Tactile Sounds releases TS-808                     22nd April 2010

Tactile Sounds has announced the release of TS-808, a software emulation of the Roland TR-808 hardware drum machine. It was created by reference to the TR-808 service notes and extensive analysis of samples.

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.



  • TS-808 is a drum synth, not a sampler.
  • Most of the voices have more parameters and a greater range than their hardware predecessors.
  • All parameters can be automated.
  • Remote control is available via host mapping or MIDI learn.
  • There are 8 outputs.
  • Each voice can be routed to any output.

TS-808 is free and is available for Windows as a VST instrument plug-in.
