I have a (now rather old) Roland VS-1680 and Doggiebox is my drummer 
:)  For my set-up, the best technique _seems_ to be to assemble a basic 
percussion track in Doggiebox, export it as an AIFF, playback the AIFF and 
record it on the 1680, then record guitars, etc. on top of that.  The trick 
is that I often want to change the details of the percussion track as I 
work on the song (add fill here, extra cymbal there), but it's difficult to 
synchronize the start of play to rerecord the drum track directly (thus my 
MIDI feature requests some weeks back :)  It works out (at present) a 
little easier to simply slap a whole new AIFF over the original percussion 
track on the 1680 to get it on the machine and roughly in place, and then 
"nudge" the whole thing into synchronization with the other 
instruments.  It's still a little tedious, but not impossible.

But I haven't had a chance to experiment with this very much.
