A 4-voice digital drum machine released in 1985. Essentially an improved version of the DrumTraks.

Tom includes 8 basic drum kit sounds: kick, snare, 2 toms, open / closed hat, clap and crash. Instead of being hard-assigned to separate channels, thy can be dynamically allocated between the voices, allowing overlapping and using 4 copies of the same sound simultaneously.

The programmable individual tuning controls are very flexible. Other features include the ability to play the sounds backwards, MIDI controllable parameters and extra sound cartridges.

The Studio 440 became Tom's successor.
