There will be a lot of moaning about the TR-8’s digital brains, and it’s likely that many will conclude that it sounds substandard purely for that reason. The reality is that it sounds fantastic.

It's been fascinating watching epic analogue vs digital debates develop all over the web since Roland starting teasing us with glimpses of its new TR-8 and other Aira products around a month ago.

This is a wonderful device combining the best of the early machines with new technology that updates it for the 21st century and gives it greater versatility and outstanding sound quality. I've found it great for bangin' techno and dubbed out down-tempo alike.

OK first off this was for a friend of mine, so a grain of salt might be needed. I've used his 808 so I knew how to operate this kind of easily. If you have had experience with the older models and you are looking to upgrade like my friend, he is extremely happy, get it.

Studio efforts have increased dramatically since adding this fun piece of gear to the family. Classic sounds with new applications, plain and simple. Never had this much fun with gear for so little money.

Tought to beat for realistic TR808/909 sounds, but crippled by poor design decicions. One problem is the lack of footswitch or MIDI control for changing patterns in real time. Another is extrememly limited storage capacity for patterns/kits.

    Great Vintage Sound, Lots of controls

    Too Limiting

Great concept, poor execution.

Product Description
The TR-8 is a performance rhythm machine that melds the legendary sound and vibe of the TR-808 and TR-909 with features and functions for the modern age. A product of the 80's, both the TR-808 and the TR-909 have since become two of the most highly-respected, classic groove boxes that have produced some of the most influential drum sounds in modern music.Since the 1980's the sounds of the TR-808 and the TR-909 have appeared on thousands of dances tracks over the last three decades, and have helped define the sound of entire musical genres. From Rap and House to Techno and Trance - these two drum machines have left an indelible mark on the art and culture of music, and now they're together, as one cohesive drum machine, the TR-8 Rhythm Performer.The SoundRoland has obsessively analyzed and faithfully re-created every detail and nuance of the analog circuitry of these legendary rhythm machines. The iconic boom and snap of the 808, the classic thud of the 909, the robotic click of an 808 rim shot, or a classic 909 snare roll, it's all here.The TR-8 is more than a recreation of theses legendary machines though, they've been completely enhanced with capabilities that reach far beyond what the original units are capable of.Tune and Decay knobs are now present on every instrument and the Bass and Snare drum modules have dedicated "Attack" and "Comp" knobs allowing for a great variety of tones - from subtle ambient percussion to pounding dance grooves. Per-step effects and the massively addictive "Scatter" function take things into entirely new territory.With the authentic tone and character of the original units and with enhanced sound tweaking capabilities inspired by legions of users, the TR-8 breathes new life into the sounds we all know and love.The FeelMake no mistake - the TR-8 is an instrument, carefully designed from the ground-up, to be played. Every control has a solid, predictable feel with each drum instrument having robust, "playable" faders. Numerous lighted knobs and RGB-lit buttons give real-time performance feedback and a striking appearance on stage.Pattern creation is creative and intuitive using an evolved version of the TR-REC method, which originated in the TR-808 and eventually became the standard for electronic rhythm programing. Based on detailed analysis of the original TR-808, the TR-REC behavior has been faithfully modeled in the TR-8. But the TR-8 goes well beyond the original, allowing you to seamlessly switch between programming and performance modes and to introduce lots of groovy rhythmic variations - from subtle snare fills to total glitch meltdowns.What is Scatter?Scatter is a unique performance function that gives you detailed realtime control over variations in your patterns and any incoming external input signal. With Scatter you can reverse, glitch, gate, truncate, stutter and perform all manner of rhythmic variations - from subtle to extreme - and all in perfect sync. Pick from 10 different types of Scatter and smoothly adjust the intensity or "Scatter Depth" with the large comfortable dial, and switch between Scatter patterns and quickly turn Scatter on and off for cool variations when and where you want them.
