Custom Black Modded Roland CR-8000 Analog DRUM MACHINE


via eBay

"Roland CR8000 Analog DRUM MACHINE Midi-Individual Outs Tonal MODS

This great drum machine has had a major makeover and now works great and has had many enhancements.

All the switch buttons have been dissembled ,cleaned and the rubber contact coated with CailKote 44 so the all work perfect. All NEW capacitors on voice board and the other lower PCB.

Added 6 individual output jacks so you can route the instruments to were you want them to go.

Added 1/8 jack to the Audio out and to the trigger out so you can have a choice of what cable you need to use for your set up.

The best is the TUBBUTEC Midi Interface. See Pic for midi control of the interface PC and Mac available at TUBBUTEC
Allows you to trigger the CR8000 sounds from your midi setup. It also Syncs the drum machine to midi clock. The Midi INPUT jack is on the left side located with the 6 indivual outputs jacks , 3.5mm 1/8'' Midi is standard 5 pin din jack.
When i got the CR8000 it was missing the the lower silk screened metal panel so i made one to fit from laminated laser print.

The other panel is original the one with the volume and accent controls.

Now the individual drum sounds tone mod section is just remarkable as it makes the CR sound like no other drum machine. Will send along the tone template panel i made as you may want to make you own. Will help you find what knob does what. Added a noise level, Offset and Bass drum decay so theres 18 knobs to use for sound editing. Massive 808 like bass drum decay.

New battery holder for 3 AA memory backup and 4 new rubber original feet from SYNTAUR.

The body has been repainted with 3 coats of KRYLON FUSION Semi Gloss black for a durable new finish.

This is sold to USA and CANADA BUYERS ONLY.
