yoTrakkz's review"classic drum machine"

Boss DR-110 Dr. Rhythm Graphic
If you play electric guitar and don't own one of the Boss DR 110 drum machines then you are missing out big time. The drum and bass sounds are great as well as the guitar effects. There is a huge amount of flexibility with this unit... from customizing your guitar tone & effects, to creating your own drum & bass kits... its a very deep unit. But that doesn't mean it isn't fun or easy to use. In fact, the only downfall I've had with this unit is that I just lose track of time playing with it. If you are learning how to play guitar, then this unit will help you so much. For instance, there are some great patterns that help you embrace scale modes like the major scale.


The fact that you can dial up a pattern, instantly set the key & tempo, and then jam along with it using great guitar sounds makes the unit worth the money, but it can do a whole lot more. And if you like playing with those long, trippy delays, well, the DR110 keeps the delay in time with the song, so you can base the delay off rhythm rather than milliseconds (but both options are available). Every guitar instructor/school should have one of these available for their students.


Great sounds all around, patterns are realistic and this component gives all the versatility you will need. The ability to change the kit or tempo to a pattern makes this machine priceless. Adding a baseline is a bonus amd the sounds are all there.
What do you want from a drummer, and a bass player? To show up on time. Machines always there, waiting. To keep a beat and not miss a note. The machine is spot on. When playing smaller gigs, you don't have to worry about needing extra space for a drum set and bass amp. Plus you get all the money.


Every guitar player that wishes they had a drummer and bass player to jam with to help push their playing should have one of these. I love it.

Boss DR-110 Dr. Rhythm Graphic
In broad terms the features are:

A box with analog rhythms small 1983 size battery-operated or power. The battery life seems very good (better than a Volca for example).

5 non-editable sounds (kick, snare, clap, ride, open and closed hihat). No separate volume, there are, however, a knob that allows to dose if we want more or less of the snare torque or foot rest (hh, clap etc.).

A level of focus, its volume is changed by a knob.

16 user memory patterns (16 standards).
Possibility of measures which not less than 16 (12 steps).

Two audio outputs:
- A standard jack format that can also become an input for an example guitar (the famous Roland P-Bus).
- Format a mini jack (3.5).

No MIDI or DIN Sync synchronization, however there is a trig out (minijack format) sending pulses on accents.

The tempo is managed by a wheel without bpm indication on the LCD screen.

Most functions are directly accessible from the front, some necessities a "hold" and are screen printed very clearly.

No "swing" function as the 909, for example.


The DR110 is very simple to use and you can create your own patterns with just minutes of training.

Those familiar with the series will find Roland quickly their brand, the sequencer is very intuitive. We can compose their own pace using two methods: the traditional "tap" and the equally classic "step". The "Tap" does not require additional explanation, however dwell for a moment on the "step" slightly different than its big sister the TR606. The measure will appear on the LCD, the instrument is selected by pressing it and then enters a note with the "start" when the "stop" off a note. A bit laborious on paper yet it is a very simple and quick method to compose their sequences.

The DR110 is a tool designed for the musician, and it shows! A very simple and intuitive user interface that allows programming rhythmic easily.


Of course the sounds were realism that name. They are limited (no possibility of editing, not separate outputs to individually treat).

The only two possibilities of expression offered by the machine are searching the side of the accent adjustable volume, and the famous knob to control the torque balance clear up cash. Not a panacea, but better than nothing.

Despite its limitations the DR110 yet pulls out of the game. The sounds are excellent offer for anyone seeking an analog color. Certainly the foot is not the heaviness of the TR808 and TR909 one (it is still widely usable), but the sound has a real charm. We appreciate the excellent HiHats, snare relatively dry and snappy (eg explodes nasty snare of Volca Beats) and excellent clap. In outline, the sounds are similar to its big sister TR606, if you lose the toms of the latter, we gain a clap!

She will speak marvelously in a synth-pop context or downright electro (Planet Rock).
Do not ask him to be realistic or quoted parameter gas plant but conversely it shines in its simplicity and its sounds are excellent for those who search this grain there.


Bought there about a month, the DR110 immediately been integrated into a composition.

The absence of or DIN MIDI Sync and tempo indication synchronization is a major obstacle to its integration into a set in most cases, however there are also many current machines compatible with its synchronization "trig out" on accent.
So you can synchronize (with DR110 in master necessarily) very simply focus on the series volca Korg, the monotribe or the Microbrute Arturia (tested and approved with all).
If you want all machines play a measure on the same tempo, however, it will place an emphasis every two steps (in place at all on an 8 so far) to perfectly synchronize the DR110 and Korg (Korg advance two not to each data pulse). Otherwise (eg 6 accents) you might have the impression that the machines are out of sync. This apparent failure can also be a source of creativity and give your original groove melodic sequences.

Other defect, the focus generates some noise (it is audible if no note is played), but nothing dramatic once the machine placed in a mix.

I like the DR110 is a small drum machine that does not look like much but it's very simple and intuitive to use. It sounds great, close enough for a TR606 but loses some important functions (DIN Sync and individual volume). However less than a third of its argus Roland equivalent, it is a very interesting cheap option especially if you have equipment that can synchronize to a trig.

I have a number of drum machines and I think it is a good second choice. I do not recommend first MIDI fault intention. One of the boxes cheapest analog rhythms of the market and yet it has a lot of charm, personality, a nice sequencer, and a function trig very interesting.

Boss DR-110 Dr. Rhythm Graphic
A pearl of machine that requires no less than being "coutquot;
no frills for this MODEL but a real analog sound ....
sequencer "roland" walking piles ...
and the famous P-BUS ....
for who loves the original ....


No need for manual machine with a 1983 ..........................


Sounds are analog electro, finally, it really cost the sounds of the DR-110 to make it a opinion.mais "pte" really !!!!!!


If we want a 10 instruments, one ZAPE, otherwise it costs a can, and the ratio quality / price on the box in his home studio !..............
