Hi ;)

Just to know what drum machines you are using..?
I'm working for 20 years now with the Boss DR-550 MKII, and wait for the Korg Volca Beat :)

Korg Electribe ER-1.  A product of it's era, but a solid box.
most often utilized with an EQ and detuner to create grinding and rumbling textures and/or with a set delay and effects to create broken industrial-tinged 'noise' loops.

I found if you pitch-shift a drum machine down, it sounds like a factory, esp if you programmed random beats into it.

I have been working with the Boss DR 670 for at least a decade. I can not remember exactly when I bought it.....
It is still clicking and ticking.
I like it a lot.
However the hardware/software Spark really captured my attention.
I played with the demo down load I realized it was a very powerful bit of kit.
Possbly giving the big boys of mechanized beatdom a good run for my money.

MPC500 and recently Electribe Es-1.

Electribe is somewhat limiting in the way of time signatures/loops but has a very smooth interface for recording directly into the machine...complements the MPC by providing a base rhythm to guide my terrible sense of timing in sequence mode.

The sequencer can make for some very blown-out improvisations via layering to infinity...only catch with the MPC is the terrible onboard sample editing, which pretty much necessitates the use of a computer.

Has anybody used Alesis SR 16? Godflesh used it and I dig that cold unnatural no-nonsense drum machine sound of their early albums. Vintagesynth.com tells that: "No doubt the SR-16 is a powerful drum machine, but ultimately it also sounds like a drum machine. All those bumper stickers about drum machines having no soul just might be directed at the SR-16." That's exactly what i feel like getting.

Got one a few years ago but haven't used it much. Find the pads a bit too tight, not very flexible. Decent sound, but requires a fair bit of tweaking for mine.

I actually ended up bying one. Very affordable. A bit clumsy but I really like some of those drum sounds, especially when run through efx chain and/or overloading through mixer.
