The new TR-808 MIDI retrokit
The TR-808 retrokithas been redesigned to make it smaller, easier to fit, and incorporating a new feature. The new kit has all the functionality of the old kit which is: Bi-directional (MIDI In and Out) plus Thru socket Full Velocity control of sounds from MIDI In (or normal / accent mode can be selected if required) Sounds can be mapped to whichever MIDI notes you want MIDI Clock In and Out Any MIDI channel can be selected
The new feature is: Auto clock detect. The clock switch fitted to earlier units to select internal or MIDI clock has been removed. The new kit will ignore internal clock if already playing from MIDI, or ignore MIDI clock if already playing from internal.
