When i first heard the 626 it reminded me of my first casiotone keyboard. cheesey PCM sounds, YUCK! However, with the wisdom of two years more in the music world I don't think it is a bad machine at all. The sounds for all their low fidelity are quite warm and thick, very good for hip-hop beatmaking and I'm not the only one who thinks so...

User interface is simple enough to use. It took me a few nights of playing around with the thing to fully get it (no manual) but now it's very easy to program.

As fate would have it, I own a Juno-60, whose arpeggiator the 626 can control via the trig out jack to arp clock in(you control triggers with the rimshot, so you can create neat syncopated patterns that are beyond the Juno's simple controls, just program the rimshot notes on the box's screen)

You can also do quite a bit of syncronizing with MIDI and to other sequencers. I use my 626 as a tempo control (via tape sync) for my MSQ 700, whose internal clock is not well.

Currently I run the sucker through my Moog's filter and get some damn good sounds. Keep in mind, lots of rear jacks, tuneable sounds, good accent/shuffle/flam controls, and heck, it's CHEAP.

Gotta love the old TR series by Roland. We got ours in 1986 when my brother was well into learning keyboards on this crappy old piano sized brick shithouse... The TR-626 was definately the best part of that setup, later becoming part of my retro-collection. MIDI implementation is way-cool, and those 10 seperate outs often find there was routed through a Boss DD-3 guitar delay effects pedal, especially the Kick#2 and Bassdrums.... The ability to tune each instrument is nice.. You can tune up, or tune down the entire set for some nice 'housy' sounds.. Or add some delay/reverb and flanger effects for that nice ambient loop...

Sadly the sounds are 'shit school digital' but when used creatively that can be the best part of this machine... Looks damn sexy too!
