Roland's TR-08 is inspired by the iconic TR-808. The lightweight interface features a 100% authentic recreation built off of Roland's Analog Circuit Behavior technology. The TR-08 features additional modern features such as a sequencer with 16 sub-steps per step, track-selectable trigger out for working with other instruments like the TB-03 and SH-01A, and an unobtrusive LED display for finer control of tempo and shuffle.
