fd500 “In-Line Effects DF500 Drumfire, Five Channel Synthesizer/Mixer/Remote Contacts in very good used condition both functionally and cosmetically. This is one of the coolest musical devices I’ve ever come across. It’s like the best of all worlds rhythm keeper, drum machine, Stompbox, Foot Bass, BeatBuddy, etc.. It pains me to let this go because I know may never find another in this comparable condition with the original triggers. This unit functions 100% as it should and is guaranteed to arrive as such. As I mentioned, 4 of the 5 original triggers are included, and work perfectly. Usually if you can find one of these, they are either broken or don’t include any of the original triggers. I used this df500, for adding percussion to my solo guitar performances, by simply setting the sounds and tapping the triggers accordingly. It’s very much a “set it and forget it” kind of device…Very Easy to understand and use, but offers diversity nonetheless. ” Link

df500 “This a a vintage drum synth made in japan. It’s all analog and sounds awesome! It consists of 5 separate synths which each can be triggered independently and then mixed together. Each synth consists of an envelope that controls a triangle wave and a noise source. You can get low deep bass sounds, punchy tom sounds, cracking snare sounds, and ok noisey cymbal like sounds. It originally came with five piezo triggers that you can put on drums to trigger the envelope but because of they’re age they’re all really brittle and useless anyway, so I’ve included 5 piezo discs that you can make your own by soldering them to an instrument cable and dipping in plasti-dip with if you want. Also the synth functions great with triggers and gates from analog synths. I mainly used it with an analog sequencer.

This synth is 100% functioning and in pretty good condition. It is missing one screw in the back and has a few scratches but nothing really noticeable.” Link

“Great and rare Drumfire DF-2000 analog drum machine synth. These have been described as “moogs for drums” and are externally triggered through the audio inputs. I have included many photos of the unit powered on in my studio so that you can inspect it cosmetically – very nice overall. Note that the only unit for sale in this auction is the DF-2000. This unit is capable of deep bass, snares, and many other abstract and unique drum sounds. They have been used by electronic artists such as Pan Sonic.” Link

“Up for bid is an Inline Drumfire Analog Drum Module Synthesizer. It is very similar to a Simmons SDS-8 or the Tama Techstar modules. It works with drum pads, but can be triggered with contact micsor a keyboard, and the adjacent inputs and outputs of the five channels can be chained to trigger a ‘5 voice synth’. A demo link is below and demonstrates versatility of analog drum modules. It works well, but is missing some screws. ” Link

“For your consideration is my

In-Line Effects DrumFire Drum Fire DF500 5 Channel Analog Drum synthesizer.

Made In Japan. MIJ.

These are getting harder to find as they have been out of production for a long time.

Similar to Vermona DRM, Simmons SDS and Tama Techstar line of drum synths. (Yes, I realize how broad that is 🙂

Each channel is identical with individual ins/outs and sensitivity, oscillator decay, noise decay, sweep, pitch, osc/noise balance, volume and pan controls.
Each channel also has a “click” function wich mixes the triggers click with the oscillator.

The unit also has stereo headphone outs, foot switch in and Stereo outs with individual level control.

I personally enjoyed cascading the channels into one another and creating a 5 Oscillator monster hit :)” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Up for auction is this Drumfire DF500. The Drumfire DF-500 is a 5 channel drum synth module. The 5 channels are identical, with their own Trigger-In and Audio Out sockets. Each channel is a mini analogue synth drum module, capable of producing a wide range of electronic drum sounds, and since every parameter is defined by a knob, it’s highly tweakable. The 5 drum channels also have their own level and pan pots, and the signals are mixed to a pair of stereo outputs with Left/Right volume control. Each channel has 9 controls (8 knobs & 1 switch): -SENSITIVITY controls pickup/trigger in sensitivity -OSCILLATOR DECAY controls decay time of the synth oscillator -NOISE DECAY controls decay time of the noise sound -SWEEP alters oscillator frequency -PITCH changes oscillator pitch -BALANCE controls balance between oscillator/noise -VOLUME output volume to mixer -PAN L/R balance control, also allow dual output on L/R jacks” This item has been stored for several years but is in fine working condition.” Auction ended.

“The Drumfire is 5 channels of analog bliss. It gives you five independent analog synthesizers, triggerable from audio or voltage pulse. It sounds more like a Tama Techstar than a Simmons.

This unit is in excellent cosmetic condition and works 100% perfectly. It comes with its original box and set of piezo triggers (unopened).” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“For Sale is a used ds500 drumfire Analog Drum Machine

it says five channel synthesizer mixer, remote contacts

beyond that I dont know how to trigger it.

It powers on and when I wiggle the sensitivity knobs it makes some drum sounds, but I guess it requires some external pads or something?

I dont know anything about it, its pretty dusty so I assume the pots need to be cleaned.

I cant tell if this is in good shape or not, sold as is.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

” Up for sale is the DF500 Drum trigger synth from DrumFire. This unit is non-functional, but it appears to be from a broken power button (see pic). This could easily be fixed with a new power button, and some sauldering of the old contacts. This will be a NO RESERVE AUCTION. You can do so much with one of these. Someone gave it to me, but I cannot use it with the particular genre of music I am currently into. You can use it as a drum trigger system, or you can plug just about anything into one of the channels and just go crazy with the sounds! each channel has the following controls:

* Sensitivity
* Oscillator Decay
* Noise Decay
* Sweep
* Pitch
* Osc/Noise Balance
* Volume
* Pan
* Click On/Off Button

Each channel also has 1 input and 1 output. there are also left and right main outs, as well an input for a foot switch, and a headphone jack! ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
