"The DDD-5 is a digital programmable
drum machine from Korg from the mid-eighties. It was
a newer but less professional version of the DDD-1.
It offers 14 electronic drum sounds at once with a
typical mid-eighties electronic drum sound that is
not too popular today. In fact today the DDD-5 may
be used more often as a trusty old play along drum
machine for practicing musicians. Basic sounds
include kicks, snares, toms, rimshot, closed hi
hats, open hi hats, ride, crash, claps, cowbell,
tambourine and cabasa. Additional sounds can be
added using ROM cards, compatible with the DDD-1.
The DDD-5 does not include the sampling option that
was available on the DDD-1. And there are only seven
assignable Dynamic Sound buttons for triggering drum
