HG Fortune has introduced Percumat 2 - a "versatile Rhythm machine for backing drums percussion so definitively not an 808 or 909 type thingie.".
Percumat 2 features 6 instrument parts / slots to choose from 512 inbuilt drum & percussions sounds.
here are two step sequencers: one for setting up the beat steps in groups of 4 x 8 steps (or 4 x half a bar) labeled A1, A2, B1 & B2, while the 2nd sequencers on the left allows you to control a sequence of the 8 step beat groups in 16 steps.
In addition to that there is an Auto Track Mute feature for tracks 4, 5 and 6 to have one or two tracks muted for a certain range.
The beat step sequencer does offer two additional features: StepMode and Play number of Beats i.e. Steps so you can have a 7/8, 6/8, 5/8 or even 3/8 beats while Step Mode changes the order of steps to play in jumping to every 3rd, 4th, 5th etc. step with setting at 7 steps playing the sequence backwards. This is a real playground not only for the lovers of experimental rhythms.
The unit offers 512 drum & percussion sounds in four banks which are sorted in a similar way:
