The comprehensive and intuitive control section is designed for fast and fluid playability, making it ideal as a live performance instrument. It features 16 TR-Rec buttons for creating sequences on the fly. You can also us the velocity-sensitive performance pad to play live and/or record directly into the sequencer.
The seamless transition between playing and editing allows you to easily shape your sound while you play live, providing some interesting results. You can do everything from straight forward drum loops to create complex rhythms, detailed fills with velocity, accent and flam variations and more. You can also adjust the last step of each drum part for creating unusual rhythms.
Roland have given you the ability to store up to 128-patterns, each allowing for up to eight variations, which can be triggered on their own or simultaneously as a chain for evolving sequences. Each pattern also includes tempo and kit information, as well as total recall of all knob positions and effect settings for added convenience.
One of the most unique features of the AIRA TR-8S is the motion recording functionality. This allows you to input detailed technique into your drum tracks. This means you can lock parameters to steps, or record automation into your patterns for maximum versatility. You can do everything from automate drum tuning, pitch, panning and more. Each pattern also provides you with two fills, which you create from scratch or customise from preset fills.
As well as giving you the ability to craft and customise your sounds and sequences, the Rhythm Performer also includes a range of premium-grade effects. These effects can be used for a variety of applications, from adding a simple reverb to a Snare for added dispersion, to totally changing the tone and style of a sound. The specialised percussion-tuned effects range from Delays and Reverbs to Compressors, Distortion, Phasers, Flangers and more.
