Roland TR-707 Drum Machines
The shuffle feature produces a lively feel to what ever it is you are playing. Unfortunately you can only apply accent to each step of the 16 and not to each sound independently, however you do get two initial levels of accent which can also be controlled using a master accent slider, which helps you to control the accent in a very fluid and natural manner.
If you intend to use the TR 707 in a dark room you will need to get a grasp as to how the LEDs work as the LCD screen is not backlit. This will come with a little practice and you could always use a lamp to help you until you are familiar. The 707 could really benefit from the addition of Midi and Din ports.
Itís not as good as the 808 or 909 by any means and the sounds are not one hundred percent realistic. The sound of cymbal decay and the toms could be much better, but for the most part the sounds are actually pretty good. It can be used by itself, but where this unit excels is using the midi out for sequencing, and you can easily slave other machines with it. For the most part it is a good sounding product that performs very well.
