REVIEW
"The DRM1 is a pain to use on this tiny panel, but once set it can be fun playing with triggers. Sounds are pretty old and not very up to date, however still a good source for lo-fi percussions. Just be sure to get the remote controller or you will not be able to properely use/edit the unit."
