i love this box - it's a little over engineered (but what isn't these days) and there is a tiny bit of audio bleed on individual channel outputs, but otherwise it's a fantastic drum machine with a punchy sound, excellent sequencer and some really indepth audio editing features.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?
Wanted to love it but...

Well the 999 sounds amazing - like a steroided 909 with more sonic flexibility. However the thing handles like a pig. It's very difficult to control reliably in real time so you can forget live improv stuff really. The menu system is poorly laid out and often incomprehensible - it would have taken so little effort to get this right, I can't believe they didn't finish it off properly.
The internal filter is basically rubbish - there are plenty of decent filter circuits out there - don't understand why jomox chose one so naff and inappropriate for the 999 sound?
The live track muting (pressing the encoders) does an instant audio mute rather than enabling/disabling the sequence data for that track - this is ridiculous as it causes long bass notes to be truncated, and attack/transients to be missed! And it clicks in the process - argh. Build quality is good but has that jomox diy thing about it. I like that though.
Such a shame the UI is so poor, would have loved to have kept the sounds but switched to a rytm which is way better - i.e. it's actually a lot of fun to use, not really annoying like this one!
