Ace Tone | FR-70


The Ace Tone Rhythm Ace FR-70 is a floor based stand alone drum machine with built in amplifier and speaker like the FR-20. It has 24 preset rhythms and 4 cancel rocker switches that allow for muting the cymbal, guiro, snare and bass drum sounds. Additionally it has two more rocker switches for producing snare rolls and changing the cymbal timbre. 3 knobs completed the front panel for volume, balance and tempo control of the rhythm and sound.

The unit being standalone still has a lot of flexibility for integrating it into a setup. It features an audio input for external instruments and an external instrument for sending it's signal to another amplifier or mixer. It also has a foot switch input for remotely starting and stopping the rhythms.

Aftertouch Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
