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
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.
