Korg KPR 77

Ok.... I know nowt about this except various people I've met owned 'em... they go like a cross between a 808 and home-organ drum machine sorta thing. Interesting sound.

I'm gonna add a few more of the old drum boxes besides the TR range., not that i've used them all myself, but i'm gonna add the spec's at some point when i've time, until then people can add comments based on real-life use, so , as i had nothing to do today, i thought i'd start to add them as basic page templates. then add the spec's later, so...

The KORG KPR 77..... please add your comments

Paid 20 for this about 12 years ago...came without a manual. Sounds a bit like a 606...the drum sounds are much better when sampled and EQ'd though. So long since I last used it cannot really remember what it does sound like....I'll dig it out and re-report!!

The KPR is one of the rarest and most unique sounding drum machines ever. The
bass drum is a short little thonk, the snare is snappy and white noisish, the hats are so cool, they're very metallic sounding and the open one has the best hissy open hi hat sound I've ever heard -- truely unique and wonderful. The toms sound like a sample of someone playing drums on tupperware (plastic food containers -- for you brits), the clap sounds like someone flicking their finger against a small box of matches, again another weird and wonderful KPR exculsive. From my experience this was Korg's answer to Roland's TR-606, but the 606 sound are in the same vein as an 808 but the KPR sounds truely weird and unlike really anything other than a KPR.
The manual is also chock full of mis spellings and really bad Japanese ENGRISH. (joke). Also of note you can remove 4 to 6 phillips screws and have direct access to all of the pots in an orderly and organized fashion for further tweaking of the sounds, which I'm sure would be much more difficult if not virtually impossible to do on roldand's analogue TR's. I've got two of these and aside from the crap din sync which is half speed of roland's which means if you sync the KPR with a roland TR it will run half the speed of the TR which really sucks, other than that I love the quaint little box, one of the best $100 I've ever spent.

sounds good and great value for the money, but I traded it in after a few months for a higher end roland unit with built in cd burner.

just thought i'd note that i once heard or read that this was used heavily on the depeche mode album "speak and spell" - if so, it's amazing... if you like that sort of thing.

The KPR-77 was the first drum machine I ever bought. I was onto my third or fourth drum machine(several years later,) before I sourced a manual and discovered it wasn't actually broken. What can I say? It's like trying to program a farmyard animal. The sounds have their charm (VERY boxy,crappy bottom end, white noisy cymbals) but for user friendliness, I'd download a sample pack of them and leave the machine on the shelf. Unless you are one of these time-rich, crappy sounding drums-poor people. Or Carl Craig, in which case I bow down to your taste,intellect and judgement. Or Depeche Mode, in which case it's really not my business what you do in your personal life.

So far i see an enormous potential in this "forgotten" machine. Many features that a 606 can take. I strongly dis-recommend it to people who are not comfortable with the "MPC" kind of production style, where hitting the pads in time is crucial. Because the quantization is way more rafined than the 606. I'm not sure if it has to do with the fact it uses din 48, but you can achieve much greater swings than on the roland version. Also, if you fear crunchy sounds, this is definitely not for you. If you like experiences and risky human swing-taking: go and get it!
