An underated drum machine, its somewhere between the 808 and CR-78 in sound unfortuantely none of the sounds are editable like on the 808, check analogue solutions for a mod kit! there are only 8 user patterns, but some of the presets are OK if you mute the congas! Has the standard Roland DIN sync in/out making it easy to sync to their stuff Overall a pretty nice analogue drum machine, good for ading some different anologue drum sounds to a mix, but it nothing to get to excited about!

Comments About the Sounds:
The sounds are pretty cool, although limited

(Thanks to James Malcolm for this info.)
