Picked one up the other day for £80 and its certainly useful. The individual voulume sliders and outs are a great ideas for routing to ext fx.. Looks fantastically 'old scholl' and adds alot to my existing set up - Korg ES1 and ER1.

I use the 727 as a master clock for my MIDI drum machine and my DinSync MC202 ++ PLUS it triggers my arpeggiating JU6...I've never heard its sounds...This machine is very important to my system...Did I mention that I've never heard what it actually sounds like.

Sweet machine. Great sounds considering they're samples, even better with fx! Mainly picked it up for the DYN-Sync to Midi converter capability and I love it! Controls are a tad bit quirky=ier than your average Drum machine, but easily learned. The only bad thing I have to say about is that you can't recieve midi and send dyn at the same time! It's able recieve only one at a time OR send both simultaneously. Not too bad that way to use as a master control, but a little tedious when syncing a wide variety of synths at once.

Although the TR-727 isn't analog and it doens't even have any typical drum sounds, the latin percussion sounds are great if that's what you're looking for. Several nice features make this all you need for congas and bongos. Flam, shuffle, individual level sliders, all the usual TR-programming features. Sounds great for additional percussion with another drumbox and will spice up any house track. Run it through a phaser/flanger/chorus and it'll liven up your techno. If used as a master clock, you can sync your 303, 606 or 808. If you find one cheap and want to add a little extra groove to your tunes pick it up.

Just bought mine for 100us. What a great machine! Although i didn't know how to use all the controls, Roland got me the manual a day after I bought the unit! After that I was up and running. Excellent beginners drum machine. Cheap and fun to use. The volume sliders are a god send because some of the whistles and etc. can be overpowering at times. Great display lets you see exactly what your doing. I recommend the 727 for anybody looking for a few things to spice up a house or tribal track. Can't wait to get the 707. For the money you can't go wrong.
