Incredible machine!! Tons of flavors, small, and very easy to use as well. Waaay beyond the DR-660!! I dumped my R8MkII since this puppy does the job so much better. Get one slightly used for less than $300 and you wont be disappointed. It KILLS the ER-1 as well (which I also dumped back in '99). Great ethnic drums and just about anything else you can imagine is in there too. TONS of user storage space. This baby kicks !!

I played around with this in Guitar Center after reading how great this machine is suppose to be. Maybe it was a lack of my knowledge about this unit, but I went throught all the kits (I believe ther were like 125 or so, may be more, but I saw plenty of empty user banks more than than anything. Like I said, it may be because I've never used any of the newer boss drum machines, but I was expecting twice the 'waveform' power over other drum machines, and I didn't see it. The sounds overall sounded decent, but for almost $400.00, I would go with the electribe (and I don't own either machine, so I'm not trying to give props to something I don't own.) Actually, seeing all the BS that these companies are putting out, your better off saving your cash, downloading sampes of the net, and creating your own sounds.. cos your going to edit these ones anyway. If I did have to buy a newer boss machine, I'd go with the dr-660 (which at least comes with an extra output) It did seem like a nice machine tho, just not worth 400 bux.

DR-770 is incredible. It's limits are those of the users imagination. The kind of music I write is around Foo Fighter, Tonic, and Vertical Horizon. I use the DR-770 to write actual songs vs. a dance or beat mix. (Although, I have written a few beat songs because they are so fun to do. I highly recommend the DR-770 to anybody with any style of music. I have no musical training or drum training, and my stuff turns out great.

Jus got mine used for around $275, so im real happy bout that. I've owned the 550, 550mkII, 660, and now the 770, and i must say that the series gets better every time. The amount of ROM samples onboard is staggering, thats what made me choose over the ER1..the Er1 is more of a VA drum machine, so it was kinda weird for me..plus my bandmate has one, so i jus use his whenever i feel like it.. the 770 has massive user storage memeory, although i think i may never use it..all in Midi sequencer memory for me..also i wish that Dr's should have the programming interface that the 550's had, place a dot on the grid..similar to an XoX fashioned sequencer..with the 660 and 770 you basically have to think of it as notation, and without a visual aid (ala cakewalk) i couldnt do it..Theres this freeware program called TrXoX that is a XoX style drum sequencer for Windows, and ive been using that..it works very very nicely indeed..Like i said, the amount of Onboard ROM sounds is incredible, and theres something to fit the bill no matter what..Love it!!
