EC-909 is an analogue drum machine and bass line generator. It features
16 sounds taken directly from the classic Roland TR-909 drum machine, and
a bassline generator for squidgy TB-303-style riffs. Up to ten drum and
ten bass patterns can be programmed, then arranged in the song sequencer
enabling you to build a whole tracks' worth of drum and bass. Alternatively,
once you've created your loops, they can be either exported as a sample
to use in your direct-to-disk recording software, or sent, via MIDI, to
an external sampler. You can even save a MIDI file template of your patterns.

This really makes it an open-ended rhythm engine rather than just a current fad, drum machine. It's a serious drum machine, too. Not only does it support real-time MIDI play of the pads, but you can also export the pattern to an AIFF file, or indeed MIDI sample dump it to your sampler."
