ElectroKraft release Super Synth Drums for the NES

Super Synth Drums for the NES.

Music producers in search of that unmistakable 8-bit sound have a plethora of options available to them, but few are as authentic as Super Synth Drums - an actual cartridge that works on a real (or pirate) NES system. Granted, its sound palette is so narrow you could spit across it, and the Midines is a far better bit of kit, but it’s half the price and we always like to see more labor-of-love projects supporting discontinued hardware.

The Super Synth Drums cartridge is available from ElectroKraft for $49 plus shipping. Click through for a terrible demonstration video, which demonstrates as much of the demonstrators crotch as it does the actual product.

    The Super Synth Drums cartridge was not intended to compete with midines. My cart is a very simple program that produces 8 bit NES percussion sounds.

    I just learned 6502 ASM language, taught to me by the people at NESDev.com

    Donating 15% of sales made on ebay to a hunger charity called “Action Against Hunger”, based in NY.

    Just as someone might like to pick up a hand drum, bongo or tabla and just start playing it, this was the same idea I had for the Super Synth Drums cart, very simple and easy (and fun).

    Thanks for the interest, I appreciate it.
