Overview

Cramming exacting emulations of the classic TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines into one sleek package might seem impossible to analog purists, especially when fitting that same box with even more sounds and functionality -- but everyone owes it to themselves to check out the Roland AIRA TR-8 Rhythm Producer and become a believer. Create new kits by mixing elements from the TR-series drum machines, punch your performance in with the old-school step sequencer, and tap into a world of control simply not available on the 808 or 909.

    The TR-8 is a drum machine plain and simple. You can record in real time or use "TR" recording. The reverb and delay effects sound good and are fun to control.
