A drum mixers (or simply drum mixers) is one of two kinds of rotating drum mixer; the other is a counter-rotating drum mixer. A non-rotating drum mixer (or simply a tilting drum mixer) is a kind of fixed mixer that creates concrete in single feeds. The drum rotates around an axis as material is loaded into the drum at one end and exits through a release chute on the other end. On a tilting drum mixer, the drum is manually angled to feed the material from the drum feeder to the drum molds in a desired angle.
What is the Difference Between a Drum Mixer?
Both drum mixers come in two major types: tilting and counter-rotating. While both machines have similar functions, their differences lie in the way they operate and the ways in which they produce music. A tilting drum mixer is usually equipped with two drums, one fixed and the other mobile. The fixed drum mixer is usually equipped with two rotors that tilt, so the drum material can be fed into both drums simultaneously. On the other hand, a counter-rotating drum mixer has a fixed drum, as well as two rotating drums. These drums can rotate in opposite directions, thereby counterbalancing the effects of each drum, thus producing a wider range of sound.
Tumbling drums can be used in a variety of music genres, from jazz to rock and roll and from classical to modern music. Drum mixers with tumbling drums are perfect for drum majors and DJs who require a wide spectrum of sounds, but who also want to be able to slow down or speed up the songs they play. Drum mixers with random access mode allow users to experiment with different sound patterns and drum patterns without needing additional software. A great feature to consider when purchasing a drum mixer is whether it has a USB interface so that a user can connect it directly to the computer.
