Hello, I also just bought a second hand TR-606. The machine composes patterns just fine, but when I compose a rhythm track, the machine seems a little haywire. I can't tell if this is due to the fact that the machine is referencing the previous owner's preset rhythm tracks and I need to delete them somehow or if the machine needs repair. What do you think? THX!

Jason, Perhaps when you changed the batteries the last step got changed to 7, or the time signature got changed. If this is the case put the 606 in pattern write mode then hold the function key and press the 16th step key. This should reset the pattern length to 16. Also make sure the scale pattern is set to 4/4 time. To do this enter pattern write mode then hold the funtion key and move the scale slider to position 1.

Hi I have recently bought a second hand Drumatix TR-606, however, the batteries in it were weak and the other day when i went to use it. they were dead. Now with new batteries the drum red leds only light up to the 7th and not all the way to the 16th. Can anyone tell me how to reset this back to normal. Many thanks Jason
