This short review shows some of the capabilities within this fine piece of equipment. The Roland CR-8000 is a fine drum machine, no doubt about that, but with the modifications made by Gotharman it’s a completely new machine. Besides an evil filter there is a noise mod added to the clap (with attack possibility), tune on the kick and it’s possible to bypass all the modifications (plus some more additions that turns our Roland CR-8000 into one of a kind drum machine!).
Fernando Perdomo’s entry into the Todd Rundgren remix competition. This is a dream come true!
Aside from the stems Todd provided, no samples were used to make this remix. I added Electric Guitar, Slide Guitar, 6 and 12 string acoustics, Moog Synthesizer, Microkorg mellotron, bass, and dropped an amp to make the reverb blow up. Eddie Zyne played the drums. Zach Ziskin polished the mix..
