Probably not the hottest new deal, but the price of the Roland TR-8S has dropped significantly in recent weeks. Roland TR-8S is a hardware drum machine that features emulations of best-known vintage machines (TR-808, TR-909…) as well as the possibility to load samples.
TR-8S is currently available for 605€ instead of the initial release price of 734€ (18%).
Building upon the success of the TR-8, the Roland AIRA TR-8S Rhythm Performer combines the legendary sound, form, and function of the vintage TR-808, 606, 909, 707, and 727 rhythm machines with cutting-edge performance and live pattern manipulation capabilities to create a modern-day classic, well-suited for stage or studio. Build your dream kit with the onboard drum sounds, or peruse and layer Roland’s vast stereo sample collection to create original tones never heard before.
What’s more, the SD card slot allows you to import your own samples. Roland developed the Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, which faithfully recreates the tonality and behavior of true-analog circuits. With ACB, every detail of these original machines is captured, including the variations in tone that occur when multiple instruments are entered in accented steps.
