SOUND the analog board generates 6 sounds with many variations to the original and some sound tweak, and it sounds really good!
- Bassdrum1+2: The Bassdrum1 is similar to an TR808-Bassdrum with its`down-pitch`, and the parameters Tune and Decay. The Bassdrum2 is the 606-Bassdrum with the Parameters Tune and Decay. 
- Snaredrum1+2: The SnareDrum1 is the 606-SnareDrum (similar to the 808-SnareDrum with a low Tone-setting), with an additional parameter  Snappy. The SnareDrum2 is similar to the 808-SnareDrum with a high Tone-setting and a more aggressive Snappy parameter. 
- LowTom + HighTom: Each of the 606-Toms has got a Tune-parameter. 
  - RimShot + HandClap: The RimShot uses the 808 sound-circuit.  The HandClap-circuit is very close to the HandClap of a DR-110
- Cymbal: The 606-Cymbal sound-circuit has the additional parameters Tone and Decay, like an 808. 
  HiHats: The HiHats are identical to the HiHats from a 606. There are additional Decay-Parameters for the OpenHiHat and f or the ClosedHiHat.

MEMORY Patterns can be saved into 12 memory locations.

SEQUENCER The sequencer offers six modes between which you can change on the fly; then copy/paste (in Pattern Play mode) and variable pattern lengths. The patterns can be chained. Four scales are available. There are two shuffle types (TR-909 and CR-8000), adjustable in 5 steps each. 
Each instrument can be played directly with MIDI notes 36-46, above velocity level 100 the instrument is played with accent.
