    Does anyone here know anything about the Korg KR Mini and/or the Korg Volca Beats?

    I am technically challenged when it comes to things like that, so I want a simple way to set up drum patterns. I have had the DR Rhythm for a long time and I never figured out how to adequately program my own drum patterns into it.

    I just need it for practicing and composing. The Volca beats sounds great but appears to be even harder to figure out than what I already have. The Mini appears to be limited, but probably all I need.

    Any thoughts?
  2. No experience with those devices, but if you already own an iOS device you can get a ton of easy to use drum machines on the cheap. I use my 4s for exactly that purpose
