Well. I guess you have to come at this thing as a huge step above the TR-8. And that’s it.
Rather than, Elektrons do this and therefore I’ll work backwards to the TR-8S. If that makes sense.
It’s light years ahead of the original AIRA. Way behind any Elektron.
I’d say a “fairer” comparison would be to the MD.
With that said. I spent hours jamming on it. It is fun.
But try not to look at it like, Elektrons can do this. Why can’t the AIRA do that.
Finally, their onboard samples suck. I need to get a SD card and load my own samples. It doesn’t come with one.
It’s VERY Roland. Awesome concept. Weird implementation.
