Roland's T-8 is a killer rhythm and bass machine for designing Roland-inspired sounds and sequences—great for engaging solo performances or complementary to other live performers. The compact yet feature-packed design sports six drum voices inspired by the greats from the 808, 909, and 606, alongside a bass voice for creating squelchy and acid-like tones from the classic 303-voicing. Because the T-8 uses Roland's patented ACB technology, you can be sure this digital recreation is near perfect to the original analog tones, and the inspiration continues into the TR-REC style sequencer taken from greats like the TR-8S and others. 32-step patterns can be chained in a variety of ways with up to 64 saveable patterns, and performance goes beyond typical with quick controls over loop size, reloading, and injecting velocity and probability to the pattern for unlikely rhythms. The unit is tied together with some amazing final delay and reverb for spacing out the sounds along with sidechain compression and overdrive to glue it back together. With complete audio and MIDI functionality over USB-C and as well as minijack connectivity, the T-8 from Roland is a brilliant little device that'll shake any dance floor in the right setting.
