I'm assuming both. As you get the high q sound by recording the trig out.

Reckless is one of my favourite songs, and is the one of the tracks that made me want to make electronic music

The Egyptian Lover got his Hi-Q sound by taking the accent out trig and feeding it to a channel on a mixing desk. Make sure you turn the gain right down on the mixing desk or your speakers will be popping and clipping a lot, or even get damaged.

Other than that, the sound is good for classic old-school electro.

I just picked up a 606 for $50 on CL; the guy had it in storage for awhile, took it out and couldn't get it to power on; I told him I would give it a shot and took it off of his hands. I got it home, plugged it in, and... nothing.

Opened it up, looked for blown caps, corrosion, etc but couldn't find anything. He was using a Rat Shack power adapter so I looked at that, and noticed the little adapter had the polarity reversed, so I switched it around, plugged it in and it powered up. :D

fully operational TR-606 for $50. I <3 CL.

As far as i am aware the accent output produces no sound so im not sure how i would produce a hi q with it at least it only sightly less powerful as a 707 kick
