Roland TR-606

The TR-606 features six sounds: Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Hi Tom, Lo Tom, Cymbal and Open/Closed Hi Hat. All sounds are totally analogue, but none are tunable. Cymbal is halfway between a ride and crash. If you play it with accent it really jumps out at you. Not the best of sound but you can usually find a use for it. Hi Hats are very nice analogue hi-hats, very much like the TR-808. Because the open, closed and accented sounds interact in interesting ways, you can actually program in a lot more dynamics than you'd think. Like the TR-808, the 606 offers Accent. Accent isn't a sound. Instead it lets you place accents on certain beats in the bar. All instruments playing on these beats are accented. Most of the instruments sound different with accent (not just louder).
