The Classic Analog Drum Machine Recorded to Tape

The 808 is easily the most recognized drum machine in history. It's responsible for the birth of countless genres - hip hop, electro, techno, house, and a variety of sub-genres too countless to mention. Although it was created in early 1980, it is still extremely relevant and modern sounding, and can be heard on everything from a Lil Jon dirty south radio hit to a LIES techno 12".


We took our 808, recorded it through a huge SSL 4000 console (this board has an incredible dynamics and EQ section, used on countless hip hop records from the 80s on). A lot of the time, people who own an 808 wonder why it doesn't sound like it does on their favorite records. Using this console, you can get a lot closer to that sound.
