Also, it is noteworthy to mention that the aim of the TR-808 development team was to design not a drum machine, but a drum synthesizer. It was not for mimicking a real sound, but to provide possibilities to create ideal sound. However due to the limited performance, the physical volume, and the cost of the analog devices at that time, we had to abandon this original target that we were pursuing.

says tge original AIM was ABANDONED.
dont make up stuff..
Yeah, you'd really love the article if you read all of it. They reduced the circuit complexity and exposed parameters due to those exact constraints but the aim was the same. Don't get all aggro.
