Cyclone Analogic TT78

Beat bot (2017) 

Analog clone of the famous Roland CR78 with new features and Midi Control

- Roland Cr78 the original iconic one
- Cyclone Analogic TT606 from same producer, same case, dedicated to another iconic machine: the Roland TR606

SEQUENCER is based on classic Roland step mode recording or realtime using the tap button. The tt-78 adds swings, flame and roll. Special Nuance Auto-Variation, which adds a kind of humanize for a less static drum play.

Sync, memory

SYNC internal tempo or It is possible to slave the machine  to a MIDI clock received from an external MIDI source. It will respond to external start commands, stop commands, continue messages, and clock information.  No roland Dynsync, analog clock IN---  too bad.

MEMORY - User Patterns: 64 | User Tracks: 9 | User Drum Kits: 32 | User Clips: 16 per instrument

now sounds can be triggered from external sequencer with many Control change to control sounds parameters
