Drum Machine & Sequencer

Cyclone Analogic TT-78 Beat Bot drum machine & sequencer is the next step in their collection of classic reproductions of iconic drum machines. The TT-78 is modelled after the classic CR-78 drum machine from Roland, produced in 1978. The TT-78 contains all the modern upgrades one would expect, while also being housed in a sleek shell, similar to the TT-303 and TT-606.

It has the same intuitive sequencing functions as previous Cyclone Analogic units, but with a completely different sound palette, using sounds like Bongos, Congas, Maracas, and Guiro. There are seven individual outputs, providing independent jacks for most of the sounds. It also comes complete with MIDI In, Out and Thru, for synchronising the TT-78 with all one's other gear. An analogue drum machine clone of the famous CR78, with a lot of new features and improvements.

The design of the analogue circuit and the sequencer gives it a warm and groovy sound as its elder brother with much more varied sound possibilities. The very intuitive sequencer takes on the original spirit while bringing new and unique features and allows you to quickly create complex patterns and grooves while offering great flexibility for live jamming and more sound variations.
