Time machine: ROLAND TR-505 Vintage Drum Machine 1986

June 8, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The Roland TR-505 is a little programmable digital drum machine from 1986. This demo shows some of AnalogAudio1’s own patterns.

Accent is programmable. It’s some kind of mini-combination of a TR-707 and TR-727 since it has percussion sounds in addition. It has similar sounds. It has MIDI but no single outputs and no Roland SYNC-Interface. Shuffle functions available.

A cheap (budget) drum machine. It features 16 drum tones which unfortunately, are only mediocre samples. Its memory contains 48 patterns and 6 songs. Unlike its TR cousins it does not have individual drum tone outputs. There is no drum tone editing capability either. It does however feature extensive MIDI implementation, even the pads will transmit MIDI data. The 505 works well with a computer and sequencer or as a stand alone drum machine. It is extremely basic and unexciting but does make a good starter or play-along drum machine.
