Boss DR-550 MkII Dr. Rhythm

Boss DR-550 MkII Dr. Rhythm
This is a great sounding machine Early NIN ???
Nice for techno, rap and industrial. The Mark II model dates from 1992.
The Mark I is from 1990. 
It's small and runs on batteries. A very underrated machine. You can still find these puppies for under $100 on the bay.

She was my old workhorse that I bought back in the 90s.
I used to program beats on this while going to uni lectures via the bus.
....there is automatic quantizing (for when the bus jolted to a sudden stop).

Sadly there is no midi out. There is MIDI sync in so you can hook it up to other sequencers.

There are a number of time signatures ie 4/4 3/4 2/4 etc
The Mark II has pretty much got the whole 808 kit and some 909 sounds.
The samples sound very good (44khz). You can alter their Decay, Color, and Pan.
