At the end of March we received the long anticipated TR-8 from Roland. This is our Roland Aira TR-8 review, which highlights what we think is good and bad about Roland’s new drum machine.
The Tr-8 is the update of the well loved 808 and 909, which are much sought after drum machines, first released in the 1980’s. Although we’ve never owned an original 808 or 909, we do have a Jomox 888 in the studio, which is an amazing analogue drum machine. For the purpose of this review, we’ll often refer back to the Jomox for comparison.
