The Roland AIRA TR-6S Rhythm Performer is a 6-track version of the popular TR-8S drum machine in a scaled down, more portable chassis. Well suited to both stage and studio, the unit combines the legendary sound, form, and function of the vintage TR-808, TR-606, TR-909, and TR-707 rhythm machines with cutting-edge performance and live pattern manipulation capabilities. Roland’s Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology faithfully recreates the tonality and behavior of true-analog circuits. With ACB, every detail of these original machines is captured, including the variations in tone that occur when multiple instruments are entered in accented steps. Build your dream kit with the onboard drum sounds, tones from the futuristic FM engine, or peruse Roland’s vast stereo sample collection to create original sounds never heard before. What’s more, the SD card slot allows you to import your own samples. The TR-6S features 128 user kits made up of 6 instruments, each assigned a tone. What’s more, each tone has several variations and each tone is freely assignable to any of the 6 instrument slots. Each channel offers controls for tune, decay, and an assignable customized control knob, which places all the sound-shaping power within easy reach. The velocity-sensitive performance pads can be played live or you can record into the sequencer. You can move seamlessly between playing and editing, allowing you to reshape your drum parts without ever interrupting your flow. Each of the 128 patterns can store eight variations and two kinds of fills. Patterns and variations can be played or chained in any order, plus the auto-fill function automatically plays a fill every 2, 4, 8, 12, 16, or 32 measures.

The TR-6S employs the same tried-and-true approach, enhanced with realtime recording and modern features like sub-steps for ratcheted parts and motion recording for rhythms that move.
