Thanks, I can't wait to have a listen as it seemed it's not only a tuning difference in the comparison videos, also those of the TR-08. Will listen later today.

They sound quite different. The second one seems to have a much quieter kick and a much sharper hi hat/ cymbal tone as far as my perception goes. Also the snare seems different.

Thanks for taking the time to do this! I take it the 808 is first(?). The cymbals on the second seem higher pitched to my ears and "cleaner", if that makes sense. Prefer the first lot.

Does the TR-8 have the same sounds as the TR-08?

I didn't find #2 disgusting but I don't think it's really up with #1 .

Great demo of course, I listened 4x

Yes, the metal always is revealing, a whole bunch of high pitched square waves... total aliasing nightmare unless heavily filtered away

Thanks everyone. I'm glad you all enjoyed the demo. Yes, the first one is the TR808 and the second one is the TR-8 as a few of you've al guessed. This is actually the first time I've actually sat and listened to the two and compared them. The cymbals are a dead giveaway, which is no surprise. I had to admit though, the TR-8 snare sounds pretty good. The TR-8 kick booms pretty good, but the 808 has more harmonics in it's kick. I'm also surprised at how close I was able to get the TR-8 clap to the 808's.

In that particular comparison, the tr8 got smashed into a billion pieces
