£339 UK.

Already got a TR08 7X7, but this looks so good.

Already the complaining starts...
So, do you fundamentally believe that digital algorithms will never be able to faithfully reproduce the sound of a real 808?
So technology can succeed in flying to mars and developing a real AI, but emulating a drummachine from 1980 is out of reach?

Rappers and techno hipsters are a different demographic.

808

Multiple output via USB. I was hoping for the TR-08 and SH-01A to be in the Designer series, but these, and the TR-09 are the only Boutique units I would buy! I think the SH-01A looks nice!

Not at all I think the ACB will be closer to the original ideal and I may end up buying but I don't get the serious gas as I would from an all analogue version.

Can we assume the individual outputs are 96k and thus unusable for us with ADAT based systems?

Definitely not.
You should assume the same specs as the TR09 et al.

Glad I sold my TR-8. This will be much better for me as I really only cared about the 808 sounds and I hated that green/plastic build. This looks and feels much more professional.

What does that mean Jamie - that you can have one track, but it only triggers some times and not others?

i.e. unlike the real one, where if you don't want to trig you'd have to pull the cable out of the trigger?

Behringer will do one but it will take you back to only an approximation of the right date, albeit very cheaply.

You could travel back to great moments in history, but miss them by 3 minutes.....
1) Watch the calm seas, moments after titanic fully dissapeared under the waves
2) Arrive just in time to see Maradonna celebrate his beautiful, famous hand of god goal, but be confused as to the reaction of the the English team
3) Watch the Titans party, just after they clashed?

Reputations again being put ON THE LINE

Old dudes hunchbacked with tweezers and strong bifocals is the new rock'n'roll

Is the trigger the egypt-egypt spike or have they gourmet-boutiqued it into a bieber marimba?

If the TR-08 top knobs fit the real 808, I think many would be buying them just as a source of knob replacement, as you can't get the originals anymore!

Love the detail on it, that's why it looks so good, like the gnarled tempo knob etc
