The TR-8S takes what Roland learned from the TR-8 to build an amazing drum machine worthy of live musicians and producers. If the vast sound and kit library aren’t enough for you, you can add your own samples.

Has it really been four years since the TR-8 upended the dance music scene by reintroducing a generation to the iconic sound of Roland’s most influential drum machines? In that time, it’s become impossible to avoid the 808 kick, 909 snare, and Roland’s classic analog percussion elements in every...

An excellent update that builds on the success of its predecessor in all the right ways. The best Roland release in some time.

  • +

    Sample capabilities dramatically add to the flexibility., Far deeper sound shaping and effects than those of the original TR-8., Extra variation modes and automation add considerably to the sequencer.

  • -

    Added depth means that it loses a little immediacy., Effects are decent, but lack a bit of character., Auto-Fill mode gets old fairly quickly.

I didnt buy from here but I own it and had to leave a second review. the person who left a bad review must have been frustrated. if there were previous issues Im not experiencing them. Its a big learning curve but this thing is a WORKHORSE!

There are problems with the TR-8S as of 3/14/18. I am on the latest firmware, and the drum machine will often not play sounds that are on the timeline. It will also often continue to play sounds after you remove them.
