    What's the easiest, cheapest drum machine out there to use? I'm kinda attracted to the old-school Yamaha RX11 and RX15's, but are there any other drum machines out there that are similar in functionality? I'm looking for something solid and really easy to use, find on ebay and pay less than $75.
  2. dont wanna hijack ur thread here, but wat is a drum machine?

    probably one of those Boss Dr. rhythm machines, or maybe one of those roland drum pads.

    The Roland drum pads (like the SPD-11 & SPD-20) aren't drum machines, they are just drum pads.
    You can't program them to play beats. To have them play programmed beats, you will need to use some additional sequencing software.

    No not those ones, I'm talking about those ones that are like circular pads and they have a little drum computer built in, and you hit the different pads and you get differnet sounds.


    That's what I was refering to....but I didn't realize the price $1000 never mind :p

    ZOOM MRT-3 Micro Rhythm Track is very affordable yet has very good samples and ability to save what you programmed.
