This little piece of hardware does more than what it seems it can do. You don't need more than ten minutes to realize how easy is it to make beats and songs.

You can build patterns with up to three drum kits and then change the any of the kits to get other many variations. Of course, you can control all these features using a MIDI sequencer, including the control slider which modifies pitch, volume and alters the sounds. But not everything is percussion here; you have also a bass track and many usable bass sounds.

The audio input is another nice feature. You can hook a mic or a synth/sampler directly to the drum machine.

The RT234 also has some disadvantages. The most important one is that it has no MIDI OUT, so you can't backup anything you make with the internal sequencer. Of course, you can always sample the patterns, but you lose every bit of flexibility.

Another bad point is that after a while you'll see that many of the drum kits are very alike and sometimes you have to use a whole track just to get the kick or snare you need. Once again, the solution lies in sampling the sounds you want.
