Tags: rhythm,kits,play,br-864,drum
A drum kit is a variety of rhythm instrument sounds collected in a single set; the BR-864 includes nine internal “preset drum kits.” In addition, you can also put together an additional five original “song drum kits.” Song drum kits are saved to individual songs on memory cards. The drum kit instrument sounds are used in the performance of the arrangements and patterns.

Use the following procedure to play the drum sounds in the BR-864:

1. Make sure performance of the song is stopped, then press [RHYTHM PAD] repeatedly until the indicator is lit or flashing.

2. Press REC TRACK [1/5]–[4/8], [V-TRACK] and [TAP] to input the drum sounds.
