Roland TR-08: Egyptian Lover Demo [VIDEO]

Roland has just revealed it's newest Bass drum sequencer called the TR-08 which has nearly the same sounds and patterns as the iconic 808 which Roland is still revered for. The new TR-08 will only cost $850 and is a digital representation of the original analog 808. The digital TR-08 is so similar to the original that Egyptian Lover (808 King) has a complete demo showing the old and the new side-by-side for this dope comparison.

[DJ Expo 2017] Roland DJ-505 & DJ-202 Walkthrough Video

We were on hand at the DJ Expo in Atlantic City, NJ Earlier today to talk to the Roland company about their latest products. Roland continues to march forward with their DJ range lineup that now includes the new DJ-505 which is a trimmed down 2-channel version of the DJ-808 we reviewed earlier this year and a DJ-202 which is an entry level Serato DJ Intro compact/affordable controller. The DJ-505 looks really cool and compact while also being fun to use as it includes the Roland drum sounds that made the original DJ-808 a BLAST to use. The DJ-202 looks to be Roland's entry-level controller which can compete with other smaller DJ controllers in the same $300 price range. Check out our quick walkthrough video right from the DJ Expo showroom floor to see these new controllers in action.
