What a strange choice. The 606 was my first ever drum machine and it was very, very basic. It didn't sound especially good, either. It's not really a "classic", I can't see too many people wanting one.

Famous people have used it, and it's a Roland *0*... I bet it makes sense, marketing wise.

I used one in the past and the only thing I really remember about it is how unreliable it was.

Can't say I'm interested in this one.

There was a time when I would have been thrilled to have Behringer remakes of the 909, 808, 606. But now I have so many other options... so many other drum machines, Eurorack drum modules, VSTi drum synths, massive sample sets... it seems pointless to me to spend money and take up precious space on such limited machines. I mean strictly for my own personal needs- I can understand why other people would be excited. If I could only get one of these three, I’d be hard pressed to choose.
Incomplete list of my gear: 1/8" audio input jack.

Pretty sure BONES has me blocked anyway. So hopefully he won't feel emotionally slighted.[
Full of yourself much? Why would anyone block an amateur lightweight like you?

Seriously? Have you never heard them? They are all awful. The only viable drum machine from that era, the only thing capable of taking it to the LinnDrum, was the TR 707.

TR808
TB303
Fender Rhodes
Hammond B3
Gibson Les Paul
Fender Precision

What do they all have in common?
They all totally fail to convincingly sound like the traditional instruments they were developed to replace.
They were all used to carve out new forms of music that might never have existed without them.

I find it quite bizarre that there are purists that get upset when modern production of those instruments "doesn't sound right".
