"While its electronic drum kit sounds may not be as popular today as the TR-909 or TR-808, the DrumTraks exceeds them with superior editing capabilities."
I'll probably miss this if I do decide to sell , but I'm running out of room. I have too many drum machines.
The Drumtracks hails from 1984.
DrumTraks can output a clock signal and is also fully MIDI capable. This makes it very easy to use with old analogs and new MIDI synths and sequencers.
