Description

Behringer's RD-8 is a much-anticipated reinterpretation of the most iconic drum machine of all time: the Roland TR-808. Re-live, recreate, and re-purpose the tones of Chicago acid house, the genesis of modern hip-hop, and the backbone of techno with this stunning adaptation of one of the most influential electronic instruments. If you want Bass Drum that thumps and snares that snap, the RD-8 is a stellar and affordable way to find them.

Offering the same intuitive sequencing style as the original 808 (complete with vintage-style buttons), the RD-8 provides a strikingly similar workflow to the original. Its 64-step sequencer is capable of polymeter, step repeat, real-time triggering, and countless other performance features: but its intuitive layout simultaneously makes it simple to lay out a driving, reliable rhythm in no time. Pattern mode and song mode provide access to extended sequencing potential, allowing for the creation of lengthy, evolving rhythms.

The internal FX bus provides a Wave Designer and dual-mode Analog Filter. The Wave Designer provide attack and sustain controls, applicable to individual voices for dynamic shaping of the core drum sounds. The switchable lowpass/highpass, 12dB filter provides access to all manner of sweeps and ringing resonances: and best of all, cutoff knob movement can be recorded to the sequencer, overdubbed, or step-edited for precise tonal sculpting.

All of this combined with 11 individual audio outputs, extensive connectivity options, parameter chaining, and more makes the RD-8 a true 21st-century rhythm machine worthy of the 808 legacy.
