brilliant machine, not just for the price but in general. fun, intuitive and with a much bigger sound than you'd expect from such an inexpensive piece of kit.

A good analog drumbox for the price

The build quality is a bit shoddy - some of the potentiometers were super stiff when I got my purchase. Other than that I am very pleased with the 522. A solid product for the price.

If you're looking for an authentic 808 experience, you're out of luck, as the hihats do not sound like a TR-808. But other than that, the 522 delivers a nice analog 808ish sound.

Nice little analog drum machine/sequencer

I stumbled across this in a YouTube video and thought it was exactly what I wanted, a nice simple step based analog sounding drum machine. It was mostly better than I expected, and smaller too.

Being step based (rather than "tick" based) makes it really easy to use, though having eight buttons for 16 steps is a little tricky, and likewise bit fiddly to get to all the different tom/conga pitches. On the other hand when the "fill-in" feature is enabled it's suddenly a 32-step machine.

The icing on the cake is having individual (mono) outputs for the bass, snare/rim, clap and hi-hats - when plugged in the corresponding drum is removed from the main (stereo) output allowing you to, for example, run one or more of these to its own mixer channel and use an insert effect. Be warned though, this is a small unit and uses 3.5mm output jacks rather than quarter-inch (6.3mm) jacks. I found that "Doepfer adapter cables" work well for the individual outputs.

Overall very pleased with this unit.

Good fun, but flawed.

Great little beast for fun beefy kicks & 808 style doings. Flakey build quality lets it down. Send the ind. outs to your mixer for best results. Great price though.

Worth the price for the lush 808-style kick alone. Not particularly robust for gigs etc, but great bit of kit for the studio.
