    Many musicians wish that they could enjoy casually performing while being backed up by real rhythm patterns rather than just a metronome. Korg has responded to these wishes with the KR Mini rhythm machine. It features a simple design that eliminates all complex functions, looks that overflow with nostalgia and analog-like controls. Playing a rhythm pattern is easy as making selection and pressing play. A total of 60 diverse rhythm patterns and 120 fills are ready to accompany you. Easy, simple and compact, the KR mini can play its role anywhere.

    Easily play rhythm patterns!
    Just use the knob to select the musical style you want and press a button to start playing a rhythm! Since the KR mini is light-weight, can operate on batteries and has a built-in speaker, you can use it to provide a backing rhythm pattern wherever you are. It covers a wide range of genres, including 8-beat, 16-beat, rock and pop, with six patterns for each genre. Plus there are eight song patterns containing drum parts that are several measures in length. It's a must-have item that will be perfect not only for guitarists and bassists but also for wind/orchestra players and pianists.

    Connect rhythm patterns to create original rhythm songs!
    There's a Chain function that lets you easily create original rhythm songs by connecting preset rhythm patterns. It's also easy to create more complex rhythm songs; you can include fill-ins and specify the loop end location as well as the number of playback repetitions.

    Use the pads to play the drums! Ideal for finger drumming!
    The 16 pads are assigned to play drum sounds such as bass drum, hi-hat and cymbals. You can use these pads to enjoy finger drumming. The pads are velocity sensitive, so the force used to strike a pad will be reflected by the sound; letting you create even more realistic drum phrases.

    Although finger drumming has typically been done using a PC-based system with samplers and MIDI controllers, the compact KR mini, with its built-in speaker and battery-powered operation means that now you can enjoy performing on the street, outdoors, or anywhere you may be inspired. The KR mini is a necessity for any finger drummer.

    Pedal switch and headphone/speaker output for expansion
    An optional pedal switch lets you use your foot to start/stop the rhythm or to control fill-ins. You'll be able to smoothly control the KR mini while continuously playing your instrument. The KR mini also has a headphone/speaker output, so you can connect it to your PA system and play drum patterns from an external speaker. Use it with a guitar amp to create a simple setup for live performance. Rhythm Patterns (6 patterns for each genre *Not including songs): 8Beat, 16Beat, Rock, Metal, Pop, R & B, Jazz, Latin, Dance, User, Songs/Chain End

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Besides playing in a full band, I also do a lot of solo charity/nursing home gigs on an acoustic guitar. I was looking for a simple drum machine to give a little added spice to some songs and this little Korg KR Mini fits the bill perfectly. First, what it is not: It is NOT a $500 drum machine. It is NOT the best on the market, and most importantly of all, it is NOT expensive. Now, for what it is: A good little, easily carried, easy to use accompaniment for my acoustic country/oldies gigs. The sound is pretty good, when used through my Bose Compact, or a small keyboard amp, and there are enough patterns to utilize it for what I am doing with it. A common complaint about it by others is there is no way to measure beats per minute with the tempo knob, but if you simply practice a little with it, you will be able to intuitively find the tempo you want. I am pleased with it and it adds a bit to my acoustic shows.
