The Return of an Underground Classic
Original TR-606 units are increasingly hard to find and sell for significant sums on the used market. Using our proprietary ACB (Analog Circuit Behavior) technology, we’ve painstakingly recreated the original analog circuits that are the essence of the TR-606’s sound. Our plug-in sounds identical to the original TR-606—with all its nuance and detail—while adding new features that greatly expand its sound and creative capabilities for modern musicians and producers:
Tuning and decay on each instrument, plus the ability to overdrive the internal circuitry for fat and gritty new sounds
The classic TR-606 step sequencer, expanded with lanes for each sound to enable faster and more fluid programming
Each pattern has eight variations for evolving sequences that keep things interesting
Drag and drop audio or MIDI patterns from the plug-in directly into a project
Adjustable flams, sub-steps, and soft hits for creating detailed fills and ratcheted sequences
The TR-606 plug-in integrates seamlessly with our TR-8S Rhythm Performer and Roland Boutique TR-06 hardware instruments. Transfer patterns from the TR-8S to the TR-606 plug-in, or create beats in your DAW and send them back to the hardware for live performance. And with its pre-mapped controls, you can use the TR-06 for hands-on operation of the plug-in.
Join Roland Cloud today for the raucous sound of the TR-606, along with a host of other legendary Roland instruments. Curious to hear what came before the TR-606? Check out its equally influential siblings and dance music staples, the TR-808 and TR-909.
*after October 15th the TR-606 plugin will only be available in an Ultimate membership or with the purchase of a Lifetime Key.
