The Univox SR 95 is an old school drum machine consisting of a series of preset drum patterns. I believe that this is from the mid 1970's, but I don't know the exact dates of production. The SR 95 has two 1/4" outputs for both high and lo impedance, as well as a jack for a pedal. It's got it's own power cord built into it...


The Univox SR 95 has a make up that is definitely self explanatory. There are twenty different preset patterns to choose from, each with their button, and switch to choose between the top and bottom row of presets. It then gives you parameters to control the sound including a large knob for tempo, and sliders for three different percussive instruments (including tambourine). It also gives you volume and balance control. It would most likely be hard to find a manual for the SR 95, nor is one really necessary...


While Univox SR 95's sounds are definitely cheesy, for me that's the appeal of the unit. Most of the patterns are definitely going to be familiar if you've used other drum machines or keyboards with built in drum patterns, as it's got everything from waltz to rock beats. You don't have too much control over the sounds, but it's cool that you can at least mix in some percussion to vary it up a bit. What you see is really what you get here, and what you get is a series of old school sounding drum patterns (which is awesome).


I would imagine that the Univox SR 95 is a pretty hard drum machine to come by these days, but the good news is that you can get these sorts of patterns in a number of places in terms of software and other old school drum machines that might not be as hard to come by as this one. This was one of the first drum machines out there as far as I know, so it seems like these preset sounds were sort of a template for drum machines to come. Don't expect anything close to a realistic drum sound with the Univox SR 95, but for getting cheesy, old school patterns, the SR 95 is a great little tool.
