Slim Boy Phat!!!! 10.09.2021
RD 6, the Yellow peril joins his TD 3 Yellow sibling.... brings back all
the limitions of both machines.... and a real joy in pissing about with
them both for hours and hours of electro, acid house tweaking! I did at
one stage think their may have been a glitch with the Track Write Mode...
but it was chubby finger syndrome i'm glad to report! He work's a treat
and yet again it's a little lite just like the TD 3 but that is no real problem... it just means I can take more TD 3's to my next show! You can
also use the SynthTRIBE app to save your patterns as well as program your
beats and make system changes with the app. One more thing but not a deal
breaker! The 606 had alittle feature that when in pattern write mode, the
selected sound could be deleted while holding down the clear button, as
it play's thru the bar it removes all steps of the selected sound. Maybe
this could be implemented in a future firmware up date. Oh bloody hell
they have just implemented that... and now you can change the decay
setting on the open hi-hat too. This amounts to another sure fire hit for
Behringer! Whats next Uli......

Fast! Fast! Fast.... shipping from the Thomann team! Thank you;)

BS
Sounds better with a bot of processing
Ben Sudo 08.11.2021
The TR-606 had way more punch, but only one out and no midi and most surviving unit will look pretty ratty by now. I don't find the distortion that useful but others may. I do like the clap but not the Kick - until I input it into a Boss BX-16 mixer and giving it some mixer distortion - which made it SHINE. That kick sounds like nothing else ! Lucky I found this mixer cheap before giving up on the RD-6. Worth the price of admission though I'm kinda pissed paying the full price and seeing them for 35€ less that what I paid. I imagine similar results can be obtained with other mixers, the snare is fine and the cymbals are nice and metallic. You can hear the 606 sound but it's not 100% but who really cares - unless you want to buy an expensive old 606 and have it modded for MIDI and individual outs, though I know some like to program the sequencer so then all you need is the added outs. I have the MA and it looks nicer to my eyes than the 606 of which I've had 3 in my life. Though if I had the $$ I'd get another 606 with full mods and keep this one as well.

Twin for my TD-3 AM
mckenic 05.12.2020
Was going to buy this no matter what as a twin for my TD-3 AM... so... much.... yellow! :-)

I think it sounds great - and yes, I do have an OG 606 here I A/B it with. The RD closed hats are sightly higher pitched than my 606 (but not in a bad way), the clap is hella loud (in a bad way - one star off) but I hope there might be an internal trimmer to adjust this. I'll wait and pick up a silver to open up and have a look.

Clap aside Im very happy with the overall sound - the distortion if used sparingly 'monofies' the sound and can be used as a dirty filter in a way - just another sound shaping option Im glad to have.

I was going to give 4 stars for quality. Its light, plastic and cheap as all heck - but you know that before you buy it - and its YELLOW smiley AM so paired with the TD AM 5 stars.

I have lots of 'serious' gear and the two AMs are just pure fun and make me smile using them - for the price they are - whats not to love!

Lovely nostalgia!
gumpbert 21.07.2021
The sound is to my ears spot on. As an extra bonus Behringer has added a very nice clap sound. Programming is fairly straight forward and it can be used as a sound module that is controlled by your DAW. Extra nice is that it can send MIDI data to your DAW so you can record the patterns as MIDI notes.

The build quality is perfectly good for the price.

It doesn't have swing or tunable drum sounds, but neither did the original. If you are in the market for a 606 clone, this is a very good choice that faithfully recreates the original while also adding a couple of really nice extras.
