Well, I just got mine two nights so I'm still figuring out how to use the thing, but these are my general thoughts on it. This thing is nice as a drum machine, has great drum sounds and can make some very nice beats (great for drum n' bass, trip hop, big beat, etc.), but the sounds or "tones" are just too dated. There are a number that are usuable and sound good (mainly the pads), but just too many of them suck. Another downside is that the preset patterns are quite awful too, they're a few that are really good but since the people at Roland programmed 'em...not the greatest intepreation of modern dance music. However, this thing has great realtime controlling, can do some great things with drums and would just jam in live performance due to the part muting. If you're gonna get it, get it second-hand, but never new, not worth the $500 some.

mc303---never owned 1,but i think i can say is when i first left rebirth and wav files on cubase and wanted to get some hardware,i listened to 1 of these and thought it sounded marvellous,,was in a shop on a big arse pa,and it sounded brilliant,,yeh ya cant tweak it,yeh its limited,but for a beginner and seeing as it costs next to nothing for something this good to take you to the next level of music making i dont think you can slate it 1 bit..all these people siad i owned it for ayear and hardly used it,why didnt you take it back then ? i admit maybe you should wait and get something a bit better,i bought a jomox airbase 99,,then a cs6x then a supernova and a 777 taken me a year or 2,,but if ya a young kid who wants to get going and all you do is a paper round at least you can get something to get you started it isnt that bad.its the idea of the machine i like,,,you can learn patterns,sounds,how to build a track so i never bought 1,,but even now with nice gear,i sometimes think,i wouldnt mind 1 just to bang out some obscure drum patterns or add alittle squelch here and there,run it thru a proccessor and make some new crazy sound,,,or even show my little bro the fundamenals of making music,,nice and simple and fun

KILLER ARPEGIATOR!!! That alone makes it worth the money IMHO. I will NEVER sell mine. Not even for more than I paid, and I have been offerred $100 more than what I paid for it.
