About This Product
Combining classic sounds and high quality with modern features and functions, the Roland TR-8 Rhythm Performer is an unprecedented piece of equipment of its kind. Blending together the great TR-808 and TR-909, the TR-8 offers the user a rhythm machine unlike any other. Built using Roland's Analog Circuit Behaviour technology, the TR-8 Rhythm Performer delivers unbridled control and flexibility, not to mention dedicated Tune and Delay knobs to allow the user the ability to explore sounds like never before. For any music producer favouring classic drum machines, the TR-8 is the ultimate instrument needed for your collection. The newly developed ACB technology allows a faithful recreation of tonality and behaviour, as well as obsessive attention to detail. Featuring a 16-step sequencer including a variety of A and B pattern variations and the ability to record to steps and play instruments in real time, the TR-8 Rhythm Performer is a groove-injected item of gear that offers versatility and durability with flair.
