OVERVIEW

The most advanced compact rhythm machine yet!

It offers a powerful sound engine; twice as much built-in memory as its predecessor, the DR660; and 4 times as much memory as other compact drum machines in its price range. The DR-770 also incorporates such great features as new patterns; expanded sound-shaping controls; 400 presets and 400 user patterns including rock, pop, fusion, jazz, Latin, dance, world, and standard styles. 64 preset drum kits and hundreds of individual drum sounds are available. A huge 100,000-pattern memory gives you plenty of room. Built-in effects include 5 types of reverb, 2 types of flange, and 2-band EQ. New ambient control permits 16 global choices for overall drum sound. A Quick Search function allows easy pattern locating by musical category. It's a cutting-edge, high-quality machine for a price that is amazingly affordable.

I must admit that this is a truly great helping tool for creating and editing drum beats and patterns (No waiting for the drummer to show up is a good plus also) I would recommend it to others. Still, there are a few annoying points to this unit. The first and most obvious one to me is the lack of internal lighting. Second, is the small size of those words that indicate which mode you're in, very hard to read. The delete button should be apart from the others to lessen the risk of mistakes. Maybe downsizing those knobs and beefing up the size of the screen would keep this unit just as attractive. But most of all... what a delight to hear!

I am a drummer that purchased the DR-770 to use in a live situation as 1) A melodic metronome, and 2) for live accompaniment. The BIGGEST downfall of the unit is the display. There isn't much contrast and it is hard to view even in normal lighting conditions. On a dark stage, this will be hard to see, if not impossible in some cases.It is also limited as far as footswitch functions. Cannot advance songs via footswitch.The DR-880, due to be released shortly, addresses these two issues.Other than the two downfalls mentioned, the unit is OK. It is very easy to use after reading the manual one time. The sounds are typical Roland E-drum sounds. Nothing outstanding, but they will certainly work for my situation. If you are looking for the most realistic drum sounds for recording purposes, you might want to keep searching but also plan on spending a lot more money than the DR-770 goes for. Would be great for the project studio, or some pre-production work. The overall build (plastic case) seems a bit fragile, too. The unit seems to have been built more for the studio guy who will always see it in good lighting, and won't be lugging from venue to venue.

I LOVE IT!!!

By KeysMaster

from Corozal, Belize

I just bought a Boss DR-770 from a friend of mine and this thing's great. I have been a user of drum machines for quite a while having used all different types with the last one being a Boss DR-660. The 770 has better sounds to me because when I use sounds like the triangle I can actually hear the "metal" in it.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Very crisp sound and very fun to play with...easy to use as well and makes any type of music that much easier than having to go find an actuall drummer...this is a fine replacement for the real deal....

Great product, but some minor dislikes.

By guitarist7796

from Japan

I would like to be able to keep the same drum sound through different changes. It changes to the manufactures presets when I throw in a fill. Maybe you can change that, but I don't know how.
