Hm...there are some very bad comments on this machine...I truly don´t understand this!!!! I use this machine for professional studio-use and I never heard a better kicking bass-drum!!!This baby has 10 outs..so connect them and show what you are able to on your mixing desk...this box really doublbasses your walls to pieces!!! I perform metal (o.k. if you are performing techno,drum´n bass or other shit...don´t buy it!)and the bass drum,the snare,hi-Hat and Ride are really sounding very good..! It would be hard to miss this box...!

This box is great. I really don't understand why most people shove this to the side. Okay, so out of the box it's not perfect, but all you gotta do is invest in an effects unit/pedal or two and this box is great. Very easy to program. Even with out the individual sliders like that on the 727/707, you can still control the levels while it's playing. Along with that, you can also tune while playing. All-in-all, it's great. Just give it a chance and throw an envelope filter on the bass drum. Then you're ready to pound.

Paid DFL. 125,- ($60) for it. It came with an original Boss adapter, that costs about $30 here, so the drummachine actually cost me a mere $30! I'm a guitarist and use it only as an advanced metronome. I do know what good drumcomputers sound like and I'm affraid this isn't one of them. I also found it quite annoying how hard it is to program a pattern or sequence that actually sounds like, let's say, Lamb. But that maybe my inexperience. ;-) However, if you spend more than 1 hour programming it, you will reach the limit of it's abilities (unless you're really stupid that is ;-) ) In general the programming itself is pretty straightforward, so it surves the purpose well and for that price, who's complaining?! Very recommendable if you need a cheap, standard rythm that really improves you guitar-playing!

Has a great selection of sounds actually...incredible cymbals, and the kick and snare can be easily tweaked with a graphic eq so that they sound much better...a little reverb definitely helps too...This machine has a few features that the 727 doesn't...you can pitch the sounds up and down, and the 727 has only latin sounds, some rather useless like 3 whistles and a chime...626 however does NOT have the individual level sliders (which are an incredible feature) and the display only shows the 16 step grid for one sound at a time, instead of all at once...and it's midi only, no din sync...i used it for awhile as a 16 step sequencer for a PAiA Fatman...definitely don't pay more than $100 dollars for one
