Not Just Another Rhythm Box
When I first heard of the DR-01S Rhythm Partner by Roland I wasn’t immediately excited about it: my thoughts were that it was probably just another “rhythm” box with pre programed sounds, nothing that would really appeal to an electronic musician. Then I started to think of the possibilities that something like this could offer to my performance. There’s plenty of drum rhythm boxes that are great to use as a backing track while one shreds on a guitar or ukulele, but most of these boxes have a lot of the same sounds, no machine has ever really dedicated to the variety of acoustic sounds like the DR-01S has.
