Re: Drum machine set up for looping rack

I used to have a DR-5, too.  Couldn't you set up a drum kit that had two identical (or different) sets of sounds, but with one set panned hard left and the other panned hard right?  As long as the time signature was the same for both rhythms, they could both play at the same time.  You can make a beat on one side while the other side is playing, and then crossfade it in.  It's a great idea.  I had to use two different drum machines to do this. Three, actually. :^)

I also own a DR5. It does not allow for seperate rhythms playing
continuously on left and right sides. You can program (x) amount of
measures of one pattern, then (x) amount of measures of another pattern
and pan them respectively.
