Boss DR-550 Dr. Rhythm
back to the note below, I do not agree with the opinion posted certainly has aged but the DR550 offers sounds from the drum machine Roland R8 the only difference is on some sounds that are absent on DR and programming opportunities and better ergonomics necessarily on an R8. The sounds of the DR sound rather dry and it can be used on a piece or to work at home on a rhythmic parttern possibly on stage.
I put 7
we must see that at the time the programmable drum machines cheap there was not much apart from the DR550

Boss DR-550 Dr. Rhythm
The drum machine has 48 drum sounds changed to some degree (one can settle the decay and it has a wave filter)
the sounds are quite varied in style we have sonb more "natural" over other electro / hip-hop a selection of percussion (congas bells ...)
16pas a sequencer can be programmed for simple rhythmic
The BAR has a MIDI input of a stereo audio output (two mono jack), headphone output and a 9v power supply of between
you can also use batteries

UTILIZATION

The config is pretty tedious it often requires going through a key combination to access a desired function
are the very being can edit it does not matter whether compliqubr /> However the manual is in French and it is quite clear

SOUNDS

The sounds are rather pourave personally I find that most big banks are desperately short of low
to have multiple expresion (volume decay ...) must be the same programer are on different pad with different parameters

c is not really Byzantium

OVERALL OPINION

This drum machine is a simple instrument, it may possibly save your life one day or your drummer chop chikungunya or repeats's but ...
this is my first bar hardware, but I urge you to choose another model or use a PC if you want to use it as an instrumentalist has WHOLE
I bought the compulsively on a flea market it has served me well throughout the toy tle fact that it works on battery is a portable instrument) This now I used to make small Samples (sound weird or experience)

to conclude it's a nice toy if you have the opportunity to find one to buy the cheap, may serve you but do not put more than 50
it would be better with a track record of Pc and then pass a CD while you play

See prior reviews
It has an on / off switch, input, output, plus a 9V power supply input, classic!
The case is solid, tight fit, well in hand.
We regret that the biggest button boiboite is that of volume.
The display is very old school, you should avoid letting the sun or near a heat source!

UTILIZATION

This is my first BAR and frankly I'm disappointed. The issue is not so intuitive for the novice, it works by a combination of buttons and everything is very simple.
Example: If when you make your rhythm pattern you want to delete a sound, you have to press 3 buttons + the sound in question: a horror!
Unable to get quick look bad, not really plug and play!
The pads are called this quite pleasant to handle

SOUNDS

The sounds are very synthetic but the result is very satisfactory overall, there is no saturation!
The emphasis is very limited.
The top, I think it is the presets that are relatively thick and only there to act as a demo but useless unless you are making music at the Bungle or other group crossed!

OVERALL OPINION

I've had almost a year and I will separate because I can not get used to it but I think it comes from me, I must be stupid and D fail to me serve.
I would do not have that choice, no choice of BAR Boss seems all a little broken down according to the same operation.
However, for 80 euros is not too bad!
I'll put 4 and it's not bad!

Boss DR-550 Dr. Rhythm
On CHARACTERISTICS says it all. It does not rev high and therefore can get into a small backpack with no problem.

UTILIZATION

The manual is well done, plus it is not automatically translated franais. We then quickly "taken by the banch lectric sheet." It is a trend aa dtail but annoy me;)
It is very simple to use, within days he was well in hand.

SOUNDS

The sounds are suitable for my style zic, if not what does not replace a real drummer sounds are quite ralistes, even when it is necessary to say which has more than 10 years.
If you are looking for or do just SPECIFICATIONS trs synthetic is not the beast. Especially the change of sound is more than limit.

OVERALL OPINION

The uses of time for other work the ides of pieces, some patterns can be made in no time. If not made more than a decade it with me, and she made good points.
Exprience with this choice I do it again, but I think that currently, there must be even better for the same price (but I do not think it is still selling).

I must admit even when, especially since I pass "at all on PC", it remains more in its software because the box a little left on the shelf
August 1st I put some out of nostalgia and even when it no dung.

Boss DR-550 Dr. Rhythm
Midi in (not out) output mono, stereo
4 banks of sounds, 12 pads, sequencer ...
no effect section no matter when plugged into a rack.

UTILIZATION

Drum machine very easy to use, you can easily switch the manual!
the pads are fun to use.
one could say that given its size it is a drum pocket!
in my case, I enmenais in high school when I was a bushel, and I developed my patterns when I had time.
very playful.
I missed it, I recently bought a

SOUNDS

The sounds are realistic and of good quality and blend with most styles of music.

OVERALL OPINION

I kept it about two years before giving it to a friend. it's a great value for money machine.
desperately nostalgic for this toy, I ended up buying me one!

OVERALL OPINION
