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 customize 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 ultra-responsive 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.

  • Analog goodness!

The Tom Cat is very similar to the Rhythm Wolf in the sense they are both analog drum machines made by Akai. The Tom Cat however is more aggressive than the wolf and should compliment harsher genres of music. Recommended!

A cool drum machine. Works well with industrial/techno sounding music. The disco toms sound pretty cool. Easy to use.

if you like your drums dirty, noisy, hard & aggressive this is a fun machine and does the job. beyond that i would not recommend it to anyone looking for a more clean/traditional electronic drum sounds... but having said that, I like dirty drums so I like this machine.
