this thing that is fun to call a "tr-707" is good to have on your lap, while your watching TV, with some headphones plugged into it. but I have to admit it is only about 70% certified munkeliek. other then that it is just a fun time. for a hundred bucks you can't afford not to have one, but I don't recommend plugging it into an amp, ooh that sounds bad. the digital acoustic samples or whatever are only nice in theory. but once they become audible they sound trebley, thin and tinny. it is however, nice to listen to all the drums going on every beat, and mix it up with some accents...then you just turn down and up the volumes of each sound and listen to the timbre of the cocophony change. I agree with the guy who says this thing need FX and one more thing, this box really sounds like a box. if you want drums find a freind, or mic yourself wacking some cereal boxes, and pan lids. ... "the clap is peppy"... you betcha!!

I found that the 707 kicks all th eother Roland drummachines arses, you just have to run it through some sort of effects pedal!!! That adds up to about $200 for a drummachine that kicks 808's and 909's arses!! That saved me about $800!

Picked up one of these for $70 along with the manual. I find this is a good drum machine,easy to program,all those individual outs, and the fact it has midi and din sync cotrol.For the kick drum I run it thru a bass eq pedal does a good job on beefin up the sound. Since I've come across a MC 4 this is a valuable piece of equipment to me,and after reading the other reviews I'm going to see if you can run a midi device and the din sync at the same time.

Sorted! Had mine from second-hand for nearly ten years and it's the business. It's like a missing link between MIDI and Sync 24 stuff so you can run your computer and your 101 or 303 or whatever at the same time and the bugger even haS SMPTE sync so that you can sync it to picture - great for soundtrAck work! The sounds can get on your nerves after a while so i trigger my Alesis D4 from the seperate outs - loads of kits. I don't care if it isn't fashinable - buy one if you can!

I just bought the machine for NZ$140 which I think is quite a good deal as it is in mint condition... However I have doubts about the power adapter.. 500ma? anyway is there anybody out there who has a manual on-line cause I'm kinda stuck... I can erase tracks and stuff but I am having difficulties enterting notes etc.. cool
