Question about Boss Micro BR Digital Recorder
I have The Boss Dr-5 (Dr. Rhythm) Drum machine and my friend has the Boss BR-1180 CD recording device. I recently brought it over to his house to see if I could just plug it into the midi input and fire away but no such luck. Is there some way to make my drum patterns on the dr-5 play on the br-1180?
The beats you have programmed into the drum machine will not play through the midi cable. In order to do what you want you need to connect the audio output from the drum machine to the audio input of the br-1180. What you should then do is connect the MIDI out of the the br1180 to the midi in of the Dr5. This will allow you to start and stop the drum machine with the play button on the br1180. MIDI can be a complicated thing so be sure to RTFM about MIDI for both of your BOSS devices to understand what they can do to work together. Good Luck

Midi doesn't actually "make sound". If your trying to record the patterns you made on the DR-5 to the recorder you need to use an audio output(I don't remember if they are RCA or 1/4" on the DR-5.) The midi output would be used to"trigger sounds" in another device that has sounds built in, or you could also trigger sounds in a program that supports midi input.
