via this auction

You can find demos of the DD10 including some X1L3 circuit bent models in previous posts here.

"The Yamaha DD-10 is a great stereo digital drum machine with 8 touch sensitive drum pads, 98 preset rhythms played on some 26 or so drums. It comes with one demo pattern and the ability to store 2 user patterns.

It responds to MIDI and the channel for MIDI can be set. It runs on 9-12 volts and can be powered by C batteries (power supply or batteries not included!). We recommend using it with batteries because all compatible power supplies are always a bit noisy.

• TEMPO: The Tempo can be generated from a manual entry system where you merely tap a button and the unit plays at the tempo you are hitting the button.

• PADS: The pads are assignable from the kits available. All the pads can sound at the same time. The green purple and white buttons choose from the 3 sets of instruments available for each pad!

• MIDI: The Channel for the DD10 can be set by pressing the MIDI MODE button and the numeric buttons for the channel. Entering 00 means the DD10 will respond to each drum note sent to it individually - entering 99 means it will respond to a MIDI clock signal and program numbers will change which rhythm is playing. MIDI channel response is good and ability to swap to note mode or clock mode makes it easy to configure to any setup!

• RHYTHMS: The rhythms cover all the usual patterns. There are 100 patterns, two of which (98 and 99) are user programmable by using the pads! There is also a built in metronome.

• USER PATTERNS: The user patterns are selected using number 98 and 99 for the rhythm number and can be overdubbed as the sequence loops."
