Roland tells us that the new TR-606 kit will be included as part of the 7X7-TR8 Drum Machine Expansion. It's available to both new and existing users. Here's Roland's point by point description of the current 7X7-TR8 Drum Machine Expansion:
- Every sound of the TR-707 and TR-727 Rhythm Composers, faithfully reproduced using the original PCM wave data and detailed models of the original circuitry.
- Analog Circuit Behavior captures the unmistakable sound of the original units – a result of lo-fi sampling and the behavior of the analog envelope and VCA circuitry design.
- Adds the unique flam and accent behaviors of the TR-909 and TR-707, with adjustable flam intensity and two levels of accent.
- Four entirely new TR-8 sounds including modified TR-909 kick, TR-909 snare and all new clap and snap sounds.
- Upgrades the TR-8 to have all the sounds and articulations of four iconic TR drum machines, plus all new sounds, in one performance-ready instrument.
Pricing and Availability:
Current 7X7-TR8 Expansion owners will get the TR-606 at no additional charge. Update will be available June 17th.
