Boss DR-220A Drum Machine | Punchy and excellent

Published on Feb 1, 2019 Espen Kraft

"The small, but punchy Boss Dr.Rhythm 220A drum machine from 1985. Great value for money!
A quick overview and tutorial on how to use it after the demo track.

Tutorial and review starts at 03:04

The two Boss drum machines Dr. 220A and Dr. 220E were produced between 1985 and 1987. The TR-505 is a gloryfied 220A, but in reality the 220A is more punchy than the 505 and is excellent value if you can live with the mono output and no MIDI. Some parallell compression in the mix and the 220A is as punchy as a boxer on fire.
With trigger in/out it can be synced (or sync) with other gear."
