They can improve on the TR-8S, which already sounds way better than the TR-8. With that said trying to "perfectly" emulate an analog TR808 with digital modeling is definitely a tall order. I think they did a pretty good job of at least getting in the ballpark.

The RD-8, on the otherhand, IS analog and IS hard to beat, especially at it's price point.
Hey it was joke.
