Virtual Drums (VSTi), Drum Loops and Samples (82)


TS-808 v. (free, Creative Commons)

The TS-808 is a software emulation (VSTi plugin) 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.

The TS-808 was a labour of love - I made it because I wanted to make music with it. I decided to make it available at no fixed cost because I thought others would enjoy using it too. If you use it a lot, and especially if you derive an income from your use of it, please consider making a donation. The TS-808 was made with SynthEdit.

There are two versions of the TS-808: Mono and Stereo. Tactile Sounds recommends  the Mono version for most purposes. The Stereo version was developed because some hosts send mono signals to the left channel only.
