Roland Aira Video with Craig De Sousa and Erefaan Pearce
With the Roland Aira release date in South Africa around the corner we’ve been taking the TR-8 and TB-3 out to various studios in Cape Town to see what local producers think of the gear. Goldfish were the first to check them out and now you can check out this Roland Aira video with Craig De Sousa and Erefaan Pearce from Heads & Tails Music who were both very excited at the prospect of jamming on Roland’s reinvention of their legacy TR-808, TR-909 and TB-303.
Connecting both pieces of tech to Ableton, Craig puts the authenticity of the new TR-8 to test with an A-B comparison to the original TR-909 whilst Erefaan is simply blown away by the 14 channels of audio that the TR-8 can dump simultaneously in your DAW with undetected latency. They also couldn’t resist having a good old jam session together. In Erefaan’s closing words “it’s a pity we have to give these back!”
