The history of the Korg KPR-77
The Korg KPR-77 Drum Machine appeared in 1983 as a competitor to the Roland TR-606. The drum computer produces its sounds analog, but never reached the cult status of the TR series. This may be due to the sounds of the KPR-77, which seem a bit duller in comparison, or their not very intuitive handling.
