Roland has introduced a collection of 5 of the brand’s most revered rhythm machines from the ’80s as recreated modern plugins.

The plugins of the Drum Machine Collection are enhanced with new sound-shaping options and advanced sequencing capabilities, as well as Analog Circuit Behavior (ABC) technology.

Within this single, value-priced collection, users will gain access to authentic recreations of Roland’s TR-808, TR-606, TR-909, TR-707 and TR-727. These five drum machines have served as backbones to numerous tracks over the past 40 years, and these recreations sound and behave just like the vintage hardware, with the addition of advanced programming features and controls fit for modern production.
