Excellent and clever product but........

Christopher2009, 31.07.2015
This is very good product. However it requires a great deal of persistence and patience to get to use it effectively due to a particularly very poorly produced instruction manual. Had I not also owned a DR5 for many years I would more than probably have given up. Thank goodness for help from YouTube and the web.

Not easy - but really good.

Harun U., 13.07.2013
If I could find a drummer, the 24 hours a day always good and always tangible is ... I do not find however ...

The Boss DR-3 is a really good alternative.

Unpacking - Connecting - Getting Started: Unfortunately, this is not easy.
And the part nods me not too briefly, before it starts ...
And it does not take care when I get too fast.

But after a week of experimenting and I am enthusiastic.
If one has understood that one does not find 100 completed accompaniments,
Which can be played without further processing, but a huge kit of patterns, from which one his own accompaniment composes, then one the spit away.

100 ready intros + 300 transitions + 6 x 100 finished patterns + 100 ends ...
- all super-easy to edit,
- all again in 50 drumkit variations
- Tempo, transposing, bass, everything easy to edit
- record or correct in realtime recording or step by step ....
- really good velocity-sensitive keys

After a week I manage to create a very very neat percussion accompaniment + bass in about 30 minutes - (I think this will be even faster.)

The memory does not disappear when the batteries are replaced.
(Batteries hold with me about 6 hours - is however now by Harley Benton
PowerPlant [brumm .- u. Noise-free].
(Have alternatively times the Thomann NT AC / PSA connected: also noise free)

With Boss FS-6 dual switch, you can: "Start", click well through the variations of its patterns and "Quit". The accompaniment is very lively by changing the patterns and the corresponding fills.

Really good: next to the "drum line" you can get three !!! "Bass lines" and has also a useful bass accompaniment, which can be easily transposed.

Positive:
- the technical possibilities are wrong.
- the service - if you have it then times understood - very simple
- after a few days of work you get really good drums + bass
- Sound: excellent - live appearance suitable
- controllable via foot switch.

Negative:
- the plastic part does not look noble.
(Is me wurstegal ... is not a picture, but is to make music ..)
- Durability will show up ....
- does not accompany a beer after a jam ...

In short: totally recommendable.

------------------------------------
Supplement after 9 months of use:
- the positive impression has solidified.
- a useful rhythm is going to be fixed.
Would buy it again.
