The Roland TR-06 Drumatix Rhythm Performer is a modern version of the vintage TR-606 drum machine with a host of advanced new features added for today’s musicians, beat creators, and DJs. It uses Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) modeling to recreate the kick, snare, toms, cymbal, and hi-hats from the original machine but adds additional editing capabilities—including controls over tuning, decay, pan, gain, and more. Built-in effects including a compressor, overdrive, and tempo delay offer futher sound-sculpting options.
The 8-track (including accents) sequencer features 32 steps along with sophisticated programming features including sub-steps, step-loop, and per step probability; up to 128 patterns can be stored in memory. Patterns can be sequenced to compose complete songs using the Track Write mode.
The TR-06 receives power via its USB Type-B port or can run on four AA batteries. NiMH rechargeable batteries will power the machine for approximately five hours. A silver DK-01 boutique dock and four AA alkaline batteries are included.
