Compact drum machine with six tracks of authentic TR sounds, samples, FM tones and effects.
Roland TR drum machines have impacted music for over 40 years — and they're as influential now as ever. Based on the much-loved TR-8S, the compact and affordable TR-6S Rhythm Performer has the same speaker-pummeling, window-rattling, body-moving sound of its bigger sibling. Elevate your drum tracks, make beats on the go and experience the joy of hands-on production. With the TR-6S, the sound of classic tracks, today's trends and tomorrow's hits are always within reach.
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.
