"It consist of a digital (12bit) rythm unit and a analog 4 traks accompaniment synth unit.
Very comprehensive unit: you can record up to 180 own patterns (32 presets each with fill, break, solo 2 bar and solo 4 bars) in top of the 612 (yes) prerecorded ones, up to 32 bar length and 1/64 resolution, realtime or step recording, instrument individual volumes, automatic or random fills, tempo saved per pattern, sequencer mode, pattern copy, seperate outputs and more
Drum part is working perfectly and battery is ok. The only small nag is the "roll" pad switch wich is different from the other pads (it doesn't feel the same) but is working as it should.

Synth part condition is unknow. It need a special keyboard (not a simple trigger keyboard) that I don't own. However the pcb are present and the section respond to panel control (instrument mute, instrument selection) but no sound comes from the box as is.

The unit is in excellent condition and it comes with a copy of the owner manual (german only but I'll provide instruction for the basic and more advanced function).
Also this unit has 8 individual outputs.
Quite big and sturdy instrument (10 kilos) with a retractable handle :-)
