Great simple use!

The KR Mini has a whole set of patterns, genres, and pads but its in a simple to use product. Is it a high-end drum machine? Nope. It's a great little device, simple to use, for under $80. I use it instead of a metronome and play it through the aux on my Vox Mini5 or my little Vox AP-2 when practicing or improvising. The speaker is pretty good for the compact size and I have it playing out loud when I use my AC10C1 Vox. Works great.

Very satisfied..

This rhythm machine is just what I've been looking for. It meets all of my recording needs. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

Works well for regaining rhythm

Very clean and simple. I used this with a practice drum pad. After enduring several strokes, I couldn't even do a drum roll with my right hand. It would just go limp. Within one hour of practicing with this rhythm machine and practice pad, I was able to do tight drum rolls. Also, I could by the end of the day, I could match most of the rhythms well. I was very surprised how much this helped and how quickly I improved. I got this after discussing with my tech Ryan Clapper. Thank you Ryan again.

Best investment I've made .

I have trouble with my timing while playing piano and this little machine is perfect. I have been told that I'm showing a 100% difference in the way I sound. The basic metronomes make me crazy but with this korg I feel like I have a drummer right next to me to keep me on the right rhythm.

This thing is a "little monster"...

Couldn't believe how fast it got here. Then, after I cranked it on, got another surprise. Couldn't believe what this thing can do and how easy it is to operate.
