Following in the footsteps of their Analog Polysynth Collection, Roland has released the Drum Machine Collection. Featuring five bona fide classic rhythm boxes, this package won’t require a subscription and will save you $/€250!
The Roland Drum Machine Collection
Roland’s legendary drum machines of the 1980s are regarded as some of the finest ever made. I don’t need to wax lyrical about the TR-808, 909 or 707. Those three drum machines alone account for a huge amount of drum content to this day. The Latin variation of the TR-707, the TR-727 is also a venerable classic and the TR-606, whilst not getting as much love as the others, still has many die-hard fans.
Roland ACB Modelling
It’s difficult to question the accuracy and authenticity achieved by Roland’s ACB modelling technology. This software marvel has been responsible for most of Roland’s digital offerings in recent years. Many of their Boutique and Cloud instruments feature it; it is that technology that powers these five legends.
All five of these plugins have been available to Roland Cloud subscribers for some time, but now Roland has bundled them up as a retail package for those people who may not like to subscribe. They have also effectively knocked €/$50 off the price of each of these. Lifetime Keys have been available for all five at €/$149 so the €/$499 bundle price is quite the steal!
Roland Drum Machines For The 21st Century Producer
As well as faithfully recreating the original hardware, each plugin comes with extended features that bring them bang up to date for the modern, “in-the-box” musician and producer. Each have powerful sequencers and can easily be synchronised with your DAW. All the original sounds are included and a whole load more new patches. Each plugin comes in VST3/AU/AAX format with full support for Apple Silicon. All the plugins are supplied with a Lifetime Key and owners will receive free access to future updates and feature enhancements.
Roland’s Drum Machine Collection is available now via Roland Cloud and their retail partners for €/$499. A 30 day demo is also available.
