TS-808 - TR-808 emulation
The TS-808 is a software emulation of the Roland TR-808.

The TR-808 service notes provide full schematics for each voice.  I used them to make SPICE simulations of the circuits. I also analysed the best samples I could find (The Tape808, by Goldbaby), and tweaked the sounds until the waveforms and spectral content were as close as possible to the real thing.  Most of the voices have more parameters and a greater range than their hardware predecessor.

This is the best 808 VST that I've used so far. The only complaint I have is when a part of the window is off screen and you move it back, there's some graphical glitches on the interface. But the sound is amazing!

Love this Drum Machine, played it alongside a well known paid for 808 and actually thought this was better. Thank you Tactile :)

This and Tromine are great, although the Tromine weighs 500 MB. Can't beat the 3.5 MB physically modeled. -==[He who controls the SPICE controls the universe!]==-

Tromine GT weighs in at 1.75MB not 500.

I had to admit it, I give this 5 out of also. Try to play Keith Sweat's Make It Last Forever using the TS 808. Sounds just like the machine Teddy Riley uses.

This shit is Dope but The MARVIN PAVILION Tromine GT ist better. The Bassdrum has more Power ,the Rimshot and The Cowbell sounds are more real 808

Also, includes a mono and a stereo version of the dll (for hosts that send a mono signal to only one channel). Sounds VERY 808

Well done. Very realistic sound. Maybe the best freeware synthdrum till now.
