Deadmau5 - Pets (Roland TR-8S Cover)

YouTuber gattobus got his hands on the new Roland TR-8S sampling drum machine. The $700 device combines the classic Roland drum machines with a sample-based synth engine, which is a pretty killer combo for recreating EDM and House tracks. He put it to use in this domain by covering Deadmau5's Pets.

Video Description:

This is the very first song I programmed and played with my new Roland TR-8S Sampler Drum Machine. All you hear comes from this little beast only!!! Recorded Straight to my MOTU audio interface.
TR-8S is truly an incredible instrument, even better than I thought.
There's a little synth engine inside it (sample based), with built in ACB filters, envelopes, LFO, lot of FXs... and it sounds huge! It can be used like a groovebox!!! I love it!!! :-)
In this video I also used some samples recorded from Roland System-8 (Jupiter-8 mode).
I hope you like it!!! ;-)

Very nice job.

Sample bases though?

With all those boutique synths so shocked not a real synth engine.
