Roland Expand The Aira TR8

Roland Aira TR8 Expansion

We've been asked quite a bit about whether the Aira TR8 would see an expanded range of sounds and specifically whether they would be drawn from the Roland's magical toybox of vintage classics. Well now we can answer yes firmly to both those questions, the 7X7-TR8 Drum Machine Expansion adds the sweet subby kicks and unique PCM wave stylings of both the TR-707 and TR-727 drum machines to your Aira TR-8 and is available to buy direct from Roland from 19/12/14.

Compare the new TR8 with a vintage TR-707... this new expansion sounds simply perfect, making the TR8 the go-to product if you want authentic-sounding, vintage drum-machine sounds!

The development of the Roland's own ACB technlogy always seemed to hint at more things to come, allowing them to perfectly recreate lots of  the sounds of their iconic synths, drum machines and grooveboxes. However the modern DJ or producer doesn't want to cart around huge racks and flight cases, so it makes sense to keep it all under the hood of the existing hardware. Tinkering with an entirely new interface and finding more space on our mixer for a new piece of gear is something we really don't miss about the old days. The only thing we can think at this stage is that they might stuggle to squeeze the System 700 modular into them, but why not give it a go anyway guys?
