This is a fantastic synthesizer, that has many creation possibilities. I've heard people say it doesnt fit too well in the mix, which sometimes can be the case but with a bit of tweaking its no bother to get it to sit well. The pitch control for the oscillators is a little too sensitive and it needs to be retuned virtually everytime its turned on, which is a pain. The overdrive I feel is a bit shite but you can always use an external distortion device which does the job. Theres plenty of hands on action with this thing and you can create some evil sounds as well as the tb303 burbles. So..... The question you all want to know is does it sound like a 303? Well its the closest sounding clone i've ever heard but i'd describe the fr 777 as sounding more "grainy" for want of a better word. You can particularly tell in the higher pitched sounds. This unit is the 303 for the 21st century, although it doesnt clone the sound identically in every way, it kicks out its own cult sound and it certainly is acid!!! When you consider that most 303's are over 20 years old, have had a total hammering and dont have midi, the fr 777 is certainly more appealing. I initially bought a 303 from a shop that turned out to be faulty, so i had a refund which I purchased my 777 with. Rest assured im not dissapointed

Very nice machine. Intuitive and fun to play. The build quality could be better but perhaps they are working on that. The button on mine fell off and had to be glue back on and the display screen has come off twice. Still i like the 777 a lot, but im not sure if id buy it again. Its a bit pricey for what it is.

I wish I was a better musician because this thing is the sweetest thing, whenever I think I get bored with the sound, bammmo a new noise burps out of it, sweet for anything you can put your imagination to. It'd been awesome if you could record knob movements, but goddamn Future Retro is a kick ass company. :)

I hope they make many more synthesizers!

I`ve had this one for about 6 months now. I think it still rocks! Things get really interesting when you run this unit through different distortions and filters. Anything sounds good with these combinations. I love it!

very impressive true analog synth, great for basslines. can't beat the price of a used one (around $600) they just stopped making new ones so the prices will probably jump up. if thats the case i'm not sure its worth more than $800, there are some better new underground analog synths out there worth checking out.
