This machine is nice...easy to flip back and forth between variations and to trigger fill ins..also manual fill in



I used no manual in learning how to use most features on this machine...for i have none....but that blasted composition mode....i peeked at an internet manual but when used the machine could only use my faulty memory as backing...i like to just play the machine is very easy and intuitive

i will hopefully use this machine to gig is very heavy..i could probably knock a wrestler out with it..and i am a little guy...this machine lasted 20 years before me so i think it should last for me...i never had to contact roland


The sound is that lovable analog....alittle bit more control over the sounds would be nice....but it is sure nice to turn that 808 sound into pummeling thumps and tinks and tics...


I really really like this is a bit on the expensive side but it has a sound that is very nice....i like to make it as fast as it can go and just make mush..i dont think samples turn into such wonderful aural paste ....i think it has something to do with analog...this machine sounds wonderfull also with 606 knocking along side of it..individual outs will someday fit nicley into a mackie:0)
