OK it was the first piece i ever bought (for 500 DM!) ... i've had it for around 10 months and sold it because there are only 15 12-bit sounds, the display was partially broken and it locked up on midi sync as a master unit after a while so it was useless for me. i think the midi syncing problem is caused by the 1.0 system rom (used until ser.no 533400 ?). Pro's: 10 individual outs, easy-to-use 16-step sequencer with 64 patterns in 4 banks and 4 songs (without m-64 c ram cartridge, which added 2 or 3 songs),din-24 sync,tape interface, lovely rim shot and ride cymbal Con's: wobbly plastic case and buttons, 12-bit samples, only 1 drumkit, if the display gets damaged you can just pray to find another one (like me) just mail me if you want to know how program it (as long as i remember it)

well guys... I love it... here is why:

the rim has a 5volt out... you if you make your own drum synths like I do.. you can use that 5volt out in the rim to control your intriment VIA midi... next.. there are a couple old analog guitar petals that you can sit between your bass drum and mixer to give it whatever you need... it is a CHEAP 16 step programmer.. it is a CHEAP instant- tempo controller for your programs.. I like having mine hooked up just so I have a knob to twist and change tempo

It looks like a Star Wars toy...nice and plastic like my old

x-wing fighter...but it does have many good points....such as...

the big matrix grid that shows where all the drum sounds are

programmed

the sliders to control the volume of each sound (some sliders control

two sounds)

the ind. outs...the ability to control the tempo of din &amp; midi

at the same time....the rim shot, ride, hihats, toms, clap, and

tambourine are all cool....

Fairly limited sounds - toms, ride and crash are all the same as the 909 tho. Indy outs make up for it tho. Bass drum and snares bit crappy. Good for syncing other things tho - MIDI and DIN simultaneously. Good beginners machine I reckon.

the 707 is great because it is easy to use, but the insturments are kind of limited for jungle, hardcore, and breaks since the insturments all sound reletivly etnic.

but it sounds roland-y and the snares kick ass. oh. wait a minute. oh yeah, it'l break if it's seconed-hand or old and the buttons get stuck.both happened to mine.
