this drum machine rocks!You have everything you need in a basic drumbox here except sampling (the sounds ARE rom samples). The 808 and 909 stuff is cool, (and extensive) editing parameters are there,. of course, but the new snares and kicks are even more useful and the cr 78 stuff is awesome. Even has a TR 55 click!!(Forget about any bass or synth sounds- 5 lame basses) Really if you know what you are doing you will want this thing. Tapping out rhythms is funner then step time programming and these pads make it easy.Save your expensive keyboard from being hammered on-use this instead. Also a large user memory allows very complex songs- programming 100's of d'nb beat variations at 175 bpm is no sweat Preprogrammed beats are unusual and varied -alot of ethnic flavor and rock beats , get a dr 202 if you only want preset hip hop or dance beats!That being said,I programmed my first convincing d'nb beats with it but It gets real hot when you use it over a 1/2 hour I hope it doesnt break.

sounds good, programs good, 400 FARKIN USER PATTERNS!!!! GOOD GOD! if they would have added more indi-outs.. it would be perfect. but maybe that's gonna be the dr880. anywayz.. the lack of indi-outs is a small price to pay considering how much memory and quality of rom samples you get with this.

Well, I like the Blue color alot, would look pretty cool on top of my Jp8000, sittin in that lil nook. The first thing i do when i find a new beatbox to fiddle with is go straight to the Tr-909 sets. The 770 has about 10 of em if i remember right..sooo many sets..whatcha gonna do with all of em? anyway they all sounds GREAT. definatly a big improvement over the 660..will get one soon!
