Roland has introduced new drum machines in the TR- series. Two are hardware, one is a software plug-in. Here's the information that they have sent us...
TheTR-6S Rhythm Performer features a six-track sequencer and a battery-powered box that will fit in just about any space. The device recreates the legendary sounds of Roland drum machines like the 808, 909, 707, 606, and more, and allows users to mix and match them with preset and custom samples and futuristic FM tones.
TheTR-06 Drumatix is the modernized update to the Roland TR-606 Drumatix that allows users to control tuning, decay, and pan, and includes advanced features like sub-steps for ratcheted parts, step-loop for instant pattern slicing, and more. This new drum machine incorporates a USB audio interface, and features battery operation and a built-in speaker for easy on-the-go production.
The TR-606 Software Rhythm Composer is the new plug-in version of the original '80s classic made for DAW music production. This software introduces powerful features, like the ability to overdrive the internal circuitry, an expanded step sequencer with lanes for each sound, and pairing with the TR-8S and TR-06.
