Sounds pretty much like a low end TR707 with some latin sounds. If you like the 707 drums you can´t go wrong with the more basic 505. I like the oldschool sound of house and I think the 505 can add a cool disco feel to a track. Just experiment with eq and effects and it sounds pretty good.

I picked up mine for $20

I think this drum machine is good, if you are looking for real 80s sounds, but you dont have enough money for a linn drum or something more expensive. I vanted to buy a tr 707, and then I found the 505 for 45 euros, so I bought it cause the sounds are almost the same /the 505 has even a better kick/...there are no individual outputs:( And the memory isnt so big, but using it with a sequencer solves the problem / I couldnt figure out how to control the levels, when Im using it through midi, everything is equally loud, ??????????/ Videosex, Denis and Denis, Vince Clarke, Format A3.....

The 505 is one of the easiest drum machines I´ve ever had. I´ve used it in all songs since I have her. Very cool for electro-style.

Borrowed this off a friend, as I've been surprised by how cool this toy is. It’s real user friendly, as it really is a fantastic little midi device with an unashamed old school timing. I use this as a midi device hooked into NI battery, and though it’s no mpc pad, using it as a portable (it runs off batteries!) sequencer/drum machine is great (works well with my laptop). The internal sounds are real 80’s b-boy beat box…pure Davie-D breaks, though I’m experiencing problems with noise and latency when tapping in beats. Generally a winner if you can find it cheap, as the sounds are very usable if your into old school electro!
