    Hey everyone,

    I recently picked up one of theses tr-505's, an old skool drum machine/composer etc... it was made in like 86, but works awesome..

    i like it because its super easy to use, not too many buttons, and its pure vintage...

    i was wonering if you guys think it would be safe to run it in the effects loop of my eden navigator head... pre- eq

    for live situations i could just send the signals for out right out of my speakers(accugroove) and i think it would sound pretty sweet...

    does anyone know if this is possible? if it is, i'm gonna have a slide out drawer/platform type deal made for my rack case, so the drum machine can be pulled out, then flipped up on an angle for live situations etc...

    here's a pic/

    Yes, it will work fine in the FX loop.

    Is that yours in the pic? Who added all the toggle switches?
