Intro Count for SR 18

  • Question
  • Updated 6 months ago
I just got a SR 18 drum machine. I leaned on this form that the unit does not have a intro count into a song. (There is no 1, 2, 3, 4). This really makes the unit worthless for live play and rehearsal. How can I start the drum machine and start playing at the same time? I bought this because people really seemed to like it. So I must be missing something. How does everyone cope with the lack of an intro count?

Hello, Rex

Thanks for posting! 

I would recommend using a footswitch to Start/Stop the patterns from playing :) This way you can come in at the right time when playing in a live scenario. 

Here is the footswitch we recommend: 

Please see this section of the user guide on what functions you have with the footswitch:

Hope this helps!
