- Can the sound be edited?

No and it's good so!!

- Does the unit have an effects section?

No and it's good so!! Separate outputs so external processing is not a problem.

- Sequencer features:

Amazing!!! I had heard about the reputation of TR sequencers but now I know firsthand what ll that talk is about ;)


- Is it easy to make settings?

Yes, the user's manual explains everything.

- Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?

I can't complain, I find it very clear.


Do the presets fit your music style?

No problem in my case: Acid, house, vintage electro, etc.


It's my first TR and I find this Roland product amazing. The sequencer is mind blowing and I can only imagine the possibilities with a 808 or a 909. I understand why other manufacturers can't compete with it.

I can say now that I have mastered the unit and I know every function. After spending hours programming it I simply push the start button and I get fully programmed and edited beats out of the TR-707. I needed a long time to learn how to use it but it was worth it.

It's true that the TR-707 enhances your creativity, but before you get to that point you must understand how it works otherwise you won't get too far.

I bought it secondhand at an incredible price. Now that I've mastered it, I'm very happy with my purchase and I plan to buy another TR.
