Best grab & go rhythm machine available
Erky32, 25.04.2020
I have tried many accompaniment machines from way back with Alesis SR16, korg mini, both Beatbuddies, Trios, SDrum, Finhols, looper add-on drummachines, etc as well as manual Kickpedal & cajon, or homemade or commercial stomp boxes. Whether for home use, or gigging - this one, to me, is the best. It is small, light easy portable , battery or plugin power, can be DI into PA or amp. For acoustic just use as it comes - you can even do cafe gig if plugged into your PA. It's very intuitive and does what you expect it to do and the rhythm patterns suit all genre of music - styles are easy to create on the hoof, but also 50 memory slots gives a good selection for prepreparation for a performance. It is well made so all is good! - BUT - I look forward to the 2nd Generation which I would ask/hope includes a pedal option for "fills" to break the monotony, an option to override the speaker mute when DI-ed (I wish this existed on more low power amps to use as monitors), and thirdly built-in battery rechargability. They're not cheap to buy, such embelishments probably come at a cost - but I would pay a little extra for perfection! Well done Boss!

Practical accessory
AndiBass EST, 30.03.2020
I needed easy-to operate drum machine to support practicing at home and to create backtracks to my band members. I plan to use the device some rare occasions when performing.

After couple of months I can say the device met my expectations. There are certain limitations but I was aware of them. Use of foot-switch eases to operate hands-on-the-instrument.

Pros:
- good price
- large variety of pre-programmed rhythm patterns
- easy to operate
- sounds are superb
Cons:
- lacks possibility to create and save A-B parts for one song
- lacks possibility to create custom rhythms from the scratch

Overall opinion. I strongly recommend the device if You need it for home practicing and if You are looking for simple addition to Your acoustic guitar or folk music playing.

Tolles Teil, leider mit erheblichen Einschränkungen
Suntyp, 06.02.2018
Lange habe ich auf so ein Teil gewartet. Für unser Akustik Cover Duo eine ideale Ergänzung, wenn nicht...
Der Reihe nach: Sounds und Verarbeitung sind Boss like einfach gut. Der eingebaute Mini Lautsprecher bringt erstaunlich satt die Percussion Sounds bei rein akustischer Spielweise rüber. Endlich mal ein Drum Roboter, den man auch ohne eingeschaltete PA oder Amp nutzen kann. Über die PA kommts auch richtig gut. Die Vielfalt der Rhythmen und Instrumente ist ordentlich und ausreichend. Sogar brauchbare Shuffle Pattern sind dabei. Die habe ich bei vielen Drumcomputern und auch neueren Apps leidlich vermisst. Die Auswahl bei 3/4 und 6/8 Pattern ist bescheidener, reicht jedoch auch fürs Wesentliche. Geeignete Kombinationen für Songs können dann in leider nur max. 50 Favoriten gespeichert werden. Dann gibts noch einen Fußtaster Anschluss für zwei Taster, mit denen viele Funktionen während des Spiels gesteuert werden können. Z.B. Start/Stop, Tap Tempo, Instrumente zu- und wegschalten und vieles mehr. Tolle Sache, aber hier liegt mein größter Kritikpunkt. Die Zuordnung der Fußtaster ist global und lässt sich nicht auf die Favoriten mitspeichern. Nun will ich aber nicht bei jedem Song die gleiche Einstellung. Mal möchte ich Tap Tempo, beim nächsten Song dann bestimmte Instrument zuschalten und dann wieder einzelne Instrumente direkt triggern. Da haben die Entwickler leider nicht zu Ende gedacht bzw. vergessen, die Praktiker zu fragen. Normalerweise werden solche Versäumnisse bei modernen Geräten mit einem Firmware Update via USB erledigt. Hier liegt aber das nächste Manko vor. Es gibt keinen USB Anschluss und damit auch keine Möglichkeit eines Updates. Besserung ist also leider nicht in Sicht. Schade.

+ Sounds und Qualität
+ Patternauswahl
+ eingebauter Lautsprecher
+ Bedienung
+ Batteriebetrieb (Lagerfeuertauglich ?)

- Fußtasterzuordnung nur global
- kein USB
- keine Update Möglichkeit
- nur 50 Favoriten

Bin noch nicht sicher, ob ich das Teil behalten werde. Für den Live Einsatz sind uns 50 Favoriten und die globale Fußtasterzuordnung einfach zu wenig. Zum Üben und Jammen und reinen Privatgebrauch auf jeden Fall ein toller Spielpartner (Edelmetronom ?). Für den Preis hätte Boss schon eine USB Schnittstelle spendieren könne. Bin neugierig, ob die Konkurrenz dieses Konzept aufgreift und dagegen hält. Vielleicht gibts ja auch von Boss mal eine V2...
