I've got a Boss Dr Rhythm dr-550 at the moment (yeah i know i could flog it as an antique!) but I want to upgrade. Basically use it for home recording into a Korg PXR 4. What other drum machines do you guys out there use? I'm fairly confident at programming it but just want something with better sounds and options. I have my own bass and can get the bassline job done so a drum machine with bass options isn't a requirement but maybe a luxury. Any feedback would be welcome.
Hydrogen is a great open source program.
Thanks for that, I have tried it but not sure if its right for me, thanks anyway. Anyone got the new Boss Drum machine DR 880 (i think!) what is it like?
