Bottom line.. This is a box which has great sounds that can fill a myriad of genres. It has great control and a solid construction. It does a great job emulating the TB303, but that's less than 1% of its potential. At least it will save you from spending another $1000 on a TB303 and the pain of midi modification.

Ah, yes! The triple 7 threat! Two things which need to be said: BELIEVE THE HYPE! and GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT. I was lucky to get this baby from a music dealer up North near San Francisco for $550!!!! And is dead mint. I've been wanting one of these since they first came out with the purple-faced ones! I've just never got around to saving for it. I'd save up and then end up buying something else. And was lucky enough to see it on the music store web site and snatched it up with a down payment.

This thing is incredible. I mean, I'll admit it. The first sound I wanted to hear was that fabled you-know-what acid sound. I mean, c'mon. I couldn't resist, I mean that's what it is famous for. And it does it wondefully. I mean I'm listening to the speakers and it's just burbling and growling that caustic bassline, but doesn't look like a TB. What I mean is, it's like the 777 becomes possessed! Or becomes incarnated by the silver box. Your thinking to yourself, "It isn't emulating acid. It IS acid!"

But what makes the 777 so wonderful, is that is just a small color of this synths palette. I mean it's exactly like everyone says, "Yeah, it does that, but much more!" I mean from kicks to 808-ish snares, hats, to FM-like hits and a lot of analog in between.

It's programming is very simple, sorta like the Korg EA-1 Electribe step-write, without the keyboard-triggering mode. You just enter where you want the notes and enter the pitch up or down for the notes with accents or slides. And with MIDI supported on the 777, you could hook it up to a keyboard and trigger sounds that way.

I've know I've only scratched the surface with this thing, but so far I'm extremely impressed. Finally, a company comes along and with a product pure and true. Thanks, Jared.

I am so happy. Now I can die. Jered is the freakin man! This thing has quality all over it. It looks like it was manufactured by some big corporation. I mean, its sturdier than gear that's out now. The knobs are smooth and buttery. And it's 100% analog. I have 1.00, and will be getting the new update so I could get those flashing leds.

My first bit of analog kit and a good introduction into it, at that. Wonderful bass and endless "noise" possibilities. Now if I could only afford a MiniMoog...

777 critics & innovators et al. Hmmm...I cannot understand any negative criticism on an original instrument such as this one. Especially since it's so fully capable of amazing sound and tweakability, not to mention well endowed in connectors. 777 is quite highly capable of creations that innovate. Are you innovative, or are you a critic? A rhetorical question, really, since I don't care. Nevertheless, the point is, that for the truly positive minded artist with ingenuity and mad music skill, a 777 is straight bomb!!! Buy one for any reason, even if you just want to play for fun (and this is the best reason of all.) Love the sound.
