Unless you don't even know what a drum-machine is, and lets face it - would be here if you didn't? The 808 was the first product of its kind to offer pattern-based step-sequencing, the Roland TR-808 helped to shape the quirky and instantly recognizable sounds of the 1980s. Propelled by its booming bass drum of doom, the 808 became a staple of hip-hop, R&B, and pop, appearing on more records than any other drum machine. Expensive and hard to find, the TR-808 is a rare treasure on today's vintage-instrument market.
Roland Product Manager Vince LaDuca relates, "We're truly excited to be able to offer to our MV-8000 users vintage Roland sounds. We know how popular these sounds are, so we decided to bring out the original machine from the Roland archives, sample it using a premium signal path, and share it with our users. It's just one more way for us to show our committment to our loyal customer base."
