Kawai R-50 Drum Machine

Amanda did a bit of EBaying for me the other week. She got me an old 1980's Kawai R-50 Drum machine. It looks all nice and old and retro. It contains 12bit samples, which at the time was a high bit rate.
Unfortunately I can't use the machine yet as it didn't come with a power adapter, so I will have to nip to Maplins during the week.
I am suspecting that it will sound quite shit on its own, but most drum machines really come alive when you add effects processing after them in the signal chain, so expect some creature tracks to contain this machine :-)
