Roland TR-6S Review

Roland TR-6S vs TR-8S vs MC-101 – Review and full workflow tutorial

The TR-6S is the “mini-me” version of Roland’s TR-8S. It has the same exact sound engine, 6 tracks instead of 11 and fewer hands-on controls and inputs and outputs, but is more portable, it can be battery powered and takes up less space, and it’s less expensive. In this video I compare it to the TR-8S and the MC-101:
