Behringer has announced that all models of the previously announced RD-6 analog drum machine are now ready to ship from its factory.

Behringer RD 6 Series

Featuring 8 drum sounds and a 64-step sequencer, Behringer’s take on the TR-606 drum machine comes in a wide variety of colors.

Great care has been taken in designing the RD-6-SR to achieve new possibilities in beat creation by reviving a timeless design from one of the most classic drum machines of yesteryear.

By taking a fresh and modern approach on a classic drum machine, the RD-6-SR gives you the power to harness the phenomenal sound of the venerable TR-606 and tap into some new features as well.
