Vintage drum machine sounds with modern features.

Using Roland’s new Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, the TR-8 recreates the incredible tone and character of the heralded TR-808 and TR-909 and injects it with modern connections and features for the ultimate electronic rhythm machine experience. All of the analog tone is painstakingly analyzed to give you THE sound of the 808 and 909 but now with Tune and Decay knobs and additional control over the snare and bass drums, allowing you to finely tune in the sound in your head. There’s even a new Scatter feature that creates interesting variations and glitches in your patterns, all synced in time. Something that it would normally take a full DAW to recreate. The control interface has even been revamped over the originals. Giving you better performance feedback and the ability to seamlessly switch between TR-REC programming and full performance modes on the fly. To top it off, it has MIDI I/O as well as a USB connection that can send audio and MIDI data and clock sync to your DAW without hassle all while being designed to integrate perfectly with your other AIRA units.


  • Full reproduction of the classic TR-808 and TR-909 rhythm machines, based on original design spec sheets and detailed analog circuit analysis of many original TR machines, including Roland’s own pristine units
  • Newly developed Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology allows part-by-part analyses and faithful recreation of tonality and behavior, including the smooth variations of tone that occur when you work the controls of each instrument
