BOSS announce the successor to the DR-550 mkII Dr. Rhythm - the DR-670 Dr. Rhythm. This new drum machine incorporates the waveforms and patterns of the DR-770, while adding features: velocity-sensitive pads, a new Bass part, footswitch control of start/stop and fill-in’s, plus Roland’s popular Direct Pattern Play function for triggering patterns on the fly from the drum pads. While the DR-670 features new velocity-sensitive pads and a large LCD with fixed tempo display, most notable is the all-new sound engine derived from the DR-770. In total, there are 255 drum and percussion waveforms grouped into 64 Preset and 64 User kits. In addition, the DR-670 features a new Bass part for programming basslines using 16 distinct sounds including Finger Bass, Slap Bass, Acoustic Bass, Pick Bass and more. The DR-670 also sports 200 Preset patterns that are programmed to “capture the nuances of a real drummer” and cover a wide range of styles from Rock and Pop to Fusion, Jazz, Latin, Dance, World and more. And with the DR-670’s Direct Pattern Play function, any of these patterns can be instantly selected using the drum pads. Up to 200 User patterns can also be programmed using the onboard sequencer. And to make programming basslines more intuitive, the DR-670’s drum pads are arranged in bass guitar fret format. Preset and User patterns can then be easily chained to create up to 100 Songs. Connections to the DR-670 include 1/4-inch stereo outputs, a stereo Headphone output (stereo mini-jack type), Pedal Switch input, plus MIDI In and Out jacks.
