Definately a very cool drum machine from the early 80's The sounds are very 80's pop (Think Prince, Madonna, ect.) And it was also used in early hip hop and electro (NWA ect.) All the sounds are tuneable either by opening it up and adjusting the pots inside, or by using the CV in-puts on the back. There are also triger in-puts for each sound, which makes this pre-midi machine a bit more useful. Although it would be a shame not to use the internal sequencer which is awesome. You can clock the sequencer via a clock in-put on the back. In short, this is a very cool machine, and can add some more interesting sounds to a 909 world! I wouldn't make it my only drum machine though but at $150 its worth it just for one sound!
