Here I show you the features and sounds in pattern mode, first playing the intro to After Forever's "Follow in the Cry". All sound is coming from this machine, including FX (center) and distortion (switch on the back). The future retro lets you chain & loop up to 16 patterns while still playing in pattern mode! (hold down first pattern then push the ending pattern) It also has song sequencing mode, which I didn't go into.
Overall I really like this machine and I think its cooler than the x0xb0x in that it has FX and the circular sequencer.
