You spoke, and Roland listened. The Entire Roland Aira family has been updated with exciting and usful features requested by users from around the globe.
The Aira TR-8 is the exciting TR-808 and TR909 redesign we have all been waiting for! Fusing these legendary groove machines into one portable but powerful package, the TR 8 perfectly captures the essence of it's predecessors, even down to the intricate circuitry response, tone shaping and vintage analogue warmth. 16 classic drum kits with 16 solid patterns come featured in the box for you to start building grooves straight away, but the possibilities are endless for creating rhythms and your own kits as you see fit.
Tune and Decay knobs are now present on every instrument, allowing you to fine-tune the sound and shape of each sound meticulously. The Bass and Snare drum modules have dedicated 'Attack' and 'Comp' controls, meaning you can control the snap and bite of the kit very easily. Roland's new 'Scatter' effect, as seen on the new TR-3 vocal transformer, also provides added creative effect alongside reverb and delay. Side Chain options allow you to utilise the assignable 1/4" jack inputs and get a cool 'duck' effect, popularised on hip-hop and dance records in recent years.
The TR-REC feature will be familiar to those who've used the original drum machines, which set the standard for overdubbing and pattern creation when it was first launched. Seamlessly switch between programming and performance modes and to introduce lots of groovy rhythmic variations – from subtle snare fills to total glitch meltdowns. A 7 segment, 4 character LED display shows the current tempo and has a Tap Tempo function between 40-300BPM, covering everything from downtempo beats to Drum & Bass rollers!
The original TR808 and TR909 are arguably two of the most influential synths of modern music...now it's time for the TR-8 to continue the legacy!
