Picked one up for $300 a couple of days ago second hand. Expected the thing to be white, never knew they'd be silver.

I am truly blown away by the sounds, it's a brilliant synth part on it ( I read the person who said to glue the synth mute button down and for the life of me I don't know what the hell they're talking about).

If you can pick one of these up for $500 or less don't hesitate. The filters are just quite outstanding and it's layout is pretty remarkable.

Very cool, simple as that.

I love it! It's actually programmable unlike a lot of these new drumboxes out nowadays, and it sound great. The synth engine leaves a bit to desired; I play the synth part from another keyboard because the 303 style sequencing gets on my nerves when I have the melody in my head and I have to fumble with thi gate time etc. shit. Fully expanded you get 3 synths in total, curiously I can't get one to work via midi, but I'm new to all this shit... The drums are excellent: all the 909/808/606 stuff and the congos and toms are *EXCELLENT* for any drum machine I've seen. With a little bit of EQ of course everything is much punchier..I'm glad I didn't sell my old guitar amp...just turn up the gain and tweak the EQ and book are flying off the shelves! Every drum sound is totally tweakable, so if you don't like the presets, MAKE YOUR OWN!!! Only complaint is that the preset patterns make the machine look like a piece of shit, who the hell at quaimidi programmed this thing?! 5 Outta 5..peace

I just bagged on one these direct from Quasimidi USA (941-945-8672) for $899 (this includes all the expansion modules too!!!!). I LOVE it! Five independent synths (BD, SD, HH, Perc, Synth) all transmit data (CC's included, even Cut Freq and Res!!!!) on their own midi channel. I'm using it as a sound module and beat the shit out of it with those CC's!! - it handles supreme. Don't listen to the analog purists either about the sounds... it sounds great!!! I highly suggest external eq and compression for the BD - but what unit doesn't need this? Quasimidi has sold 1000's of these overseas, but sadly the USA is slow to catch on the music the 309 supports. Screw' em, I'll be one of the the few... !!HIGH MARKS ON THIS BOX!!

super easy interface and the sounds are slammin. i beleive this box is going for like $700-900 if you order direct from quasimidi. and that's with all 3 expansions. the 16-step drumgrid sequencer is a must(at least for me) it is soo easy to just lay down your ideas then and there. the EQ-frequency controls along with the bass boost feature make it complete for me, i think those features are what make it soo punchy and authentic sounding you can REALLY tweak these sounds. if you could only import your own wav.'s into the percussion track it would be PERFECT but what's "perfect" anymore? this thing goes great with a clavia nord lead, or a future retro777 if you like acid i wanna check out the Korg Electribe - A synth seems they would make a good pair. props to quasimidi.
