I love this little box of fun. It's not pro-quality and isn't advertised as such. It's meant to be fun and it is.
the sounds are decent and for a small band or individual wanting cheap basic live backing or backing for rehearsal it will do just fine.
I use it for personal jamming and a little recording. (great result with eq / reverb / compression.)
The rhythms are basic and don't vary wildly from preset to preset... the fills are as fun and kitsch as the main rhythms and kick in every 2 bars.
programming your own beats and making chains is easy enough (though it did take me a few reads of the manual to figure it out at first)
there is a small degree of velocity sensitivity which is useful.
My only bug bear is I would have liked to have seen a WALTZ selection like on old analogue machines... but never mind.
like those analogue machines, there are some jazz presets which you will never use.

I have read elsewhere that there is no tap / beat sync feature and no BPM setting.. which is true... would have been nice but as mentioned, it's not a pro machine... so not really an issue....what it is... is bloody good lo-fi fun. I love it.

oh, only slight grouch.(apart from no waltzes)..when you hit START there seems to be just a tiny (but noticable) delay til the beat starts, whereas with a foot switch it kicks in straight away.

I was looking for a simple drum machine which can provide me with diffrent paterns and typs of drums. It`s a great machine and you can even dial in your own preset.

Great thing is that you can buy an extension pedal (two of them), which can be used for footswitch to dial another diffrent drum pattern for chorus.

I use the Korg Rhythm for band rehearsal or at home for private exercise. The Korg offers you a in build speaker which is great for home use or an output to PA.

Only troubles were the handling with the machine. I needed some time how to play or change the presets, but once you get it, it`s preaty simple.

The build is very small and light so it alwas on the road with me.
