All-New, Comprehensive Drum Machine!From the "masters of drum sounds" comes the first new drum machine in over a year. Small in size and light in weight, this low-profile, easy to use Drum & Bass machine will go anywhere.
The range of drum kits built into the RT-223 is amazing. A total of 70 drum kits are available, with acoustic drum sounds for rock, R&B, funk, and jazz. Add an analog rhythm machine for Techno and Hip Hop. There are five human voice Beat Box style percussion kits and Ethnic percussion sounds.
A drum kit consists of 13 pads x 3 banks equalling 39 sounds per kit. Sound sources can be freely selected and assigned to the pads. Fine-tune parameters such as pitch, level, and panning to create original drum kits. The RT-223 can store up to 58 user-programmed kits. The Bass Machine lets users choose from electric bass styles such as Pick, Finger, and Slap. Or select Acoustic Bass, Synthesizer Bass, or one of the other bass sources, 12 in total. To create a bass line, users play the pads with assigned chromatic pitches just like a keyboard. A dedicated switch mutes the bass sound at any time.
From rock, jazz, and funk to club and house, the RT-223 comes with 440 drum patterns that can be used straight away. A large number of phrase variations including intro, fill-in, and ending patterns are also provided. By simply combining these, users can easily whip up a backing rhythms. Programming patterns is a snap, thanks to the touch-sensitive drum pads. The RT-223 records not only your timing, but also the dynamics of your finger work. You can create and store up to 511 patterns. The process is made even easier through visual cues provided by the self-lit pads and the FAST (Formula Assisted Song Translator) method.

by Steve Hardesty from NashvilleI'd call it a great machine if it was easier to program and zoom wasn't so cheap and they'd include a darn AC adapter. For this price it's ridiculous to have to buy the adapter separately. Having sa... read more [+]id all that though. Even though it's not easy to program, it is still heads and shoulders above the others on the market. The others are a NIGHTMARE to try and program. It is a good drum machine and it sounds great! close [-]
