    Roland CR-78 - "Full of vintage charm"


    I bought it on the spur of the moment, only realizing afterward how iconic it was (a good thing for me!). Of course, its sounds felt familiar and though it is mostly a preset machine you always have a good time trying the different possible combinati…

    Roland TR-09 - "A poor musician’s 909 ?" has images


    I’ve played house for a while now, and i’m a great fan of the TR909 sound, to the extent that almost all my tracks contain at least one Roland instrument. Unable to buy a 909 due to its incredibly high price, I was excited when the TR09 was announce…

    Roland TR-909 - "The TR 909 IS THE TRUE BOSS!!!"


    Easy to program, midi, roland old-school sync, and the typical roland sequencer that earned the TR its reputation. I now think the sequencer of the 808 is more "lively." It has a magical groove which isn't as present on the 909, except when play w…

    Roland CR-68 - moosers's review


    The Roland CR-68 is a vintage drum machine that was first made in the late 1970's. This was one of the first drum machines ever made, along with the CR-78. It comes in a little box and is from before the days when MIDI was a standard so there aren'…

    Roland TR-606 - Audiofanzine FR's review


    (Originally written by tetripor/translated from Audiofanzine FR) Few connections but enough: - The Midi connector allows syncing with any sequencer and the trig output allows you to sync any old cv/gate device. It's not high-end but it's s…

    Roland TR-707 - Audiofanzine FR's review


    (Originally written by jerome6/translated from Audiofanzine FR) - Can the sound be edited? No and it's good so!! - Does the unit have an effects section? No and it's good so!! Separate outputs so external processing is not a problem. - …

    Roland TR-909 - Cbass909's review


    A unique drum machine, despite the number of copies available and which aren't anything like it!! Its price is pretty high, granted, but it's because it's really worth it!! It's for all fans of big e-drums. Analog drum machine. Analog: Bass Dru…

    Roland TR-909 - Anonyme's review


    The features have been mentioned over and over again, so I see no need to go through them again. Pros: Super groovy sequencer, separate outs. Cons: No effects (but then again...) USE It couldn't be easier to use, except for some functions…
