Last year I bought from e Bay a drum machine, a Boss DR5.
I had heard its sounds previously which are very good and was told that it was simple to operate. Although I have dedicated very little time to it and lent it to a couple to people to figure out I have never used it or learned how to get it to work in the first place.
So now I'm looking for a great sounding drum machine that I can operate by hitting or taping which I can plug directly into my digital 8 track.
Anybody got any suggestions, from experience.

...the dr5 is the greatest songwriting/arranging tool ever invented, in my opinion.

i have two dr5s, and plan to buy as many more as i can afford. all you need to do is connect it to your 8-track via midi cables. easier said than done, of course, because now you have to learn midi. i hope its easier for you than it was for me! in fact, i still don't understand midi, and still don't know what i'm doing, but somehow i manage.

what you need to do is spend some serious time studying the midi section of the manuals that came with your dr5 and your digital 8-track. confusing as it is, the information is all there.

however, if you decide that you need a less complicated machine than the dr5, please contact me and i'll buy it from you.
