Roland announced new MV-8000 drum kit downloads, available now on Rolands web site. For a limited time, Roland is offering MV-8000 owners a complete TR-808 drum kit for free. Every famous 808 sound, complete with knob twists and nuances, has been captured in uncompressed, full-resolution audio.
From making beats to sampling and CD-burning, the MV-8000 Production Studio does it all—quickly and elegantly. Sample your own sounds or import Roland, Akai, ACID and .WAV libraries, then arrange it all using 16 velocity/aftertouch-sensitive pads and Roland’s most powerful audio/MIDI sequencer. Add a selection of professional COSM effects, onboard mastering tools, a built-in CD-RW drive and USB port, and you’ve got the ultimate studio for today’s producers.
The first product of its kind to offer pattern-based step-sequencing, the Roland TR-808 helped to shape the quirky and instantly recognizable sounds of the 1980s. Propelled by its booming bass drum of doom, the 808 became a staple of hip-hop, R&B, and pop, appearing on more records than any other drum machine. Expensive and hard to find, the TR-808 is a rare treasure on today’s vintage-instrument market.
