The BOSS DR-01S Rhythm Partner is a first for acoustic musicians, a virtual percussionist designed specifically for accompaniment. The DR-01S is filled with organic percussion sounds that perform simple grooves for jamming and performing over wherever you are. It's not just for vocalist and acoustic guitar players though, pianists, violinists, and players of any other acoustic instruments will love the BOSS DR-01S Rhythm Partner.
Perfect performance partner
Whether you're practising at home, jamming with friends, or performing to an adoring crowd, the beauty in playing an acoustic instrument is that it can be done anywhere you wish. The easy-to-use DR-01S interface is delightfully simple, so you can get up and running in no time. Dedicated buttons enable you to all up beats and variations, with the ability to layer up to seven instruments simultaneously for unique patterns. To make things even better, up to 50 of your favourite patterns can be saved for recalling later - and you can add a count-in before it starts to give you the nod. For a flawless performance, you can even fade out the groove for a professional finish.
BOSS have drawn from their vast wealth of knowledge with regard to electronic sound creation and development, which the DR-01S has advantageously benefitted from. A large arsenal of acoustic percussion sounds are on board, including: shakers, maracas, tambourines, congas, bongos, bells, cajon and so much more. A full drum kit is at your disposal, which incorporates both acoustic and electronic sounds making it ideal for rocking out too.
Impressive output in a small footprint
The DR-01S boasts a powerful integrated audio system that oozes warmth that blends seamlessly with your instrument's natural timbre. BOSS' innovative design, custom speaker, and highly efficient amplifier deliver a remarkable sonic output. When you're out and about, the DR-01S sings exquisitely. When you're taking to a larger stage, the line out connection allows you to plug into an acoustic amp or PA system for maximum output.
The hands-free option
Though everything you need is within easy reach across the front panel, why break up a performance when you're mid-song? Thanks to the team at BOSS, you can connect one or two optional footswitches, which execute a plethora of control functions to ensure the dynamism of your performance remains unblemished. Not only that, but you can literally tap out beats as you perform thanks to the ability to trigger any percussion sound by foot.
