The DR-880 is a rhythm-programming powerhouse that’s loaded with world-class drum, percussion, and bass sounds from Roland’s famous SRX library. It also includes a stunning collection of original waveforms. You can get microscopic with the DR-880, but you also have the option of taking the simple route with its three EZ Compose buttons, which allow original patterns to be constructed without note-by-note programming hassles. Patterns can be taken deeper with the Groove Modify feature, where various groove and triplet feels can be applied. Ghost notes and fills can also be added automatically. Guitar and bass players can join the action by plugging directly to the DR-880’s Guitar/Bass Input jack, and playing through the built-in COSM Drive/Amp models and multi-effects.


Lets make some dub techno

...I was asking a 909 kick could sit well in an electronic ITB dub track could it...? stuff like OTT etc... a boss DR 880 would have enough real drum samples to make any amount of dub I should imagine, but a nice long pitched down 909 sample would make a nice kick I reckon...
