Drum machine recommendation-Drumbrute vs Roland TR-08 vs..

Post by KidFromBastion » Sat Sep 09, 2017 7:18 pm

Hey everyone!

So, I need a recommendation for my first hardware drum machine. I want to work on EBM/industrial/electronic rock music.

So far I am thinking of 3 machines: Arturia Drumbrute, Roland AIRA TR-8 or Roland TR-08.
From what I saw, they are all similarly priced. And I couldn't find any reviews of either of those being used for the music that I want to make.
Does anyone here have any experience with those machines? Or maybe You can recommend me something else in the same price range?

The Drumbrute is analog, but has no storage for the drum parameters.

The TR-8 does 808, 909 and others as well.

The TR--08 only does 808, and the sound engine on the TR-08 isn't as good. (The Boutiques have less DSP power than the AIRA series)
