Musicians have been spoilt this week with new toys revealed
Roland went all out this week by revealing not one but two new drum machines to add to the collection.
Based on the popular & well loved TR-8S, say hello to the TR-6S which is a 6-track version in a more compact and affordable package!
The TR-6S gives users all the same functions as the TR-8S but with six tracks of advanced drum sequencing instead of 11. This means you’ll get all the detailed circuit models of all the TR Drum machines plus a large preset sample library and of course, room for your own custom samples..
Lets not forgot, this compact package from Roland also comes with a FM engine, a bunch of built-in effects and it will run on batteries!!!
Drum Machine no2 and I have to say, it looks rather smooth!
The TR-06 is the newest member to be added to the Boutique range and is a replica of the classic TR-606 with some major updates…
The 606 sound is distinctive with the TR-06 getting all the sounds plus some variations and tweaks. There is also the step sequencer but its been updated and now features adjustable sub-steps for ratcheted parts and step-loop for instant pattern slicing.
The TR-6S will be available in November 2020 costing $400 with the TR-06 being released later this month costing the same $400.
