Der erste Eindruck...
hiturn, 15.12.2020
Beim spielen meiner TR-8 kam ich immer öfter an einen Punkt, an dem eine weite TR-8 "notwendig" wurde (z.B. wenn ich den Scatter langsam bis zur Schmerzgrenze hochdrehe und diesen Sound zusätzlich zum ursprünglichen Rhythmus weiterspielen will).
Natürlich kamen mir auch andere Rhytmusgeräte in den Sinn, doch wirklich begeistert hat mich keine und ich will nunmal den Roland-Drum-Sound.
Da kam die (unerwartete) Ankündigung der neuen TR genau zum richtigen Zeitpunkt und da ich beruflich derzeit viel unterwegs bin und nur alle paar Wochen nach Hause komme konnte ich bei der Mobilität dieses Geräts nicht widerstehen.

Der erste Eindruck:
-->Hands on! Wer bereits (ältere) Rolands bedient hat, der findet sich in der Struktur schnell zurecht. Das Gerät fühlt sich wertig an und auch die Möglichkeit, die Farben der Linefader selbst zu wählen dient nicht nur dem schicken Aussehen der Kiste.

-->Druck! Über Kopfhörer -der Test an der PA steht noch aus- fühlte ich mich klanglich gleich zu Hause und die Möglichkeit, eigene Samples zu nutzen hat meine Kreativität gleich gefordert.

-->Abwechslung! Mit nun acht statt zwei Variationen lassen sich auch längere passagen abwechslungsreich programmieren und quasi frei belegbare Instrumentenslots runden das ganze ab.

Dies waren nur meine ersten Eindrücke, für ein intensives Gerätestudium hatte ich bisher leider keine Zeit, werde aber diese Bewertung aktualisieren, sobald ich diese gefunden habe.

Klein, handlich, aber unglaublich performant
Philipp535, 09.01.2021
Klein, fast winzig ist die TR, gar nicht viel größer als eine Volca.
Das durchdachte Layout macht das Arbeiten trotzdem zum Vergnügen. Auch bei schlechten Lichtverhältnissen kommt man gut zurecht.
Die Handhabung der Untermenüs ist ok, man findet sich schnell hinein.

Klingen tut sie richtig gut, die Kombination aus ACB und Samples ist super. Eigene Samples einzubinden ist kein Problem.
Die 6 Slots, die allesamt auch Stereosamples abspielen können reichen in der Regel aus. Wer mehr braucht, nimmt die TR 8s.

Die Effekte klingen gut, schade nur, dass für die Sloteffekte kein Flanger, Phaser o.ä. zur Verfügung steht.
Sehr schön sind die 8 Variationen pro Pattern, also 8 eintaktige Pattern plus Fill in. Damit kommt man schon richtig weit.

Cooles Teil, für mich ideal als Herz eine kleinen Live Setups. Mein Digitakt kann zwar noch mehr, aber die TR 6s ist mir doch sympathischer im Workflow.

Das Gehäuse ist zwar komplett aus Kunststoff, macht aber einen robusten Eindruck.
