Forget about the 909. The Roland TR707 and 727 are the ultimate Chicago House drum machines. 64 patterns, 998 bars, step edit whilst you play the sequence, a nice big display that shows you the entire pattern in one single view (note: it is a shame it has no backlight), trigger output, din-sync in/out, midi (-sync) in and out, shuffle and flam... All in all, more than enough to satisfy your drum-sequencing needs. The 707’s 15 drum sounds are too cool to ignore. Nice and punchy bassdrums and snaredrums and a set of gritty hi-hats, funky rides and ear crushing crash cymbals… The samples in this budget machine rock beyond believe. Add the 727 to your 707 and you’ll be jacking it latino style like Mario ‘Smoking’ Diaz or playing it as smooth as Mr. Fingers with 15 more percussion sounds. Better get a big mixer if you are one of those control freaks; almost every sound has it’s own individual output… But then again… why bother? The volume sliders for each sound give you enough control, so you might as well use the stereo output. But hey, atleast you have a choice!more
