We got a hands on with the new 808- and 101-inspired Roland Boutique models the day before release. And… then we got a bit carried away.
Here’s a quick jam excerpt, with myself and Roland Europe’s Nick de Friez:
I can tell you this: these things are a heck of a lot of fun. The main appeal of the TR-08, of course, isn’t innovation so much as those familiar 808 sounds. But the compressor can make the bass drum really boom, and then you get the power of having a trigger out.
