    Product information "Roland TR-8"

    With the new TR-8 by Roland music history is written again! This new cult machine includes both the TR-808 and TR-909 in one unit with high resolution audio engine (32bit/96kHz). The combination of 808 and 909 instruments in new kitts is now also possible, all instruments can be transferred individually to a DAW via USB audio.

    For the development of the TR-8, all details of the TR-808 and TR-909 sound generation were thoroughly analyzed and reproduced using the Analog Circuit Behavior technology. The Tune and Decay controls are available for each instrument, and the bass drum and snare categories have dedicated attack and comp controls. This guarantees a high degree of sound variability - from ambient percussion to dance grooves. Effects that can be defined per single step and the addictive "scatter" function stand for this new generation of rhythm composers.


    • Full reproduction of the classic TR-808 and TR-909 rhythm machines, based on original design spec sheets and detailed analog circuit analysis of many original TR machines, including Roland’s own pristine units
    • Newly developed Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology allows part-by-part analyses and faithful recreation of tonality and behavior, including the smooth variations of tone that occur when you work the controls of each instrument
    • Obsessive attention to detail, such as reproducing the original TR’s unique variations in tone that occur when multiple instruments are entered in accented steps
    • Authentic 16-step sequencer with faithful TR-REC behavior, including A and B pattern variations and the ability to play instruments and record to steps in real time
    • 16 stunning kits made up of 11 instrument types, including custom dream kits that use both TR-808 and TR-909 sounds
    • Large Tempo knob with Tap Tempo button and continuous Fine and Shuffle adjustment knobs
    • Control the intensity of the Accent function with a dedicated knob
    • Per-step reverb and delay effects with dedicated knobs
    • Mix sources connected to the External In jacks with built-in per-step Side Chain function for rhythmic ducking and gating effects
    • Scatter lets you freak and tweak your grooves with real-time control and perfect sync
    • 7 segment, 4 character LED display and 16 per-step pads with bold, full-color LEDs
    • Real-time pattern creation up to 32 steps with on-the-fly step count adjustment
    • Rec/Play modes have been eliminated, enabling seamless switching between step input and real-time pattern making and performance
