The story

In 2015 I made an April fools video saying I'd created an '808 drumhead' which was a fake, of course - but then the cogs started turning and I wondered if I could actually make an acoustic recreation of an 808 - obviously this doesn't sound exactly like an 808 what would be the point and where's the fun in that! - But - I've analysed the timbre of the sound choices in the drum machine and tried to recreate them using mic placement, dampening, stick choice, drum choice and even placing drums within drums.

In the course of experimenting, I recorded some extra drums in the sessions that I didn't feel fitted with my brief of an acoustic 808, but were still useful sounds. The ACx8 presents these! Enjoy.
