Waited a year before writing this

and the verdict is: it's an extremely capable drum machine that can find a home in any electronic setup *(what I use it for). It's clearly designed for both studio use and performance.

Configurability is definitely it's biggest strength.
-It plays well with other hardware, the assignable outs and external inputs are great to have.
-Being able to bring audio/MIDI into a DAW is good. For example, I can split the audio into Kick, Snare, and a mix of everything else on another channel. Makes side-chaining in the DAW much easier.

OK, so lets talk about the sound.
-The ACB instruments are pretty great, watch some videos and decide with your own ears. I reach for them by default.
-It's nice to have sample import but it requires a bit of preparation. I don't use them often.
-The FX are good for the most part. Delay and reverb are much improved from the TR-8. Sometimes I find the distortion just too digital for a kick, and the bitcrush also (the reverb one on the TR-8 rocked); they're both good on Snares tho.
Overall the sound is great
The quality is grand. Hard plastic but feels nice. Much improved aesthetic.
A+ drum machine.

Stellar!
George Z, 04.04.2018
Truly inspiring and great sounding machine. Very easy to operate out of the box but also allows for quite deep sound design. The ACB sounds are clean and phatt and the included samples are great too. Really easy to tune each sound the way you want it.

Only thing I wish it had sample time stretch so you can easily match sounds and loops to the pattern BPM.

Feature packed bundle, many options, good haptic. Sounds and digital cleanliness were not exactly to my taste.
