Roland is bringing the iconic TR-808 to your DAW

Digital Developments For The Legendary Rhythm Composer

Roland has recreated the distinctive sound of their famous TR-808 Rhythm Composer in a digital form, announcing that the iconic instrument will now be available as a plug-in for your DAW.

The news follows Roland recently sharing details of the updated Aira TR-8S, and sees the company reinvent their classic drum machine in another format. The TR-808 software enhances the 808 formula, adding variable patterns and opportunities for sequencer expansion to further your creativity.


Other notable features include “last step” and shuffle settings, allowing you to experiment with timing and polyrhythms, and the option to drag patterns from your TR-808 directly into your chosen DAW as MIDI or audio clips.
