Got it two days ago and I can't say enough good things about this synth. It is VERY VERY good for lead sounds and bass lines. It can be very agressive or rather laid back. Definatly a keeper in my studio. If you want some agressive ANALOG (not Virtual Analog), an awsome sequencer, and all for around $600 used or $777 new (with a waiting list of course), then this is the synth for you. I don't think I will ever get bored of it, or rid of it.

Geez. This thing is blowing my mind. Of course I've never owned anything like this. I played a guitar for a year or so back when I was 15... Now I'm 22 and after boring myself to death with computer animation I got this machine on a whim and must say I think it's changing my life or something. I finally found something I really like doing, should have taken a hint from the fact that everyone in my family is a musician... Anyhow, i love all kinds of music, especially experimental electronica and this thing satisfys me to my hearts content. What a great piece of work.

Highly Recommended

I bought the FR-777 just for the looks of it. It's a very beautiful machine. Compact yet elegant. I couldn't resist it when I found a used one for the right price (around 650 USD). Then I plugged it in to my studio and discovered that it not only looked great, it sounded great too!

The FR-777 is the kind of machine that can do nice clean sounds as long as you want it to. And I consider everything that a TB-303 can do as clean. But what if you start growing horns in your forehead? Well, then the 777 will turn wicked together with you! You push the overdrive to the max, fiddle with the cutoff all in the warp-mode and before you know it you're playing synthesizer with the Devil!

The 777 is all analog and still I feel I have full control over it via MIDI. That is another great thing about the 777. It's a new synth with an old school sound. And if you don't feel like walking down the MIDI path, it has a fantastic built in sequencer that will keep you occupied for hours on end.

So, summing it all up; if you are looking for an analog monophonic synth that you won't grow tired of after a week or so, keep an eye out for the 777. It will grow together with you.

I will NEVER part with mine.

got mixed emotions about this unit...

i wanted the 303 sound, i didnt quite get it. i thought the modulation capabilities would be a plus, tweaked it to death, put it on the back stove.

it seems like it had a problem with phase cancelation when using both oscs.

all in all, an ok sequencer, good acid/ raw analog sound, lacks midi and a little expensive.

Jered is cool for sure.
