Re: Drum machine set up for looping rack

I own a DR-5 and am over it- and unless you need the other tracks I would
reccomend you sell it- I borrowed a DR-770 recently- much better sounds,
more memory, roll/flam button, much better pads and sesitivity levels, drum
panning etc- If only the DR-5 were upgradable...

My $.02
