Roland TR-8 To Include TR-707 Sounds?
TR-707 sounds may have been revealed in a recent video from the Dancefair festival in Utrecht.

The Roland AIRA TR-8 already includes the sounds of the TR-808 and TR-909, but it seems that the TR-707 sound will be introduced soon as an update.

The original TR-707 was introduced in 1984 and has been used on tracks by Aphex Twin, Phil Collins, Erasure, M83 and The Weeknd.

It's not confirmed whether the 707 sounds will be available for free or as a purchasable extra.

The TR-8 uses Roland's Analog Circuit Behaviour Technology to emulate the legendary Roland drum machine sounds. Find out more and check out the other products in the Roland AIRA Series.
