Description & Specs

In 1985 Roland released the TR-727 Rhythm Composer—the Latin percussion packed sibling of the now-famous TR-707. Lesser known but no less loved, the TR-727 found its way into a wide range of styles over the decades, from tribal and acid house to pop and techno. And it’s perfect for afrobeat, reggaeton, and other more exotic contemporary styles. Thanks to our Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, you can now have the authentic sound and experience of this classic percussion machine right inside your DAW— with modern upgrades that take it into all-new territory.

  • Analog Circuit Behavior technology captures every detail of the original hardware
  • Uses the original TR-727 sample ROM
  • Includes all 15 original sounds and 64 original patterns
  • 43 new patterns and kits for modern styles
  • Get modern sounds with tuning, decay, gain, sample rate adjustment, and more
  • Powerful sequencer with flams, sub-steps, last step, and per-instrument shuffle
  • Drag and drop audio or MIDI patterns directly to DAW tracks or cells
  • Original and aged skins along with LCD-style sequencer windows
  • Multiple outputs for flexible effects processing with plugins like ZENOLOGY FX
  • VST3, AU, and AAX support for popular DAWs
  • Native support for Apple silicon

Digital transition.
Before the TR-727, Roland released the now-legendary TR-909, which was developed as an analog-digital hybrid rather than a fully digital device. Memory chips and digital-to-analog converters were costly at the time, so there was concern that an all-digital design would make the product unaffordable for many musicians and would have limited sound shaping options. However, after the TR-909’s release, Roland embraced the trend towards digital technology with a Latin percussion machine that combined sampled sounds with the user-friendly TR interface—newly enhanced with the hands-on immediacy of individual faders.

Percussion powerhouse.
The blue-highlighted TR-727 could take any track to new heights with its 15 Latin percussion-inspired sounds and powerful sequencer. It’s a classic to this day because even with its limited palette and no sound editing capabilities, it’s one of those things that “just works.” And while this software recreation nails that vintage vibe, it introduces tuning, decay, and other manipulations that make the creative possibilities bloom.

The sound of vintage digital.
Developed in the mid-1980s, the TR-727 had a 25 kHz, 8-bit (or 6-bit for some tones) sample playback engine that was primitive by today’s standards. These low bit rates caused quantization noise during the sound’s decay, so non-decaying PCM waveforms were used, with decay introduced later in the analog circuitry. Furthermore, deviations in the clock and the analog circuitry downstream of the D/A converter caused variances in the pitch and decay characteristics. And though the TR-727 lacked the ability to edit sounds, the combination of these factors ultimately led to it being highly sought after for its iconic sound and infectious groove.

Sound that goes from vintage to radical.
Taking inspiration from aftermarket modifications, our advanced circuit modeling offers parameters that let you dig under the hood and modify the sound in all manner of ways. Every sound has ultra-smooth tuning and decay, and you can even overdrive the internal circuitry, tweak how each PCM waveform behaves, and adjust the PCM clock from 6.25 kHz to 100 kHz for some serious sonic mischief. This kind of sound-shaping capability makes the TR-727 feel new and exciting, with endless creative possibilities for today’s music.
