The 727 is the coolest...I use it as master clock to keep an MC-202 midi synced and it never falters...Definitely needs just a tad of reverb to keep it from sounding too cheesy (as if there was such a thing!)...I use the extra individual outputs (from the star chime, quijada, and whistles) to trigger a tama analogue drum brain...this thing has ton's of outputs, so it's perfect for it...Roland should have given it some cymbals and a kick and snare like the 626, but used with another drum box, it's a great addition...and the individual level sliders are the GREATEST thing for playing live...I recommend picking one of these or a 707 up just for that...I'd easily pay $150 for one...hurry up, the 707 and 727 are gonna be the next Roland 'must-haves' and people are going to try to get tons of cash for them.

I finally got another one. I think these are great. It's a keeper. Will definatly liven up a good techno track. Run a semi-fast quijada & short whistle sequence with a ruff bangin' acid track. Makes for a better sound. The whistes can be a bit over powering at times, thanks god for the indi volume sliders.

At first listen I wasn't too impressed by the sounds. The bass is extremely weak. The whistles and shaker-type sounds are nice. The fact that you've got a ton of outs means that you can run any of these sounds through its own effects box. Get a Boss Chorus pedal to run the crispy high-end sounds through. I was disappointed by the sounds but after you get it hooked into your midi lab and run some sequences with it, you see that this machine really has kind of cold, mechanical charm that's very nice for dance or electronic music, or even to break up the wobblyness of your stupid rock band. I like this one and may buy another or at least a 707. I have lent mine to a very needy starving musician friend. I don't have the heart to take it back; he is so desperate!
