Roland's TR-808 needs little introduction. As a drum machine, it's a truly prolific piece of modern music history. The coveted sounds and sequences of the 808 are legends in their own right. With this entry from Roland, that legend lives again.
The Roland TR-08 meticulously recreates the TR-808 to the last detail. Iconic kicks, snares, and hats all march out of the classic sequencer module with all the tone and style that dominated modern music for decades on end. Keying into what made the TR-808 so special, Roland also introduces some modern features to the formula for a faithful yet innovative take on the classic drum machine. Sixteen sub-steps for each sequence step drop in additional detail and nuance to each rhythm. A track-selectable trigger out connects the TR-08 to other instruments such as the SH-01A, TB-03, or modular gear to get your full rig in on the fun. MIDI sends and receives messages while USB connection keeps up with your creativity with audio and MIDI.
