This blows away the linn drum. Of course I've never liked the linn drum so take that as my opinion only. I've got two drumtraks loaded with different sounds and I'll never get rid of 'em. I've also got the OB-prommer that lets you burn your own sounds. The stock kit is amazing if you know what you are doing. No-one is using that kick sound right now and it is deep and very eq'able. These are going up in price so expect to pay over $225 for one now-adays. My only gripe is no MIDI through so they have to be at the end of the chain. Also, even though it was my only drum machine for a long time I don't suggest it be the only drum source.

Not as nice as the LinnDrum (in my opinion), but similar sounds and method of beat creation. I just wish there were dedicated tuning and volume knobs for each of the sounds. Cool for electro and old school hip hop, but the sounds are not the ones usually associated with techno or house. Excellent when used creatively....

Oh, the numbered keys on mine seem to be faulty. I'll have to fix that soon, but it may be something to watch out for if you're looking to pick a Drumtraks up.

My room mate just recently purchased this rhythm unit,and we havn't put it to the test yet.I will have results on it's midi performance,how tweekable it's twelve sounds are,also how it works in conjunction with our Ensoniq samplers,and my amazing analoge filtered Ensoniq sq1/plus32.Laugh if you want, but with it's multi wave bit waveforms,transwaves,30 res filters,,easy real time editing and filtering control,three envelopes per voice,while each sound can have three combined waveforms,with three seperate lfo settings,three res filters with three different start indexes. These can all be sent togather to one control wheel or the pitch,mod,slider A,foot switch,velocity,and after touch can control any filter ,envelope,lfo,effects centers,effects change or any of the other hundred modulations effecting only the chosen waveform within the voice. With it's stair step free sounds(thanks to moog and their 32 bit digital sounds with analoge filtering),repeating ramps that can be controled by an internal or external clock, thick sub-bass,machine like tr waves and multi waves,erie sonic scapes,user friendly sixteen track sequencer that lets you cut and paste sections of seperate track andsequences wherever you please.Punch in at any point,not even on the exact bar,beat,or measure,and it cuts it . You can then ad a piece of another beat to fill in the empty measure in the beginning,and then loops it -perfectly every time. This synth,with the sh101 ,Arp and sampler,makes for a perfect jungle setup.

Damn is this thing cool, not exactly good for techno, but it is great for trance, tribal and other such slower things. It is 8 bit samples, but they still don't sound like drums. This machine is very orbital esq, when you start using it you will notice that, I think 150 for the steet value is a bit underated (although i got mien for 100). I have mostly been seeing these things gong for about 250-400 dollars. If you find one of these beasts pick it up, especially if you do trance, its nice to have as an additional sounds. This is no toy, it is qorth and often looked over because of the 808 and 909's popularity, soon these and Linns which were the top of the line are going to be sought after again, take one now before the overpricing monster snatches this classic away from your budget as well.
