Of course there are the obvious limitations to a $400 drum/synth. If you know basic sound synthesis, then this machine can be manipulated into producing some decent sounds.I got mine for free, and love the fact that I can go everywhere making beats w/out the ac adapter. The kits can be made to sound as good as can be expected for the price. I haven't had hissing sounds in mine, and I don't think that I will use it along with my regular setup for live applications...unless for some underground small gathering. I would be a little hesitant to put my reputation on the line. Bottom Line: If you can't put in the money for what you ultimately need in your studio(adv.sampler, dependable sequencer, synth),this machine can really get you started for now. Yeah, and try not to take advice from closed minded users who complain about PRESET sounds and patterns. Some of the best elec. music comes from working around the machines limitations, just trickin' it out.

IF you know your way around this box and can keep up with its sort of puzzle piece placement of effects such as alternate delay and flange effects its really fun. I recently played a gig with the box and the drum sounds get people moving.

i bought this machine cuz i was broke and wanted to start making beats quick. this is definatly not a professional box, but it is greatfor beginers. the fact that it is fully mobil means that it might be good to buy if you travel alot but still want to make beats. i was thinking that it would be a good toy to buy for your kid (probobly over ten) so they could start producing sumptin. ill probobly eep mine for a long time just cuz its fun and easy.

I'm a new Boss dr202. Does anyone knows if there is an editor or a link where i can download patches?

About the machine: Not the best synth i have but for the price is good. There is a big inconvenience: THE HISS NOISE! its level is too high indeed. Also i cannot record from Boss to Pc seq when i just push play button..i need to tap every drum to record on pc. The presets sux but the sounds are pretty good even for me that i make trance and this machine is not trance dedicated. Interface is good too. Looks cheep, but it doesnt matter

Some really silly reviews here for sure. This machine is big fun. Im not going to say its the best but for the $ the DR202 packs a seriously cool punch. Its actually a pretty deep machine if you know your way around it. Great budget device, but keep in mind this is a budget device. Not to be confused with high end gear. I bought mine 4 years ago and still enjoy using it. The fact that it is so small and uses batteries makes it indespendible to me for a scratch pad jammin device that i can take anywhere. I like it and have never had any problems with it after 4 years of use.
