The 707's high hats, ride and crash are vastly superior, even if you can't tune them, not to understate the drumtrax ride. The Drumtrax has some great percussion sounds though, but this is vs. the iconic rimshot and tamb. The drumtrax is great for more complex rhythms, and you have access to finer quantization without using up multiple patterns for one rhythm. The 707 is much more useful for syncing with other rolands, and it can send dinsync while slaved if it's slaved via tape sync. And like others pointed out, you have the linear programing vs. only tap edit, but on the drumtrax you have the erase feature which i don't think you have on the 707, so you could potentially have little jams just in record mode only, which is a lot of fun. (maybe you can erase in tap edit mode on the 707, I forget) And, the drumtrax is 8 bit while the 707 is 12. And you can hear the difference: the drumtrax has a little bit of a mirage duskiness to it, especially when you bring out the aliasing by pitching sounds.
