BOSS DB-90 Metronome Beat Patterns

(Edit: I found the list of these on the back of the device just now…)

I bought the Boss DB-90 metronome to help me with learning rhythms and practicing singing. It comes with 30 beat patterns, but those patterns are only represented as numbers on the unit, which is odd since they put words for many other items on the screen. *NOTE TO BOSS* How about changing that to make your great device even more useful? For a beginner looking to learn certain patterns, it helps to know that I have chosen the right one.

Took me a while to figure out from the manual what the patterns were, so here they are as a list:
(Press the Beat/Pattern button twice to get Pattern blinking, the large knob changes patterns, each slider then controls elements of that beat pattern.)
