My first. That thing's heavy - I got fed up with the one I had because the buttons had got so unreliable. I didn't know enough at the time to try and get them going again. The swing on it is really nice as well.

I use my virus for a few drum sounds here and there, but mostly I just use battery 3

If I'm doing live drums I use my roland V drum kit into a few fx boxes, or I mic up my pearl kit.
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

I've been creating clipped, organic percussion tones with my KORG Electribe (EA-1 mkII) and then layering those two parts within a beat using the sampled drum and cymbal sounds on board the ZOOM MRT-3B. For added live feel fun, I'm using a foot switch, which controls the high hat on the MRT-3B (great for that groovy "Tsst-Tsst" riff).

Drum machines!

My favorite is an Alesis HR:16B which I had bent by Robert at Alien Devices. Here's a link in case you're interested --- it's amazing --- tons of possibilities, all of them noisy, cracked out, f**k up, mad, mad.

http://www.alien-devices.com/HR-16B.html

Incidentally, I bought the Alesis on the cheap from Trevor Dunn, bass player for Mr. Bungle & a million other things... Randomly, from craigslist...

I also use a Boss DR-202 mostly for its p.h.a.t. 808 samples... gotta have a little of that KA-BOOM, ya know?!

Snap! I've been selling some bits lately, but those two remain.

Other than that, I've been getting into my ES-1 recently, but the majority of my drums come from samples (have a folder with about 20,000 drum sounds which seriously needs sorting out!) sequenced in Ableton Live.

My next step is building some kind of drum trigger set up. V-Drums on the cheap.

i really like this machine, got it last month.. i also have a tr-77, boss dr550, and the zoom thing, a yamaha dd55 a broken tr505, and stuff
i totally dig how our ears can hear all this s**t and and we don't even do like half of it with normal instruments, and then all we gotta do is hook a speaker up to some circuits and move those circuits around and we can push our hearing to it's limits
