I wouldn't use the 707 for anything except as showing it off as a retro gadget at live gigs or something ... The sounds are pretty bad unless you process them a lot (in which case you'll need a lot of free input on your console), and then you'll still miss some sounds. The sequencer interface may beat a computer at times, though not in the long run. It could be used as an interface for even older hardware, or if you are new to making drum patterns, or if you're on a very tight budget ...

Hey somebody tell me I'm not crazy. I picked one of these up from a friend for $50 bucks. It has a manual, but the main mono/left out is sorta flaky, and the DC volt connector is missing the pin in the middle so I have to tape it, and not move the adapter much.Otherwise it works fine, and looks good. Perhaps I'll have a music store look at the DC connector. Now I think this is the worst sounding drum machine ever made. I have always thought so. So no I didn't buy it for the sounds. I bought it so I can sync/drive other stuff and the programming interface. I have no intentions of performing live with it. So I just need some validation.<grin> I could sync all the other Roland stuff, esp, the 808.

It's the 707!!! Or as I call it it "the poor man's 909" It's MIDIocre(sorry, bad pun) at best. I use it as my master clock so I can sync my TR-808. No other real purpose for me though. Great for affordable starter gear though.

Still looking for a good use for this thing. Not too exciting, don't go too much out of your way when getting one of these. Easy to program though.

I like the 707. The sound are crap unless you process them a lot. I patch it into the audio in of my SH-09, which works wonders. I mostly use the 707 to trigger a Drumfire module, and as a DIN bridge to other Roland X0X gear.

I got mine for $150. Worth every penny.
