Sequencing Mastery

Based on the standard format for rhythm recording, the TR-REC behavior has been faithfully modeled on the TR-8, but goes beyond the original with performance / programming modes and rhythmic variations, glitches, and fills.

Classic Sounds

Roland obsessively analyzed and recreated every detail and nuance of the analog circuitry of these legendary rhythm machines-the boom and snap of the 808; the thud of the 909; the robotic click of an 808 rim shot or a classic 909 snare roll.

Modern Features

Scatter is a performance function for real-time control over variations in patterns and any external input. Scatter can reverse, glitch, gate, truncate, stutter, and perform all manner of rhythmic variations from subtle to extreme, and all in perfect sync.
