Good sounding clone of the Roland TR-808 drum machine. The analog drum circuitry is the of the 808 but built with modern components, yet the sound is very close to the original. The Miami has the same instruments with the same parameters like the original, just the BassDrum has enhanced control ranges (e.g. the decay time is 2-3x longer). BassDrum: Level, Tone and Decay SnareDrum: Level, Tone and Snappy LowTom / LowConga (selectable): Level, Tuning MidTom/ MidConga (selectable): Level, Tuning HiTom / HiConga (selectable): Level, Tuning RimShot / Claves (selectable): Level HandClap / Maracas (selectable): Level CowBell: Level Cymbal: Level, Tune and Decay Open HiHat: Level, Decay Closed HiHat: Level The sequencer has six different operation modes and offers memory for 192 patterns, organized in 12 patten groups with each 16 patterns. One pattern can be up to sixteen steps long. In Pattern Play-Mode you can chain adjacent patterns from the same pattern group. Patterns can be copied, also into other groups. The Pattern Write modes are used to create sequences with classic chase-light programming and in addition via playing the instruments live in the TapWrite mode. Clear allows you to erase notes. 4 different scales are available and in the 4/4 scale there´s also shuffle (two shuffle types, each with 5 modes). Accents are set just as notes are and the accent intensity can be adjusted with it´s level control. In the TrackPlay and TrackWrite modes you can chain patterns to create song structures. The Miami has an integrated tempo generator but it can also be synchronized to a DIN Sync signal or a MIDI clock. Alternatively you can use the instrument as DIN Sync master. The separate drum instruments can be played with MIDI notes, velocities above 100 will activate accent. All drum instruments have individual outputs; if a cable is inserted this instrument will be removed from the sum. connectors 11 individual and one sum output (1/4" sockets, mono) Accent output (12V impulse, 10ms long) MIDI In, DIN Sync In/Out (selectable) input for external 14V AC power supply (included) 424 x 169 x 58mm (BxTxH) Weight 1.449 kg


New TR909 clone from Acidlab - Detroit

Real analog competitor to the TR09. No info about price, probably close to the Miami.

Behringer RD808 Analog Drum Machine

...give it the name "808" or actively promote that it simulates the 808: e-licktronic Yocto, Midibox MB-808, System 80 880, Acidlab Miami, Drumline 808 Pro, TipTop RS808, D16 Nepheton, Novation Drumstation and I'm sure many more. I'm a designer and sympathetic to Roland's plight, but if I didn't renew the copyright on an illustration I made...
