BAR of the 80's. Fifty sound samples in 16 bits 44khz (the era's must!).
The sounds are not really editable, just a detune function that should be used sparingly, but effect.
Midi in out thru, 2 stereo outputs (very good). No built-in effects.
Recording mode or not not real time.

UTILIZATION

Usage is quite simple and intuitive, the SLP has a function quickly identifiable. The only problem is the bad frequent contact with all these keys, which is disabling at the pads when you want to record in real time.
It can affect any sound any pad, then rule for each pad on the volume, pan, output (stereo 1 and 2) the pitch.
You can save 99 patterns (measures indifferent) and the patterns can be assembled into songs (99 too). It's enough to do a good job.

SOUNDS

The sound samples are very good and always actualit my taste. For rock / jazz / latin is really excellent. For style house techno rap etc ... I think it's not a ...
All samples are usable and realistic which is not true of all bar. For shame that they are completely against figs (no update possible).
The expression is excellent, we believe it!

OVERALL OPINION

I bought new (the era 3500f) in 1985 I believe, and I always used. At the time of its release had the effect of a bomb (qualitprix report).
There was another model (hr16B) with different sounds, but I never had in his hands.
I am very attached and I care.
For 50 euros is given but beware of bad contacts pads.
