The Roland TR drum machines have had a massive impact on the music for over 40 years. Based on the much-loved TR-8S, the Roland TR-6S brings you the same speaker-pummeling, window-rattling, body-moving sound of its bigger brother. With the TR-6S you can elevate your drums, make beats on the go, and enjoy hands-on production. As a result, the sounds of classic tracks, modern trends, and futuristic hits are all within arms reach.
Six tracks of rhythmic bliss
With the TR-6S, you’ve got 6 tracks of advanced drum sequencing along with the most iconic rhythm sounds in music history. All in a battery-powered box that you can take with you just about anywhere. Just like all Roland drum machines, TR-6S is not only fun, but inspiring. Including a familiar step-sequencer and dedicated faders and knobs; it’s never been easier to make custom beats with so much hands-on control.
All the sounds and more
What’s more, the TR-6S comes packed with authentic recreations of classic drum machines. Including the renowned, 808, 909, 707, and 606. These aren’t just sample packs or knock-offs either. They’re authentic replicas that sound and act exactly like their vintage counterparts. Furthermore, you can mix-and-match these sounds with preset, custom samples, and futuristic FM tones. Allowing you to build exotic 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 “TR-REC” step-sequencer in early Roland drum machines. With the TR-6S, you get the same tried-and-true approach, along with enhanced recording 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. You’ll find vital compressors and EQs at your fingertips along with lush reverb, delay, and modulation effects. Simply push your creative boundaries with filters, LFOs, and wild new effects.
Convenience and flexibility
Finally, the TR-6S is also a high-quality USB audio/MIDI interface. Perfect for mobile and minimal production setups and fits in even the smaller studios and live rigs. So you’re ready to turn your inspiration to life whenever it strikes!
