    Have you seen the TR-09? I like it but have no need for it at the moment.

    Back for the gazillionth time. It's affordable and has the original's aesthetics in compact form, but there are so many options for getting those sounds by now that can't really get excited by this much anymore.

    I'm interested! 10 outs over USB?? I have enough drums, but this one is getting adopted! Timely as I was just looking at the Aira version yesterday. I wonder if it can be modded to give an extra long decay on the kick.

    Doubtful as it's so small and all digital (unless it's already a "hidden option" like those extra features on the TR-8). But you never know...

    Awesome but I'll pass. I looked at the little JP09 and TB03 before, but the stupid docking system put me off. It looked and felt cheap and flimsy to me and really tiny to work with my fat fingers.
    I like big knobs and I cannot lie.

    I also don't really need a (rather limited, let's be honest) analog drum machine with (again, let's be honest) the most overused and sampled drum sounds in human history.
    But that's me and my money. If all you ever wanted was 'a real 808'... which I totally understand, I'm just not that guy... then this is the closest you'll get and for the money it'll be
    a no brainer.

    Yeah, my thoughts as well – although this isn't analog, it's the same Roland's proprietary ACB emulation that's been used in the Airas and Boutiques. For the "real 808" - besides the real 808 - I'd probably put my money on a Yocto or a Miami. But as said, this is great bang for the buck & most likely as close an emulation as it's gonna get (as in nobody's gonna care or notice anyway).

    And here I was thinking it was analog... not that I'm a purist, far from it.. I love digital synths. But this is one where I do care.
