909 day: DJ808 – a TR drummachine, 8 samples, DJ controller + Jupiter 8 + Juno 106 Plugout free with System

first about 909 day/event: everything is said an new things beside a turnbtable and battle mixer – from now on only details will follow.

some images of that new Serato / Roland controller with 16 step TR-kind of sequencer in it. introduced by 2 CEOs..
it has a TR808 in it (drums) – 16 pattern. – 4 drumkits: 606,909,606,808 in it. so it’s basically a TR8 in it called TR-S. plus DJ stuff. of course.
the pads play samples – so it’s also a sampler for performance and fast recording and vocal transformer in it as well (right top corner)

  1. mic, ich hätte erwartet, dass du dezidiert aufschreist, was NICHT kam. wie sich nun herausstellte, scheint der acb-sampler, der so viele vintage-sampler emulieren soll, ein mythos zu sein. die reaktionen auf gearslutz darüber sind das eiigentlich interessante an diesem abend…

    Oh well. I guess it turns out Roland’s coolest product is just a myth. No ACB sampler exists

    Ask ‘thaknock’, maybe he was talking about the dj808. Jeeez…

    When I first saw the announcement of the Serato partnership, I knew it would be bad news.

    I NEED a standalone SAMPLER. No sampler? Again :(

    Yeah man, wtf.. Roland seem to have totally abandoned sampler/groovebox market. Lame.

    The Roland/Serato combo is far from the TR-8: Specs: “Built-in Roland TR-S drum machine with 606, 707, 808, 909 kicks, snares, claps and hi-hats.” Only 4 sounds! Similarly, the VT is cut down compared to the VT-3.

    No sampler, no groovebox, no workstation, no standalone dj machine… Well, disappointed. At least no need to keep watching the shows, TDD Total Deception Day.

    Overall, very very dull. Kind of embarrassing in the way they made such a big deal out of the whole thing. More excited for the new Deluge synth/sampler groovebox that a couple of dudes have made than any of this stuff that a huge company has just pushed out in their sleep.

    Allerdings git es noch ein wenig Hoffnung:

    On Roland Aira official facebook in the comments section, you’ll find interesting answer… “we are just expanding the aira family, lots more will come from aira”… NAMM 2017!

    Was den Livestream angeht, hagelt es Galgenhumor…

    It’s like one of those movies, where people just walk out the cinema halfway.

    für mich der gewinner des tages: pioneer mit dem toraiz.

      1. > Dieser Sampler ist eine Idee
        > der Gerüchteküche.

        völliger quark, was du da schreibst. der whistleblower hat darüber seinen job verloren. “tha knoq” war ein mitarbeiter eines großkoperten new yorker hiphop producers, der ihn vor die tür setzte, weil sein ausplaudern via gearslutz den bruch der nda seines arbeitgebers mit roland bedeutete. “tha knoq” hatte zuvor die offizielle ankündigung des mpc touch auf den tag genau (7.10.2015) vorausgesagt. by doing so brach er eine weitere nda seines arbeitgebers – diesmal mit akai. “tha knoq” schrieb im herbst 2015 bei gearslutz, er habe ein video eines roland-gerätes mit eigenen augen gesehen (“16-pad sampler/workstation, acb”), das deratig professionell bereits war, dass er davon ausgehen musste, dass es anlässlich der winter namm 2016 als promo video gezeigt werden würde. wir wissen heute, dass es aners kam. das produkt wurde – aus welchen gründen auch immer – postponed. aber nicht geshelved! denn: “On Roland Aira official facebook in the comments section, you’ll find interesting answer… “we are just expanding the aira family, lots more will come from aira”… NAMM 2017!”
