Introduced by the Roland Corporation in early 1980, the TR-808 drum machine was released to the general public. What Roland didn’t know was this iconic drum machine of the 80’s would still be used in studios worldwide for the next 35 years and re-invent the sounds of multiple genres through the decades. It’s claim to fame started with Hip Hop and the Electro sound from the US, then evolved through UK Dance music, popped it’s head in every genre from Techno to Drum & Bass and now it’s the main drum sound of Trap, there’s no holding back this monster of a drum machine from now or the future.
Authentic Roland TR-808’s in perfect condition have become harder and harder to find year on year so here at Zenhiser we decided it was time to sample the hell out of a perfect condition TR 808, then run it through some awesome analogue gear and deliver a pinnacle pack of TR-808 drum sounds plus a superbly programmed array of drum loops that have spanned the 808 decades. We really went to town with the drum sampling of this 808 drum machine, developing new techniques of takes with altering decay and tone times to give you the music producer as much control as if you actually owned this awesome drum machine. Every preset has been sampled to perfection and quickly folder’d for ease of use so all you need to do is assign the drum samples to your DAW or sampler and voila, you have an authentic RolandTR-808 right there in your studio, ready to use and abuse!
