707 is okay,...... I mean for that price [150 DM] You won´t find a machine with this functional step-sequencer and the MIDI/Din-option + the indiv-outs. You can´t compare it to 808 or 909, it´s sounds are typical plastic-80ies style,.. but it sounds like what it is: a digital drumcomputer. I like the HI Hats and claps of it very much. You can use the Indiv.outs for trigger analogue drum brains like TAMA TECHSTAR or SIMMONS DRUMS.

greetings blue.

++ ++ Check it out. If you want to become the type who can program a drumtrack on the fly over existing vinyl or other live stuff, this thing is great. I just get some sequences going and slam some claps, rides, and rims out of it If you have some distortion or compression or somethin you can Richie-Hawtin all over the phuckin place when you're playin live for a while until you get a real 909 (a long way off for me) = ) I think it's worth it. If you combined a TR-707 and a Korg ER-1 you can fully crank out live drumloop mayhem.

Mine's photo copied, I'll make a copy of the manual for you if you need it -- just email me..

I still love my littlel lame-o 707, it sits snuggly between my 808 and DMX, get's used once in a blue moon for those crazzy disco hihats, but the bass drum argh! (really short "thonk" sound" and the super 80's snares just don't cut it for me. Step programming is cool, the sync24/midi setup is also a godsend to those without a roland msq to convert midi to sync24. I'd have to say this is the best drum machine you can get for $100, unless an oberheim DMX, or DX is available for that price.

4 marks -- dated uneditable sounds, good ui, plastic construction.

I picked this drum machine up as a compliment to the rest of my equipment (The Korg ER-1 and EA-1) for $120. What can I say? Its a Roland x0x. Sure, the samples aren't the best in the world, but you get individual outs, just patch some freaking cheapass reverb or fx on em and youve got a great machine. Retardedly simple sequencing, lots of memory (expandable too), REALLY reliable, great lcd matrix display for reviewing what you're composing, syncable to din or midi.

What more can you ask for in a simple cheap drum machine? It may not be an 808 or a 909, but it gets the 4 out of 5 for doing everything it was made to do perfectly.
