Roland R 8 for sale:
The R-8 is a drum machine made in Japan in 1989 by Roland. The R-8 is equipped with MIDI IN OUT THRU, it has a 68 sounds drum kit. The number of sounds can be increased using additional ROM cards. The PADS are velocity sensitive, the sounds are editable for some parameters: PITCH, DECAY ... A sound editing parameter is called "NUANCE", it is in fact a high pass filter for certain sounds or it is a parameter that gives more realism to other sounds. The Roland R-8 was designed with many "humanizing" functions in order to replace a real drummer. Programming is slightly more complex than programming a TR707/ 727... But the sound quality is stunning and actually very realistic. The Roland R-8 was and is used by artists like Jimmy Edgar, Autechre and many more ... Aphex Twin uses intensively the Roland R-8 which is highly present on his latest album SYRO.
With scruffs here and there and the black plastic slightly discolored, this Roland R-8 is in correct cosmetic order. This Roland R-8 is in perfect working order! (fully serviced in our workshop) Sold with a 1 month warranty.
