url][/url]

I believe he was using a Mutron III and sometimes I think he used a Pollard Syn-Drum. I'm almost positive Jammy used the Syn-Drum. I know from experience that a Digi-Tech Envelope Filter will make very similar sounds. The Mutron is also an Envelope filter.

More of a percussion style use of a synth drum all over the chune.
