SKU-134087 Roland AIRA TR-8 Rhythm Performer from Guitar Center  sku

Roland AIRA TR-8 Rhythm Performer - 134087 by Roland

Item description: This Percussion Electronic Drums product is by Roland - The TR-8 is a performance rhythm machine that melds the legendary sound and vibe of the TR-808 and TR-909 with features and functions for the modern age. A product of the 80's, both the TR-808 and the TR-909 have since become two of the most highly-respected, classic groove boxes that have produced some of the most influential drum sounds in modern music.<BR/><BR/>Since the 1980's the sounds of the TR-808 and the TR-909 have appeared on thousands of dances tracks over the last three decades, and have helped define the sound of entire musical genres. From Rap and House to Techno and Trance - these two drum machines have left an indelible mark on the art and culture of music, and now they're together, as one cohesive drum machine, the TR-8 Rhythm Performer.<BR/><BR/><BR/><strong>The Sound</strong><BR/>Roland has obsessively analyzed and faithfully re-created every detail and nuance of the analog circuitry of these legendary rhythm machines. The iconic boom and snap of the 808, the classic thud of the 909, the robotic click of an 808 rim shot, or a classic 909 snare roll, it's all here.<BR/><BR/>The TR-8 is more than a recreation of theses legendary machines though, they've been completely enhanced with capabilities that reach far beyond what the original units are capable of.<BR/><BR/>Tune and Decay knobs are now present on every instrument and the Bass and Snare drum modules have dedicated Attack and Comp knobs allowing for a great variety of tones - from subtle ambient percussion to pounding dance grooves. Per-step effects and the massively addictive Scatter function take things into entirely new territory.<BR/><BR/>With the authentic tone and character of the original units and with enhanced sound tweaking capabilities inspired by legions of users, the TR-8 breathes new life into the sounds we all know and love.<BR/><BR/><BR/><strong>The Feel</strong><BR/>Make no mistake - the TR-8 is an instrument, carefully designed from the ground-up, to be played.
