This is the drum machine I was looking for

Marmaduke, 17.05.2014
I've been somewhat frustrated in recent years being a home studio guitar band type musician and using several old drum machines, mostly an R-8 and an SR-16. I tried and didn't like the SR-18 but this DR-880 is just about right. 80% of the sounds are regular drum and percussion sounds, and very good ones. If you fear a machine packed with subsonic thuds and urban grunts you won't find many here.

I docked a star for handling because although the interface is good and the display is pretty clear (and backlit) there is a gold standard for drum sequencing, and that is still the TR-808 or more modern machines like the Elektrons. The DR-880 does have a far better sequence display than the R-8 but still not quite up with the best.

I also docked one for quality. The buttons are not great for playing (in this case not as good as the R-8) and the whole unit is fairly light plastic. I expect it will last well enough, especially as I tend to play into the machine from a keyboard which has a better feel.

Overall though a great machine and just what I needed to bring my drum sounds up to date in a more modern package. The "human feel" features (ghost notes, fills, etc.) work well and if you want to see what the machine can do click through to the Bonzo patterns which have a very passable Led Zep. The chord and bass programming is also handy if you need it (you can keep a bunch of complete songs to play along with). It's also very easy to switch out the input effects and ambience.

The single most important element in any style of dance music is the 'groove', a chemistry of rhythm for your song that can make or break its overall feel.
