This machine can drive all the retro gear, and has a good interface, that I can program and send to my synth/sampler/sequencer. I give it a 5 just for the syncablility, and interface. The sounds do sound bad though. Probally the worste sounding machine I've ever heard.

The exact reason I got this box. The interface, and the fact that it can drive just about anything. The sounds do sound bad.It's probally the worst sounding machine I've ever heard. However, I can program it, and output the steps to my sequencer or drive my synth/sampler. I give it a 5 because it can sync all the retro stuff and keep it in time with MIDI.

The TR707 was my first drum machine and I really liked it. Individual outputs were very useful, Its matrix sequencer was easy to use. This is a machine of past and to the past it belongs. In a world full of 20 and 24 bits A/D/A's who needs 16 lo fi samples??

While (almost) everybody else seem to dislike this drummachine, I like it! I'm into hard, distorted music, and you can get some really nice sounds from this machine if you treat'em a bit. The clap sounds REALLY cool thru heavy distortion (and a noisegate before dist). If you EQ the hihats (more high, less low) they start sounding like heavily compressed&gated 909 hats! Also, the cowbell sounds cool distorted, and the clean rimshot, dist toms, ride... Although you could sample the sounds with your sampler I find the dead-easy sequencer and 10 ind outs much more intuitive. This machine is also a good syncing box, as it can be a MIDI&sync master. You can use the rimshot trigger to trig your SH-101 clock or whatever you like.
