Compact drum machine with six tracks of authentic TR sounds, samples, FM tones and effects.
Six Tracks of Rhythmic Bliss
With the TR-6S, you get six tracks of advanced drum sequencing and the most iconic rhythm sounds in music history—all in a battery-powered box that fits just about anywhere. And like other Roland drum machines, it's fun and inspiring. With the familiar step sequencer, plus dedicated faders and knobs, it's easy to craft custom beats with visceral, hands-on control.
All the Sounds and More
The TR-6S is filled with authentic recreations of legendary Roland drum machines that have defined genres and driven culture for decades—including the 808, 909, 707 and 606. And these aren't sample packs or cheap knock-offs—they're living, breathing replicas that sound and behave just like their vintage counterparts. Going further, you can mix and match these sounds with preset and custom samples and futuristic FM tones, creating exotic hybrid kits that reflect your unique taste and style.
The Gold Standard in Drum Programming
The sound of today's music owes a lot to the classic step sequencer—particularly the "TR-REC" variety found in early Roland drum machines. The TR-6S employs the same tried-and-true approach, enhanced with real-time recording and modern features like sub-steps for ratcheted parts and motion recording for rhythms that move.
Create punch, space, warmth or grit with the array of high-quality effects in the TR-6S. Vital compressors and EQs are at your fingertips, along with lush reverb, delay and modulation effects. Push your creative boundaries with filters, LFOs and wild new effects that incite sonic mayhem.
Convenience and Flexibility
The TR-6S is a also a high-quality USB audio/MIDI interface, perfect for mobile or minimal production setups. And it fits in even the most space-starved studios or live rigs, so you can turn life into music whenever inspiration strikes.
Includes Firmware 3.0 Update (as of Sept. 12, 2023)
The original CR-78 CompuRhythm launched in 1978 as the first mass-produced programmable rhythm machine. And now, your TR captures that magic with pristine ACB CR sounds, including 14 instruments and original preset patterns you know and love, as well as updated advanced patterns to pepper your beats with CR-78 zest.
But it doesn’t stop there. Dive into an array of new parameter controls, using the power of ACB to push the CR-78 into new sonic dimensions. Combine tuning, decay and gain tweaks with motion recording to transform the sounds like never before, coaxing shimmery tails from the metallic instruments and deep resonant boom from the bass drum.
TR-808 CHROMATIC BASS
Tuned 808 basses have been shaking the foundation of modern music since Dynamix II
first did it way back in 1987. While most producers now do this in a DAW, the 808 Chromatic Bass instrument lets you use the TR hardware to program basslines using the step pads and coarse tuning for a hands-on approach. Lay the foundation of your bottom end with this authentic 808 bass sound, perfect for trap, hip-hop, electro and other genres. Then, embellish your rhythms with FX, FM sounds, probability, step loop and more.
