Roland x0x fun – a free 707, a master class in 606 from Shawn Rudiman

606 and 707 day passed us by, but let’s not miss these two free gifts – a master class from Pittsburgh’s machine maven and a free plug-in version of a Roland TR, too.

It’s 606 day – remember when Roland made a drum machine like a 303?

808 day, sure. But let’s pause for 606 day – the logical anniversary of the 1982 TR-606, a drum machine squeezed inside a tiny enclosure that looks like a 303 but isn’t. It’s the lesser known runt of the Roland family, and you kind of love it for that alone.
