By no means the newest piece of technology, but a monster for gritty 12-Bit sounds. Dark and powerful with a excellent hi-hat and some sleazy percussion (I mean that in a good way). The snares are vaguely reminiscent of a TR707, and the kicks, in their gated glory, win me over every time. Better yet, the user interface, while about as advanced as your average pocket calculator, is a pleasure. If that Gothic 80's drum sound is your desire, this machine is your ticket.

Comments About the Sounds:
Dark sounding drums but very powerful

(Thanks to A. Payne for this info.)
