The TR-707 is a great source for cheap 909 samples. It has some other cool features too such as its Matrix display which clearly maps out your pattern for you in an easy to read display panel. It also features both MIDI in/out and DIN sync control – the best of both worlds. Why this unit even has individual outputs for each of its drum tones! For programming, it features a shuffle and flam effect and its programming abilities are very impressive. But it does have its limitations, the only adjustment you can make to each drum tone is volume.
In this video:
This time, tributing early house tracks of 1986-1987 era, based on the Roland TR707 drummachine.. As always, all tracks selected and recreated by ear. None of the original tracks were sampled.
All TR-707 & additional TR-727 and TR-808 beats were rebuilt on a Korg Electribe SX sampler (no stock sounds). Basses and some synth parts were loosely remade with my analog synths (see below).
Rick Astley – Never gonna give you up (707, 727)
Michael McDonald – Sweet Freedom (707, 727)
Taylor Dayne – Tell it to my Heart (house mix) (707, 808)
Mr Fingers (Larry Heard) – Washing Machine
Rick & Lisa – When you gonna (707, 808)
Jungle Wonz – The Jungle
Wired – To the Beat of the Drum (707, 808)
Marshall Jefferson – Move your Body
Phuture – Your only Friend
Joe Smooth – Promised Land (707, 727)

Bluetooth or NFC may both be good candidates and alternatives to all those chords going forward:
MIDI sync over Bluetooth using two iPads running Korg’s MS-20 synthesizer and iElectribe drum machine. now possible with Korg’s implementation of wireless sync-start technology (WIST) and no latency even over built-in speakers! shot w/ iPhone 4 in left hand.

Up to 256 patterns can be created and stored to the internal memory. You can combine patterns, add mute data and knob movements to create up to 64 songs. To get you started, a wide assortment of patterns covering house, hip-hop, R&B, electronica, drum’n’bass, techno, trance and more come preloaded – 196 in the ELECTRIBE·MX. Using the last step function, you can easily adjust to any odd meter. Favorite patterns can be assigned to Pattern Sets for instant access. Data can be quickly saved and loaded via SmartMediaTM.
Audio inputs allow you to process external signals through the on-board filter and effects, and an extra pair of assignable outputs has been added as well. The front panel knobs and switches control all the most important sound parameters, allowing you to modify the sound in realtime as you perform, and giving you a hands-on feel like that of an analog synthesizer.
