Behringer RD-6 is an authentic analog clone of the Roland TR-606 drum machine which the company is showing for NAMM 2020 but on NAMM

Behringer and the NAMM could be a perfect match because you know here that the company announced many new products even if they don’t have a booth there. After Roland System 100, Moog Modular now the Roland TR-606 Replica called RD-6  is here. Analog again and developed in Italy.

It offers all 8 drum sounds from the original, a 64-step sequencer, USB MIDI connectivity, sync in/out and patch points. The design is strongly based on the original and is reminiscent of the housing of the TD-3 (a plastic box).

It became known especially in combination with the TB-303 from Roland, the legendary analog bassline synthesizer. The latter is already available from Behringer and is called TD-3. The TR-606 was used by many rock and electronic musicians like Big Black, Plastikman Aphex Twin or Autechre.

The official price is not yet known. Since the TR-606 was never the most expensive drum machine (currently used priced around $500 +/-), I guess the RD-6 will be in the price range of the TD-3 like 150 to 200€ but let see.

Behringer RD-6 is coming soon.
