The 808 is the Constant
Often called “the successor to Dubstep” in EDM circles, the Trap musical sub-genre has its origins in the Hip Hop coming out the Southern United States, circa the late 1990’s. In the early 2010’s, innovative electronic based DJs and producers cranked the beats per minute up to 140, blended old-school Trap with Dubstep, Techno, and other EDM sub-genres and modern EDM Trap music was born.  One very strong tie has always existed between the original Trap and the modern EDM version:  Both are characterized by the iconic sound of the Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer.

Raw, yet Danceable
Roland Cloud has distilled the raw essence behind the EDM Trap sub-genre and welded it to the powerful Concerto engine, providing you with a massive tool-kit for creating in this or any genre.
