Does anyone happen to know what drum machine The Dead Weather use during live performances of songs like "I Can't Hear You" and "I Just Want to Make Love to You". I could be the same thing used to make the drum effects in "The Difference Between Us" on Sea of Cowards. If anyone knows, that'd be great. Thank you!

Thank you! I doubt I can find a picture of it at TDW show to "prove" it or something but I appreciate your knowledge and I'll look into it. Thanks again!

I think it will be hard to track down one of those the brand its not even famous (that I know of) if you want to make those drum machine sounds you've got a few cheaper alternatives like getting a new drum machine (Akai are pretty good), a pad controller (also Akai makes good ones) or you can program them with software with this option you can find samples that sound very similar to that drum machine, if you have an iphone or ipod touch theres an app called funk box (i dont know if its available for the ipad) that is based on vintage drum machines I'm sure that can make the trick aswell... I guess I should have made this question first but why do you want a drum machine?

A friend and I are working on a side project. We are in one band, but we're considering starting another, possibly using a drum machine. Just in the early phases. We have a drum program for PC, but we're looking into multiple options. We're just trying a bunch of different stuff. Thanks for all the information, you're knowledge of drum machines is amazing.

no prob mate, well if that's what you are gonna do with the DM I suggest you buy an MPC from Akai there a lot of models and you can even find a used one for good price if you go for something old like Jack's you are gonna be very limited, have you heard The Kills? they used an Akai MPC60 and recently and MPC4000 those are expensive but you can try a cheaper model MPC500 or MPC1000 also de XR20 looks like a good option

Yeah I've listened to The Kills quite a bit. Love Midnight Boom. Great album. Like I said, we're just seeing what's out there, messing around, trying to find a sound we like before we dig in too deep. Thanks for all the advice!

i couldnt help but thinking about this drum machine and wondering if the influence of the Kills didnt inspire their use of it

thats what i was thinking but i really wasnt confident enough about that idea to make a full fledged statement to that effect

as it is i am getting a little more confident about my opinions when it comes to 'electronics oriented music' but thats slow goin

the 'friends electric' piece blew up my brain when i heard it live given what a huge Numan fan i have been and i knew that keys have always been one of Jacks things but the art of the drum machine as art as opposed to craft has always been Eno for me

right now should be an interesting time for Jack when making decisions on these components as he plans his tour and its scope

but the bentley rythm ace he has chosen does seem slightly limited in my opinion, might sound a bit samey after a while... just an opinion, of course.

it would definitely be interesting if JW decided to tour this album one-man band style^^ but thats another story altogether...

definately, i actually enjoyed watching the exact opposite - Jack doing "you just cant win" without being behind a guitar.

defiantly speaking (inside joke about how your computer and mine like to force us to write definitely differently)

i have always been a huge fan of jacks drum attack even though i think he can easily go overboard if he doesnt play a little daily to expend all that force evenly

its like my pool shark days when i would work a mural all day and then blow the balls off the table because my english was off
