I am only 12 so it took me a while to work out how to use it, but I found it under our house. Now I use it quite regularly and find its sounds quite cool. Shame that it only has like african sort of drums

I was psyched when I got mine, and for a while it was the master of my midi rig. the original sounds are a little disapointing and tinny. I run it through a few effects modules but it still doesn't have the punch of the TR-626 which has (almost?) all the same sounds (I think it has the sounds of the 707 & 727). With the 626 you can adjust the pitch of each individual sound. the 727 has the classic and much loved 909/808 style interface. and the individual volume sliders are nice.

The only physical problems with mine deal with power. The power cord connection at the back of the machine is iffy. push it in too far and no power pull it out too far no power. I once had it blink out on me too. which sucked casue at the time it was set as the midi master. (it also erased all the patterens that were on it, but I don't care cause it is so easy to use that I have always just programed patterns live.) Now I have it slaved to a sequencer/drum machine so if it wiggs out again no big deal.

I have both the 626 and 727 and while both of their original sounds are way past getting old they are great additions to a midi setup.

I just cleaned out my studio and found my Roland TR-727. I cannot find the manual. Does anyone know where I can download a cop of it? Thanks, Helmut

the sounds when distorted sound like aphex twin hard techno. this is a great roland box with interesting, useful sounds (for the most part- the chime blows though). with lots of efx this machine can do wonders, you would be surprised how a little reverb or distortion completely changes the sound of this machine. also the baby blue gives it a cool look. useful to sync machines of today with the machines of yesteryear like the 707 but with sounds that are actually useful! i recommend it highly.
