Awesome! This is a very cool drum machine, I wouldn't make it your only drum machine though, but it can be wicked along side an 808 or 909, all the sounds are tuneable over a very wide range!! and whats very cool about this machine is that the is a stack option witch allows the same sounds to over lap each other rather than cut them off, for example you can have to bass drums at the same time for a very full sound, or you can play a cymbal chord! it responds to velocity over midi and tuning can be changed over midi as also has a clock out, make it useful to sync older drum machines to midi at about $100, you can't go wrong with this thing, if you get one make sure you get the contemporary (electronic) cartridge from winecountry!

Comments About the Sounds:
The sounds are a bit dirty and harsh sounding, especial next to its older brother Drumtraks But that also gives TOM it's character.
