Its perhaps very simple as a machine but isnt that what house music is all about - Its just a clap and a bass drum beat.

Might get an MPC 60 next :)
run the BD ouput through tube amp and turn the bass UP :D. it's a bummer that the sounds are not tweakable, but thankfully Roland added one mono output per each drum sound so you can run individual sounds through effects, or record multitrack.

Oh how i love the 707. Had a 707/727 combo since i was a kid and will leave them to my family in my will..

The kick from the 707 is a bit weak as far as sub frequency's but it just begs to be layered with a medium decay 808 kick. Roll the 707 kick off with a highpass filter at 200hz. Roll the 808 kick off with a lowpass filter at 200hz. Enjoy the punch and quake that ensues. ;)
