Roland TR-08 overview

  • 1Description

The Roland Boutique TR-08 Rhythm Composer is an ultra-compact recreation of the original TR-808 drum machine. The unit features the same front-panel layout and user interface as the original and is powered by Roland's Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, which delivers the same huge, speaker-pummeling output, but in a more affordable and portable format. The TR-08 offers precise control over an array of drum parameters and includes the ability to keep playing when switching modes, something the original was unable to do. The TR-08 features ten separate outputs via USB, external instrument control via the on-board trigger output, and USB MIDI. The unit can be powered by USB or via the included four AA batteries, and it ships with a black DK-01 Boutique dock.
