All in all a pretty good little drum machine for the money. However I bought mine without a manual, and can't seem to figure out how to save patterns, and drum kits. Whenever I turn it off everything resets to the original presets. Maybe it's an internal battery problem. If any one has a manual and wants to help me out mail me at

Comments About the Sounds:
Typical Boss samples, very nice but dry sounding. Effects definetly help this unit out. Has tr-909 and 808 samples.

(Thanks to Lasher for this info.)
and NeoSpeed for the pic
