DRUM MACHINESthe KR55 (1979) it was used by depeche mode (speak & spell) and strange disco acts like “divine” or “bobby orlando” or lime3 .. well.. it is somewhat close to roland TR606 and TR808 imho this is one of the most important ones by korg, seems it has not the same cult status as the TR’s… korg had a lot of drum machines but most of them did not really hit the “legendary” limit..

a quite TR606-like machine is the KPR77 (1982), which is even more like what I said about the kr55, it is very analogue and sounds quite like TR808.. more on it ASAP..
also korg did a lot of “cheap” ones like the DDM110 and DDM220 (the latin percussion version from 1985) in the mid 80ies and sample based drum machines like the ddd1 , ddd5 (1986/87) and s3 ..
these are those one could call “bread and butter” hardware..

the minipops from 1974 was quite famous , maybe because of Jean Michel Jarre playing it on his frist albums, it sounds very simple and is a simple preset machine – anyway it has it’s charme..
