My first drum machine is a Boss DR-5. Even worse drum sounds.
This thing.... I dunno, on the one hand most of the hi hats sounded like steam releasing on its best days. On the other, if you layered the same sound at different volumes on the same note, you could create a really surreal distortion effect, especially with the analog kit. It sounded like vaporizing electricity.
De-tuning and pitch shifting a lot of the drum sounds could also be done. Basically you had to screw with it to make it sound nice. And then as for MIDI conversion, for some reason only every other pad actually linked up to a given computer.
Also this thing sounds great, I wish I had gotten one of these(or better yet the little sampler from the same product line) instead of the QY-10 I have, which is cool for low quality, almost tracker-like general midi sounds but more of a hassle to use.
On the other hand, it's tempting to drop the -ish for a Novation MM10 because this has to be one of the more stylish crappy gear setups I've seen:
