Boss DR-01S Rhythm Partner Virtual Percussionist

Designed for Acoustic Performers/Musicians


Boss DR-01S Rhythm Partner Virtual Percussionist

The Boss DR-01S is the world's first virtual percussionist which is designed to go alongside acoustic musicians. It is set aside from drum and rhythm machines by its fully organic percussion sounds that perfectly fit with the no-plug design. It features a very user-friendly interface with simple and understandable controls and buttons, as well as excellent portability with the battery-powered operation allowing it to be taken anywhere also due to its compact size.

When experimenting, jamming, or performing with the Rhythm Partner, you may find some sounds and mixes you really like, so to cater for this, you can save up to 50 favourites to use at any time. You can layer up to 7 instruments together to create your wanted sounds, and to further perfect your desires, you can make accurate adjustments to the volume, tempo, and time signature in just a few touches. Another feature that can be utilised is the ability to add a count-in before the rhythm begins, and fading out at the end of the rhythm to add finishing touches to your creations.

On the sound side of things, the integrated audio system produces warm and full sound to blend in with your acoustic tones. It combines an innovative cabinet design with a custom-designed speaker and a high-efficiency amplifier for great sound from such a compact and portable package. You can even take it on stage using the Line Out to connect your Rhythm Partner to an acoustic amplifier or PA system. Finally, by connecting 1 or 2 optional footswitches, you are able to operate hands free. choose from the various assignable functions, such as start/stop, tempo up/down, pattern variation, and many more. You can also trigger nearly any DR-01S percussion sound by foot, making it great for manually tapping out beats as you play.
