Take a first look at Behringer’s TR-808 clone [Watch]
Modeled after Roland’s famous TR-808 drum machine, released in 1980, Behringer’s RD-808 is an update to the equipment that would become highly influential in electronic music production since its 80’s introduction. The TR-808 proved to be so iconic that Roland and UNIQLO even recently partnered to produce a TR-808 tee.
The RD-808 reportedly totes 11 independent analog outputs for recording drum patterns on multi-track audio, as well as an option to use the USB port to sync MIDI data.
Behringer has stated that they will present the RD-808 to the market in just a few more months, but fortunately those interested in getting their hands on the incoming model can get a behind the scenes look at the RD-808 now.
