I bought mine waaaay back in 1992 as a replacement for an 808 I had. Back then I was into digital sounds in a big way.. Nowdays I use it for it's handclap, which suits the retro dance I'm currently working on, some of it's percusssion and the hats.

For those with something like a Juno 60, this machine has a ASSIGNABLE trigger out which when hooked up to the Juno's arpeggiator, could be used to make all sorts of stuff, like bass lines and triggers. I agree with those who say they need the manual, but I think I have one SOMEWHERE, I'll look into it...

Yea! I use the R100 for my electronic dance music. I use the step sequencer to sequence the 16 sounds which this machine emits. I play the sounds very load! Oh by the way, I am spining this thursday at Bradley Pub in downtown Devonsburgshire upon Edinbourgh brook, it's just two blocks from the brook. 50p lagers all night! Cheers Mates!!!!

Does anyone know about the soundset expantion chips?

Oh. This thing kicks ass by the way! You could use it as a battering ram if you want.

I have the r-100 and it's a nice piece of equipment but I'd like to sell it since I have all new drum moduals. Make me an offer guys. I bought it for 800 bucks back in the late 80s.

I bought this in the 80's for $800. It was one of the first drum machines that were more than 8 bit. For the time it sounded good. It had some naturalness to it and not just a synthetic sound. However, this drum machine has a glaring proble. It just does not have enough memory. For the time it was good but they pale in comparision to the 16 and 20 bit machines. For its time, I give it four of five stars. The one minus for lack of memory. you just couldn't program too many songs or patterns, or even complex patterns with alot of layers. It has a great biuld and nice pan and tunable features as well as changing the characteristics of particular instruments. The close high hat was not annoying like the ones on the old Korgs. there are also many outputs so that you can take a sound from one of three banks to one of the corresponding 8 outputs to record or put effects on a single instrument. That in itself is valuable. My new Boss Dr-770 only has 1 assignable output. But by today's standards I don't see why someone would want to own one due to the memory limitations.
