JSRockit how would you judge this DigiPRO feature in Monomachine? Is it a good sounding beatbox, is it easy to program?

It's simple to program...and can be used to good effect...but I don't use it to be honest... I'm upgrading my MnM, so maybe once I get my new one, I'l try to use the beatbox for a track.

When I'm working within ProTools I usually use Transfuser. Otherwise I'm always using my MPC 2500. There's just something about the MPC line that's hard to beat for me. They just sound great and have rock solid sequencing and swing.

I just picked up a TR-606 after wanting a programmable Roland drum machine for some time now. Still trying to figure out how to trigger my OB arpeggiator with it... because of the 1/8" jacks it's hard to work with.

Also for sample-based stuff I use Battery 3 which I really like and have made really good use of in a few songs so far but it is really limited to just studio use. For real stuff I play a 2003 Yamaha stage custom kit.

I use an EM-1 and sometimes I'll build drums in Audacity (Which is good for making drum samples).

This is still my favorite drum machine. 8)

Yeah, I know this is a synth forum and what I just posted is (almost) unforgivable, but after having played acoustic drums for 45 years I've never been too comfortable with the music I've made using various drum machines.

I'm not saying they're wrong in any way, but they're just not for me.

My cheap source for 808/909 sounds is the Novation Drumstation, better than samples because the sounds are still tweakable. All my other drum machines are midprice machines from the 80s like R-8M, RX7, DDD-1, XR10, DR550 Mk2. I sometime really would like to get a nice toy from the TR-range (especially 707) or even a Linndrum, but nowadays prices are out of this world.

I'm using a 606 and a 909 sequencing a Vermona DRM mkIII. It's sweet, but I hate having to stop the clock every time I want to change the shuffle or switch modes or write another pattern or something :? I 've got the GAS bad :oops: and I've owned quite a few other drum machines that didn't fix me including a Drumstation, Drumulator, 707, 727, Korg DDD-1, DR-55, Rhythm Ace FR-4, Xbase 09, and most recently an Oberheim DMX, which is on ebay if anyone is interested. I'm considering getting a Mungo sync 2 and using Ableton as the master clock, but it's just more fun having the 909 running things :)

Korg EMX-1, 707, 909

I've been sequencing each individually but I'm planning to start sequencing them all from the Octopus. I've rambled before about this in other threads, but I really like to be able to sequence everything from one place instead of syncing multiple devices and trying to keep pattern chains organized across multiple boxes.
