What can I Say, Roland made another classic. This drum machine

will go down in history!! very clean sounds and great effects.

I use it for jazz, r&amp;b, rock, you name it. I think its much better

than the R-8, unless you just got money to throw away!!!.

The R70 is by far the best I have seen, with a few reservations: a) The pattern ideas and variations are better examples of capability

than useful variations; ideas are too similar. Feel is hot and so is swing. b) From Rock1 through Rock3, R&amp;B Funk/Soul and Dance genres,

nowhere does one find any classic hard-rock nor metal. What I

would give for Led Zep. or Bowie or Winters genres! Besides, the

Instrument selection is there, just no genre to fit their intended sound. c) Similarly, what ever happened to fusion jazz, and instrumental jazz like

Jean-Luke Ponte, or Joe Satriani? The Jazz-1 through 2 genres have

no variation compared to Rock1-Rock3.

There are amazing results from high-speed genres, slowed way down to accomodate some of these holes, and overall, I am having a blast -- even

after six months of use. Bravo Roland!

The Roland R-70 has been my only drum machine for about 4-5years and I have to say that it is the best I've ever seen. Probably if i worked with vintage 909's or 808 kits I would change my opinion but as far as the R-70 goes it's usefull and user friendly.

I think this is an extremely intelligent machine. The drum sounds are top of the line and you have so many to choose from. The bass guitar sounds are kind of cheezy but the drums make up for it. This machine is getting harder and harder to locate now that its been discontinued. An excellent machine, this blows away the Boss Dr660.
