5 Stars for Price & features! Best little rythmn & on portable Drum Machine for under $75 on the Market Today!!!
First Off, anyone who thinks they are getting something for $75 in this category & are expecting PRO TOOLS HD BOXED SET Quality, you are kidding yourself, & if you are having trouble with the product, read THE INSTUCTION MANUAL! LOL And A lastly it helps to put batteries in it even if you are using it through a different power source whether it's via phantom powered or ac adapter etc, bc this just helps enusre you have some sort of way of power for the machine & that it also helps it remember most of you customizing fills & stuff you've done on the go and with computer workstation for another example. Now is this product Flawless, NO, But is it better than what else is available on the market these days for any guitarist, musician, and anyone else whose entering the world of grove production as well as drum machines for the money? The Answer is YES!!! It's way better than any crappy zoom or or older Digitech guitar pedals that have very bland drum beats & patterns built in them to play with! THIS IS ALSO A GUITARISTS' DREAM & IDEAL Piece of Equipment that you can take on the Go and get Back that New inspiration to play & make or write new music to or with! The Out option is also nice bc if you have a loud amp you can plug it in to a Monitor or PA or your computer workstation for instance, or just use for practicing with out an amplifier late at night or on the go with the Battery powered option with it's built in speakers & actually for 2w speakers, it gets Much louder than one would typically expect for a typical 2watt speaker. Also my band's Drummer & I also love this thing for creating stuff in pro-tools & all other major audio engineering programs that are out there today for musicians to use bc we can make Both Experimental Stuff AS WELL AS actual NEW Backtracks of drums & rhythms to new songs we just created on the fly, & I can take home both a hard copy of the track on cd or a compressed mp3 or mp4 Itunes file on my ipod to plug in to my PA to practice with when my Drummer isn't around. IT IS also cool bc my drummer can save the new rythmns, beats, &fills he just made also on the Korg KR mini itself & also just use that if your on a tight budget & still practice guitar with to your new tracks. I highly recommend for any Guitarist & musician on A tight Budget to have a NICE Clean sounding (one of best to date sounding drum patterns & fills that beats all of Zooms G2-present drum tracks & as well as All of digitechs older way out of date sounding RP series pedals drum tracks too that aren't very real sounding untill you spend bank on a mediocre RP with ipad or ios device compatibility (that still requires you to spend A LOT more $ on additional add on packs & apps)! If you have a big Studio budget, then obviously you can get a $1,000+ rhythm /drum machine or very new high tech groove production item or items that will give you what a STUDIO WOULD TUPICALLY HAVE, but for those who travel a lot & those on a Tight Budget, Spend the $ on this MINI KR & you won't be disappointed at all! Just DON'T expect to get a (MSRP $1,000+ type of product by Raising the bar too high that Realistically speaking, you know that can never be met)! Give this little guy a chance! & besides You get a Free 2 year Warranty on it, so if something is not right, Sweetwater will have your back & help you make it right bc they are Real people not just typicall other companies that are just like SELL SELL SELL!). 4.9 - 5/ 5 Stars!!! Best on the market for the $ IMO!
