BOSS DR-3 Dr. Rhythm Announced at NAMM

Posted Jan 16, 2003 at 12:00am
BOSS announced the new DR-3 Dr. Rhythm at NAMM. A compositional tool and flexible jamming partner, the DR-3 boasts some of BOSS' best drum, percussion and bass sounds--complete with new TSC (Total Sound Control) for easy sound editing--plus new Rhythm Progressions featuring multiple variations for creating realistic drum tracks.

The DR-3 is for guitarists and songwriters who want to spend less time programming and more time making music. With onboard Rhythm Progressions, it's easy to create a track by choosing from 100 Preset or 100 User styles. The DR-3's eight panel buttons can then be used to switch between different sections of a song--Intro, Verse, Fill and Ending--while selecting from three different variations per section. The result is a more natural-sounding drum track that won't get repetitive.

Of course, the DR-3 offers velocity-sensitive pads and realtime/step recording for creating up to 100 User styles. And the sounds are some of the best BOSS has to offer. In total, there are 120 drum and percussion sounds and 12 bass sounds. Tweaking a drum kit is now more intuitive than ever, thanks to BOSS' new TSC (Total Sound Control) with Sound Shape function. With this feature any drum kit can be customized using 3-band compression, parametric EQ and a unique Ambience effect.

The DR-3's footswitch input is great for jamming, and makes it easy to control functions like Intro/Start, Ending/Stop, Verse change, Variation On/Off, Loop On/Off and more. A choice of AC or battery power allows the DR-3 to be used at home or on the go.

Connections to the DR-3 include stereo RCA phone Line outputs, two additional 1/4-inch outputs (one of which can be used as a Headphone output)--plus a Footswitch input, MIDI In jack and AC inlet.
