Organic rhythm accompaniments for unplugged acoustic musicians

Summer NAMM Show, Nashville, TN — BOSS (Booth 723) has introduced the DR-01S Rhythm Partner, a fun new instrument that provides percussion backing for acoustic guitarists and other acoustic musicians. The DR-01S features a powerful integrated sound system, and comes equipped with ready-to-play rhythm patterns that complement unplugged acoustic instruments. Compact, battery-powered, and simple to use, the go-anywhere DR-01S makes playing acoustic music even more enjoyable and inspiring.  

Unlike other rhythm machines that are designed for electronic and pop music applications, the DR-01S is a unique product specifically designed for acoustic music. Backed by decades of percussion development by BOSS and Roland, the DR-01S contains a wide variety of organic acoustic sounds derived from high-end products.

Via an intuitive interface, DR-01S users can access simple patterns and variations that are optimized for acoustic music styles. It’s also possible to add or subtract instruments – for example, shaker, tambourine, bongos, congas and more – on the fly. Dedicated buttons are on hand to quickly adjust volume and tempo, and to add a count-in before the accompaniment starts. The DR-01S also includes a standard metronome for basic music practice.

The DR-01S is equipped with a sophisticated audio system that produces big, full sound from a small footprint. An Aux In jack allows users to play backing music from a smartphone or other device, while a Line Out jack enables connection to a larger sound system. The DR-01S also supports optional footswitches for start/stop, tap tempo, and triggering sounds.
