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.
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!
Well it's not, its as complicated as any other drum sequencer. But trust me where ever i brought it with me, people were amazed by the sound it gives out. So if you want that vinyl sounding drums, this is your product. I dare to put my balls on this bet :)!
