I never had an original 808 but there's something really strange in that amazona's comparison. Sure the 808 parts sound better but it's like it's processed when you hear that growl in the decay of snare+clap that's something I never heard in any recording of 808 from the 80's.

Also the cowbell sound has shorter decay. It sounds cool from a modern perspective but samely, 808's cowbell in 80's records sounded more like the two clones. I suppose their 808 has been specifically tuned by some tech and is no longer sounding like a factory unit.

From what I heard in other videos from the RD-8 there sure is some way to make it sound convincing so I just ordered mine thank to Jamie Munroe
