I was always able to figure out the older versions of the boss dr rhythm I have played with many versions before the 660 and have never owned a manual. I even have the 660 figured out to a certain extent but I changed the sounds and now they sound distorted and horrible and what ever I did I can't figure out how to undo so I am ready to dispose of the miniscule piece of machinery. I am wondering if the problem is no manual or not having the original adapter? Its gotta be better to buy drum machines brand new...

i have made some professional records with it, doing mainly dance music. The emulation of 808 and 909 is quite good and the provision of separate outs is vital. The effects are not wonderful but surely usable. The instrument is very dynamic and the frequency response is wide and bright. The sounds are covering all the needs, featuring all the classic drum machine hits. My only criticism is that is possible to hear a little (very little) noise due perhaps to the converter. But in the "real" professional life there is no problem... i recommend it, it's a classic and, for now, roland has anything in the market that is beating this.

The Boss DR- 660 has impressed me with what it can do, having recently just purchased one, but I do not have a manual and it is limiting my creative juices. Pleas help me out by hooking me up with a manual and you will be rewarded.

All in all a decent box. I bought this off ebay cuz it was a good price and ive heard samples. Alot of people bitch about the sounds but i think they are pretty good esp after adding effects and whatnot. Anywho my main gripes are how this thing looks like (by its 4x4 button setup) that its going to be an easy programable 16 step sequencer. Tis not the case you gotta hit the FWD button to go on to the next step and (for me) i dont like how the steps are named. I guess they did this for more pro people than me, that just like to call it button 5 er whatever but heres how it goes 100, 124, 148, 172, 200 thats where on a 16 step sequncer would be button 1,2,3,4,5.. takes some getting used to no huge deal. but i also like to see when i hit a specific pad all the places that that pad are at and you cant unless you scroll through all the steps. Maybe im just to old school but i dont like it. After u get over it its pretty str8 forward and easy. But without the manual if u get one used like I did yer screwed cuz if yours is like mine yer gonna wanna chunk it out the window. It was set up for midi sync so it wouldnt do s*&@ besides fire pads when u hittem. Got the manual that was fixed in 2 secs. If you need a manual Just call roland there numbers on the web site they sell photocopies for 7 and real ones for 12 free shipping gets there in like 3 days. I searched everywhere no one has them online unless you wanna pay for them and its always more than roland charges. Hopefully this was somewhat helpful.
