Showroom: Roland Adds Vintage Sounds in the 7X7-TR8 Drum Machine ExpansionShowroom: Roland Adds Vintage Sounds in the 7X7-TR8 Drum Machine Expansion

Roland introduces the new 7X7-TR8 Drum Machine Expansion for the TR-8 Rhythm Performer. Every sound of the TR-707 and TR-727 has been reproduced using the original PCM wave data and detailed models of the original circuitry. Analog Circuit Behavior captures the sound of the original units, a result of lo-fi sampling and the behavior of the analog envelope and VCA circuitry design.

All thirty original TR-707 and TR-727 sounds are included, each with tune and decay controls. The 7X7 expansion also includes new, never-before-heard sounds inspired by the original TR engineers. New TR-808 “noise” sounds and finger snaps bring tonal variety, and newly modified TR-909 kick and snare sounds take the classic combo into new territory with enhanced attack characteristics. The flam and accent behaviors of the TR-909 and TR-707 are featured as well, with adjustable flam intensity and two levels of accent.

This new expansion upgrades the TR-8 to have all the sounds and articulations of four TR drum machines, plus all new sounds, in one performance-ready instrument.
