Overview

Analog Drum Machine with Built-in Percussion Voices

Get some real analogue character in your tracks, with the ability to work standalone, via Gate Trigger, USB and MIDI. The Akai Tom Cat also features pads for live playing and like all Akai hardware the Cat is more fun to play with than a big ball of string. It also plays nicely with companion pieces like the Rhythm Wolf.

Dial your Growl

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. Onboard controls—all continuously variable—enable users to customise the tuning, amplitude envelopes, and volume of each drum voice separately for precise real-time adjustment.

Outfitted with six MPC-style pads and a built-in 32-step sequencer, Tom Cat provides an ultraresponsive interface with a classic drum machine layout. Drum patterns can be fine-tuned using the Swing function, Pattern Select, and Tempo Control knob. A custom signal path, activated by its unique “Maul” circuitry, lets the user ‘dirty up’ their drum beats for just the right effect.

Key Features:

  • True analog drum machine with 5 percussion voices
  • Kick, Snare, and Clap sounds with chromatically tunable Disco Toms
  • Onboard 32-step sequencer with classic drum machine workflow
  • Gate trigger In/Out, for triggering your sequences via modular synths, vintage sequencers or external sound sources
  • “Maul” circuitry to dirty up your drum beats
  • 6 custom-calibrated MPC-style pads for sequencing and finger drumming
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, Akai 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.
