Roland Performance Drum Machine, TR-8

The Roland TR-8 is a performance rhythm machine that features all the authentic sounds and effects of the classic TR-808 and TR-909 rhythm machines, but with new, enhanced technology and capabilities. The TR-8 features 26 stunning kits made up of 11 instrument types, including custom dream kits that use both TR-808 and TR-909 sounds. Each drum instrument features a fader. There is a Large Tempo knob with a Tap Tempo button, as well as continuous Fine and Shuffle adjustment knobs. There are also dedicated knobs for controlling the intensity of the Accent function, and for applying per-step reverb and delay effects. Additional features include Tune and Decay knobs and controls for the Bass Drum and Snare Drum, such as Attack, Snappy, and Comp, and mix sources connected to the External In jacks, with built-in per-step Side Chain function for rhythmic ducking and gating effects

The TR-8 has a 7-segment, 4-character LED display and 16 per-step pads with bold, full-colour LEDs. The Scatter function lets you freak and tweak your grooves with real-time control and perfect sync. You can also create real-time patterns up to 32 steps, with on-the-fly step count adjustment. Rec/Play modes have also been eliminated to enable seamless switching between programming and performance modes. The TR-8 is capable of real-time play of 4 different types of rolls (8th, 16th, VARI 1, VARI 2), and has per-instrument mutes. Pattern copy and pattern randomization are included for rapid, spontaneous creativity. There are two assignable analogue outputs and full parallel outputs via USB for total mixing flexibility.

The TR-8 is designed to work seamlessly with other products in the AIRA series, and in addition, you can connect the TR-8 to your computer via USB to send and receive both audio and MIDI data, including MIDI clock information for syncing with external devices and other AIRA units. You can also backup and restore your kit and pattern library via USB.
