Roland has introduce the new 7X7-TR8 Drum Machine Expansion for the TR-8 Rhythm Performer.
The sounds of the now-famous TR-707 and TR-727 Rhythm Composers, with every nuance accounted for, can be injected into the TR-8, taking the whole experience to an entirely new level. Loved deeply by groove-minded musicians the world over, these machines have been the beating heart of a wide range of styles, including synth pop, acid house, techno, industrial, electro, and experimental.
7X7-TR8 Drum Machine Expansion features
- Every sound of the TR-707 and TR-727 Rhythm Composers, faithfully reproduced using the original PCM wave data and detailed models of the original circuitry.
- Analog Circuit Behavior captures the unmistakable sound of the original units—a result of lo-fi sampling and the behavior of the analog envelope and VCA circuitry design.
- Adds the unique flam and accent behaviors of the TR-909 and TR-707, with adjustable flam intensity and two levels of accent.
- Four entirely new TR-8 sounds including modified TR-909 kick, TR-909 snare and all new clap and snap sounds.
- Upgrades the TR-8 to have all the sounds and articulations of four iconic TR drum machines, plus all new sounds, in one performance-ready instrument.
