Roland Compact Battery-Powered Drum Machine with Editable FM Sound Engine and 6-Track TR Sounds

The Roland TR Drum Machines have impacted music for over 40 years and they are as influential now as ever. Based on the much-loved TR-8S, the compact and affordable TR-6S has the same speaker-pummelling, window-rattling, body-moving sound as its bigger sibling. Elevate your drum tracks, make beats on the go, and experience the joy of hands-on production. With the TR-6S, the sound of classic tracks, today’s trends, and tomorrow’s hits are always within reach.

Six Tracks of Rhythmic Bliss

With the TR-6S, you get six tracks of advanced drum sequencing and the most iconic rhythm sounds in music history all in a battery-powered box that fits just about anywhere. And like other Roland drum machines, it is fun and inspiring. With the familiar step sequencer plus dedicated faders and knobs, it is easy to craft custom beats with visceral, hands-on control.

All the Sounds and More

The TR-6S is filled with authentic recreations of legendary Roland drum machines that have defined genres and driven culture for decades, including the 808, 909, 707, and 606. And these are not sample packs or cheap knock-offs they are living, breathing replicas that sound and behave just like their vintage counterparts. Going further, you can mix and match these sounds with preset and custom samples and futuristic FM tones, creating exotic hybrid kits that reflect your unique taste and style.

The Gold Standard in Drum Programming

The sound of today’s music owes a lot to the classic step sequencer particularly the TR-REC variety found in early Roland drum machines. The TR-6S employs the same tried-and-true approach, enhanced with real-time recording and modern features like sub-steps for ratcheted parts, probability for creating unpredictability, and motion recording for rhythms that move.

Positive Effects

Create punch, space, warmth, or grit with the array of high-quality effects in the TR-6S. Vital compressors and EQs are at your fingertips, along with lush reverb, delay, and modulation effects. Push your creative boundaries with filters, LFOs, and wild new effects that incite sonic mayhem.

Convenience and Flexibility

The TR-6S is also a high-quality USB audio/MIDI interface, perfect for mobile or minimal production setups. And it fits in even the most space-starved studios or live rigs, so you can turn life into music whenever inspiration strikes.

Hardware Meets Software

Enhance your workflow with TR-EDITOR, a fluid computer-based editor and librarian for the TR-6S. Nimbly design and edit patterns and kits with an intuitive graphic interface, which features a wide array of onscreen parameters and access to deeper FM editing. And with the large display, it is easy to manage your entire library. Download TR-EDITOR for free today through Roland Cloud Manager, the software interface for Roland Cloud content.
