Its really about the sound. The kick and snare on
this machine really sit well in a mix and naturally
generate excitement with the full body of their sound.
The timing, when run in stand alone, is tight as a monkey's
ass, far better than a typical midi based DM. This is also
true for any analogue drum machine like a TR-XXX.

This is the most kick ass new analogue DM out now.

On the cheaper side is the gorgeous little MFB drum
machine which is around 100 EUR (or maybe 200?).
This machine sounds soft and unique. Probably
my next purchase.
