Build the backbone of your beats

The T-8 marries portability and convenience with studio-quality power and iconic sounds. Its comprehensive I/O allows you to control the T-8 from an external controller, run it alongside a DAW, pair with any of its Aira Compact cousins, and more. The sounds may be strong, but they’re bolstered by the suite of onboard FX and processing parameters, including overdrive, sidechain compression, and dedicated reverb and delay knobs. Dive deeper into the programming to take advantage of step-loop, pattern shift, and probability features, adding a dynamism that’ll evolve your grooves in any musical situation. Real-time recording of note values, accents, and slides, on bass lines let you color your sequences across upwards of 32 steps, with 64 total capturable patterns. Let the intuitive form factor guide you through an odyssey of beats, bass, and iconic Roland sound, all in a module that fits in your pocket.
