Roland R8

DRUM MACHINE  |  BACK

roland r8The Roland R-8 is an electronic drum machine that was introduced in 1988 by Roland Corporation. It has features such as velocity and pressure sensitive trigger pads, slots for expanding the sounds with removable ROM cards, and the ability to create loops of beats. It also has 8 individual outputs, 32 voice polyphony and 4-part multitimbral MIDI.

The Original Roland R-8 drum machine had one RAM card slot for patterns and songs and one slot for PCM ROM sound cards to be plugged in order to add a wide range of sounds to the internal sound banks. The R8M rack version allows up to three PCM ROM cards and one RAM card to be plugged in and accessed simultaneously.

Existing cards:

  • Roland SN-R8-01 - Contemporary Percussion
  • Roland SN-R8-02 - Jazz Brush
  • Roland SN-R8-03 - Sound Effects
  • Roland SN-R8-04 - Electronic (Resembles a TR-808)
  • Roland SN-R8-05 - Jazz
  • Roland SN-R8-06 - Ethnic Percussion
