The Roland TR-8S - A Classic Rhythm Performer for a New Generation
Carved from the DNA of the world’s most famous and influential drum machines, the new generation TR-8S
combines key Roland heritage with innovative production techniques and professional sound design.
Build your dream ensemble with a dense palette of iconic drum sounds and vast selection of samples from the Roland vault – or simply import your own. A forward thinking, meticulously tuned digital instrument unlike any other.
Creative & Versatile
Versatile yet familiar design lets you tap, tune and tweak your way into layered patterns and textured grooves. And why keep this kind of percussive power to the studio? The TR-8S was made to play live, imbued with a natural and intuitive feel.
With more creative FX than ever – delay, overdrive, filters, reverb and more – the attack of your kick, the snap of your snare, or the depth your phaser can be programmed with absolute precision. Get more experimental still, with unusual polyrhythms and complex meters by adjusting the length or ‘last step’ of each drum part.
The TR-8S is a modern classic, already taking the music industry by storm. A relic from the past re-imagined for the future – and proof that Roland is still very much at the peak of its game.
