I bought a DR880

Although its quite cheap looking, and is several shades cheaper that the last drum machine I bought, It has really impressed me...

I played with one a while ago and liked the fantom sounds, they seemed slightly gritty yet smooth.

I realised yesterday that the sequencer is complex enough to meet my needs, something which most machines are lacking nowadays.

All its missing is more outputs.

What about a backup device. I noticed in the spec's that it has a USB port, but I don't know if its a A or B. Can you backup your sequences to a USB drive with it? I don't think the original design allowed any kind of backup.

Yeah I think you can from what Ive read, but I'll have to try it myself to make sure. To be honest I think the USB could have offered more really, but it still does quite a bit.
