How is the XL-7? I've contemplated replacing my MC-505 with an XL-7.

The things I like about my MC-505:

* The phrase sequencer is fun for live playing in a way that's a bit more
interesting than just muting and unmuting tracks.

The main thing I dislike about my MC-505:

* I hate having to stop the sequencer to do things like save a pattern.

I've also been tempted by the Machinedrum, but that's moving in rather a
different direction.
