Forgotten Keys tells us that ACE-3 is a re-creation of the ACE-TONE RHYTHM ACE FR-3 analogue drum machine from the late 1960s.
A spokesperson told us, "All the internal sounds have been carefully sampled and the rhythms re-created. Some of the rhythms on the FR-3 feature accented beats which have been accurately reproduced on the ACE-3. The built-in MIDI file recorder makes exporting the built-in rhythms and playing them back from a DAW easy and gives predictable playback from anywhere in the song."
