Very easy to use compared to most equipment these days, and comes with an envitronment for Logic, and mixermap for Cubase. Manual is very easy to understand and nice and small.
Superb sound quality, Kick, Snare, Clap, Stick, lo and high tom, are all analogue and have, and have all the usual controlls expected of an analogue machine and more, the last three sohnds are all 8 bit samples that can be passed through a 12db per octave high and lo pass analogue filter making for good sound shaping. The samples include a 808 cowbell ride cymbal a cr78 sound 909 hats 808 hats and a couple of jomox samples. The Rack is of good solid Build and is quite heavy it has midi in out and through on the back, 10 outputs and also a L&R out, All outputs are quater inch jacks and give out a pro+4dbu level. Also inluded are two lfos which can be swiched through variose waveforms and routed to many paramiters of the sounds, such as the cutoff on the hats ore the tune on the kick or toms. There is plenty of RAM on board and also a ROM with about 256 preset settings which can be edited or copied to RAM when creating your own settings.
Very Robust only has two dials and a few buttons on the front, have used it allot since i got it about a year and a half ago.
Like this machine allot, definatly a bargain for the price compared to the price of vintage machine of simalir quality. I reckon this machine is a future classic and can blow all the others away for pure quality of sound. will not be selling this

The technology used is analog synthesis for 4 instruments (kick, snare, low tom and high tom) and playing samples from 909/808/CR78 and "acoustic" for other instruments (hats / clap / rim / / cym / crash).
The rack also offers two LFOs and a few dedicated functions to certain instruments and it responds to velocity (if desired), which makes it ultra versatile.
To handle unit is available with an encoder "value". Facade has 6 buttons (some backlit) and a headphone output with a dedicated volume.
The connectors are standard in terms noon (the triplet) and for audio, no surprise (not in) but each instrument may benefit from a dedicated output.
The general configuration is very simple, the machine requires only 5 to 6 minutes of thinking to understand the architecture, editing is very easy, it remains on the same set of buttons in general.
Sounds suit anyone attracted to electronic music. The machine is very open, although the impression is strong on emulations of 909 and 808, even if the recognize, it is not necessarily very close to these machines, we say that the mind is in any case.
Beware though, this rack is much more powerful than the quoted machinery, we can go much further in editing sounds, but really much further.
The sound palette of the instrument is very wide, thank you to the functions "harmonics / eq / filters / lfos etc etc.
Machine a fishing mad even the samples are super fat, I did not feel whether samples sometimes they are so powerful.
I bought yesterday on AF to a gentleman I have to thank!
I have a few other models.
What I like most: the sound, what I like least: a few dedicated knobs would have been welcome!
Yes, I do it again this choice if AC had to represent.

daril's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Huge but small details irritant"
Everything has been said
Everything has been said
I will not repeat what was said, but I regret right on this bike:
No analog snare
The separate outputs are fixed instead of a summons, but on an analog machine ca application may be bcp expensive components??
Ditto for the hi-hat filter ca was great to be able to assign any sound or even to have him in / out jacks
And finally in the words of someone for the Vermona DRM is a shame we can not play sounds at different heights, on the one you can always set the pitch but it is narrower and longer .. . otherwise it would have been as widely as possible to make bass lines with the kick, for example ...

Controllable by noon, which receives the CC, has LFO, 4 banks of 100 sounds (for the number to verify it) with three banks backups.
Editable with a utility.
I open the record for the numbers of CC messages. I pilot with a drum machine. Before that I edited from a Korg KONTROL49.
Editing with zipper is super fun on the control with the drum machine is just perfect. It is close to 888 and 999 jomox has my taste for a round compared.
It sounds very good. I sold without much regret my Vermona DRM1 mk2. The sound is slamming as expected with this type of machine. Before she had a drum station, I bought and sold jomox in its place.
I have never regretted. The drum station is good but I prefer the Jomox even if you lose the front knobs. It is easy to circumvent.
It sounds bigger, more present, just analog, electro and much of the shot.
Please note I have a TR909 next and it is not the same thing. Actually it does not replace, the feel, the groove, the myth, too, the knobs, the sequence and sound.
But it's a great complement.
I have 3 years. One of the best purchases I made. It's worth nothing and it makes good points.
I had or I still have a TR707, DX200, ESX, drum machine, Machindrum UW, Drumstation, casio RZ1, the SP12 turbo, my MV8000, the Vermona DRM1, the TR909, a MC303, TR808 tested, and Boss dr880 and DR55.
I think I have an idea of what a groove box and a drum machine and the Jomox is fine for the electro, techno, house etc etc and style related.
What I like most? price, the sound.
The least? the lack of knobs.
And of course I do it again this time a choice rather than two.

voicetrack's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
A not: prsence of the two LFO assignable on a parameter of an instrument each one.
Vraimen not need the manual, the machine has its own logic but will. Too bad we can not change the apparamen numros notes of the instruments. (Unless it is a question of OS)
Question emulation 808 and CR78, even in programman well, it was not because vraimen charley are samples so we cluck over the lifetime of the 808. The claps are also samples and a crain roulemen as a clap of that hard on a 808 then resemble a ray CD ...
So do not take a 99 Airbase to make the emulation, but to make Jomox! ! ! and a faith that has a Aquis is great because it was in the hands of a Expender of drums which has more character now. Question her, it goes much further in the edition as a true 808 or 909, there was much more heat than the vintage racks modeling and especially a big potato! ! ! One could make a quasimen pieces with nothing but a sequencer (a R5, R8, TR626, etc. Roland 505 for example have the cot matrix) and the famous rack.
Analog sounds are round and pechus, snare and kik xlente is pest.
The samples are well CRAD which adds character the machine, they have t up to the 909 in 6 of charley bit like the real, the rest is 8 bit.
on the other hand, it is not obvious to the finesse.
A breath not a problem of the snare is apparamen solved with the OS 1.15
I did not last very long but if I had known, I aurra long time. It's a terrific complete a true 808 (but does not replace absolutely not, nor is the CR78 for that matter).
It is a machine hours "couillue" that resemble auqu'un another rack full of character and Expender and opportunities.
It sounds big now.
A good big sound the Jomox!

Ludovic.gesse's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
it takes the famous are the very same 909 and 808 so it is more oriented electro
It is easy to use editing is very simple
The sounds are electro target (not necessarily realistic but it is not the goal) very powerful and fully analog (bd, sd, Hitomi, lotom) the rest of the sounds are samples
I have two months since all sounds are modifiable and it can go very very far away (your attention listen)
very good alternative to the tr 909 and 808 expensive but still counts € 800
