Roland R-8 | Drums Everyone Wanted!

video upload by Espen Kraft

"Roland R-8 drum machine from 1989. 68 stellar high quality 16 bit sounds. Fantastic programming capabilities, great drum pads and at a fair price. Everyone was impressed and it sold very well.

A year after, Roland released the R-8M, the 19" rack module that expanded on the ROM card slots and the rack made everything gig-worthy for when you just wanted the drum sounds and not the sequencer, as many people already did their drum sequencing from a dedicated sequencer or computer.

My demo track is done with only sounds from the factory sounds AND some 808 drums from the 08 card you see in the video.
All reverbs are from the Valhalla VintageVerb plugin and the track has been thoroughly mixed and mastered. The drums are multi-tracked and not sequenced."

Also featuring the Roland Alpha Juno.
