The TR-727 is a Latin drum kit version of the TR-707. Very cool for tribal, latin and Indian house beats. Individual outputs and volume sliders for each sound, all the same great features and cool Matrix display and MIDI implementation as the TR-707. For programming, it features a shuffle and flam effect and its programming abilities are very impressive. But it does have its limitations, the only adjustment you can make to each drum tone is volume. Aphex Twin, Freddy Fresh, and Luke Vibert have used the TR-727.
