DR-3: Playing Patterns Automatically

Tags: dr-3
In Auto mode you can automatically play a pre-programmed series of patterns belonging to the current style, leaving your hands free to play along on another instrument. Here’s how to use Auto mode.

1. With playback stopped, press AUTO so it’s lit—you’re now in Auto Mode.

2. Turn the VALUE dial to scroll through and choose one of the various preset styles.

3. Press INTRO/START to start playback from the beginning of the song. As each pattern plays, its button lights. The song continues playing over and over until you end playback.

4. To stop playback, press ENDING/STOP—at the end of the current pattern, the Ending pattern plays and playback stops.
