The MFB-522 is a drumcomputer with a fully analogue sound engine that offers plenty of editing capabilities. It includes a step-sequencer with popular TR-style running-light-programming. Memory locations are available for 72 x patterns as well as for 8 x songs.

The step-sequencer allows programming of 72 x basic patterns plus 72 x fill-ins. The latter being associated to the basic pattern memory location, resulting in a two-bar-pattern when using the fill-in. Patterns can be combined to eight songs that each hold a user-definable sequence of up to 64 x patterns. In addition to the instruments, a global accent-track is available. When set, the corresponding step will be played with a higher or lower volume-setting in comparison to the standard level.

The MFB-522's sequencer offers three different steps of shuffling. A stereo output will carry all instruments minus those where individual outputs are in use (bass drum, snare drum / rimshot, claps and Hihat). Using the MIDI-In, drum-sounds can be played with a keyboard or external sequencer. Here, the sound sources act velocity sensitive. Finally, the MFB-522 can be synchronized to incoming MIDI-clock.

  • Available edit controls
  • Bass drum [Decay, Tune, Tone, Level] The bass drum can be programmed in two different lengths per pattern. It also offers and individual output
  • Cymbal [Tone, Decay, Level] Tune sets the pitch for Cymbal, Cowbell and Hihat
  • Snare drum [noise, tone, level]: rimshot [level] snare drum and rimshot cannot be played simultaneously. However, they can be used in the same pattern. Both instruments share the same individual output
  • Open/closed hihat [decay, level] open and closed hihat cannot be played simultaneously
  • Clap [attack, filter, decay, level] The parameters allow setting the width and fullness of the clap sound. This sound also has its proprietary individual output
  • Tom/Conga [tune, decay, level): this sound source can be switched between Tom and Conga instruments. Sounds programming allows setting of 3 x different pitches
  • Cowbell [tune, decay, level]: clave [level] tune for cowbell controls a detune-effect, while the pitch is set commonly with cymbal and hihat. Cowbell and clave cannot be played simultaneously. However, they can be used in the same pattern
