Yamaha DD-10
Digital Drum Band Percussion (1988)

 

Cheap drum machine with pads - based on Low quality PCM samples, a simple sequencer and some basic Midi features.

edit
SEQUENCER basic real-time system feature with metronome and a kind of quantisizer.
Some sequencer functions: clear a note, assign a sound to any pads, roll option.
TIP: tempo can be internally set or defined using TAP button.

editMIDI
machine has only Midi Input to trigger sounds. No special Control Change, just plain Note on/off.

editMODIFICATION
I don't think there are a lot of possible modification due lack of total interest to this machine.
